Subject: By passing surf control

Hello Group,


Does anyone have any information on how to by pass a web 
content filter? We use Surf Control to monitor and filter web 
content. However, I have one of my users who was able to by 
pass this. We tried using a proxy to by pass just for testing 
purposes but it did not work. I am still trying to figure out 
what other method he used to do so. If anyone has any 
information , it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Kuda

Kuda,

You can just use the google translate feature and add any url you want to the end of it.
It acts as a proxy (sort of) and gets the page for you and translates it from english to english...
 
http://translate.google.com/translate?u=
 
Then just add whatever site you want
 
http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http://www.hotmail.com/

Not the most elegant solution for browsing content, but it does go straight past webfilter.
And I am sure there are more translation engines that could be used for the same purpose.

Cheers

Zach
