Not really reddits fault though, I hope you realize that? Reddit was already a huge and known time waster when it only had messaging. Chat was surely just the straw that broke the camels back.
Anyways we have bluecoat where I work too and since I'm a sysadmin I can't have it randomly block important blogs or forums that I'm trying to read so I've setup a number of ssh tunnels and manage them with the Firefox plugin FoxyProxy. That way FoxyProxy recognizes by the URL which proxy I need to use and sends me through that tunnel.
Improvise, adapt, overcome. Or quit your job.
If you have Chrome it's easy-peasy (I believe Firefox also). Get the extension FoxyProxy and then get yourself a list of some of some proxies and just pick a U.K. one. I've got a Macbook and am watching track cycling as we speak. I'm amazed at BBC's iPlayer, it has a phenomenal interface.
Well the NFL no longer offers gamepass for free in the Netherlands, where I would previously VPN to. I just discovered some proxies in Argentina, where gamepass is still free. I have setup a proxy with one in this list plugin for Firefox. Setup one of the proxy IPs within FoxyProxy and try to load the gamepass site. It took me 2 IPs before I got it to come up. Once it comes up you will have "watch" links for each game. Then you can disconnect from the proxy. Click watch and it will load up the gamepass viewer.
What it would do is create a proxy on your local network mapped to a local IP address (e.g. if your network router was 10.1.1.1, it would probably have a 10.1.1.X address on your LAN) which you can then configure in your browser to route traffic over, or you can choose to route everything (well, TCP or DNS, the rest isn't supported and will be dropped).
If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can grab FoxyProxy and define your own rules, so certain websites and addresses (e.g. *.onion) is routed through your proxy, or just goes through the clearnet.
Also, since it's WiFi capable, there will probably be an option to create a wireless network where all packets are sent over Tor when possible.
You nailed it FoxyProxyy.
When I was a young newly wed dub, there was a circuit assembly talk that came out and forbade oral. As a young newly wed couple it was all about the new things we could do. Especially since no one was allowed to explore and learn these things as teens. Well with that one talk, my wife (now ex) stopped it all and it turned in to missionary only. The part that really bothered me is that sex then turned in to a dirty thing for her and she never enjoyed it again.
Chrome uses the system proxy settings on every OS.
If you need independent settings you'll need a TCP wrapper (I use proxychains on Linux) to force it to route connections over a proxy, and that's not particularly useful if you need to switch proxies during a session.
It's for this reason primarily that I switched back to Firefox (FoxyProxy supports proxy-selection by regular expressions. Cool, right?).
> Where possible, I also recommend to use Tor for enhanced anonymity. This will make it harder for our ISPs and others to collect information about what sites we visit or how we use internet, at the cost of some browsing speed. For this, the addon FoxyProxy can help make it easy to switch Tor browsing, or even do so selectively.
Please do not advise people to use their current browser for browsing via Tor. Browser fingerprinting makes it trivial to break the anonymity that the Tor network is known for. Always use the Tor browser bundle when using the Tor network for browsing. Thanks!
No, it doesn't warn about Hola specifically. It's a standard warning for all extensions that control proxy information in your browser. Same happens with e.g. FoxyProxy, where you have to configure proxy settings yourself.
I didn't have any issue with it. Then again my setup on Firefox is angry. So I really don't worry.

Why does that belong here? Any proxy extension will cause that, such as FoxyProxy, because theoretically it could be malicious and reroute your traffic through an attacker.
Edit: r/lostredditors - I thought I was in r/assholedesign
This is using a VPN (or more easily a SOCKS5 proxy) to make your geographic location appear to be different to book cheaper airfare. See this Gizmodo article as an example.
FoxyProxy is a great extension for Firefox and I think Chrome too which lets you easily switch on/off a proxy and have multiple profiles, rules based on URL, etc... You would need to pair this with a free or paid proxy service to connect to. Free can be sketchy, but you can get a paid service like IronSocket for a couple bucks a month and they have a worldwide network of proxy servers. There are thousands of companies that offer these services, some probably very very cheaply.
From people trying to access the website :
126.96.36.199 Port : 80 (Thanks to oreo_for_president) via FoxyProxy to access the website was successful. Completed a purchase from the UK with PayPal (billing address UK) without a problem. Steam code for Deux Ex : HR was emailed to me within a minute.
ssh -D 9999 username@my-new-linode or
putty instructions for Windows users.
And FoxyProxy for Firefox.
Linode costs $20 per month for their cheapest box. And done.
These might not be useful to you, but these are some of the extension I use the most:
(Chrome app extensions)
Firefox has its own proxy setting. I'm not sure why the one used by IE and other Windows applications was changed. Maybe it was done to ensure that plugins also use the proxy.
In any case, the change was done by FoxyProxy, not Firefox. Extensions are able to do anything that an ordinary native executable can do.
A lot of good ideas here, some I hadn't known about.
emacs can also edit files through SSH using Tramp. Use emacs bookmark feature to remember your SSH URLs.
You can chain tunnels to get through multiple firewalls. For example, if you can get out from behind two firewalls with SSH but can't get in one from the other you can do a -R tunnel from one and connect a -L tunnel from the other to give you a tunnel that goes through.
You can do SOCKS tunneling (-D)
Lots of tunneling tricks. You can run squid or another proxy inside a firewall and set up a tunnel to it. This allows browsing of internal servers from outside (if an FF user, check out FoxyProxy plugin). Same for accessing IMAP, SMTP, licence servers. Well, just about any server.
You'll have trouble making I2P connections through tor, as I2P really wants to be able to accept inbound connections (I2P connections build two tunnels, one inbound and one outbound), and proxying through tor will prevent that. While it can still work without it, it will have a big impact on speed.
If you want to use mixed networks, you could consider just running them side by side, rather than one inside the other. A plugin like FoxyProxy can be used to sort *.i2p domains through the I2P proxy and the rest goes through Tor. Though if you do that, you might want to use to try and make your fingerprint as generic as possible, as you probably don't want adversaries to be able to fingerprint you across networks.
I'm always SSH'ed to my home machine anyway for IRC, so i just open a socks port with that. Then I use FoxyProxy and tell it to use the socks tunnel for reddit, imgur, etc. etc. -- the stuff my employer doesn't really care if I do, but i'd rather not have logged.
I don't know about posting_from_work (shouldn't you be working?) but here are the current security/privacy addons that I have installed:
Adblock Plus (+ pop-up, element hiding)
~~BetterPrivacy~~ (Firefox 5+ now supports flash cookie deletion)
Live HTTP Headers
Also some sites reject VPNs or at least make you fill out a captcha, so being able to disable it quickly is useful, and personally I think it's more secure for me to initiate my VPN connection on my regularly-updated Linux computer behind a firewall (the router), than an internet-facing router that I might well forget to keep up to date. I don't have to trust anything beyond my PC and the VPN provider
I'm actually thinking I might set up my VPN on a virtual machine and run a SOCKS proxy on it, meaning I can then use FoxyProxy to selectively disable VPN instead of having to turn it off globally when I want to shitpost on 4chan
Sure. I actually found out how to do it in this thread. Cheers to thiezzz
"Install FoxyProxy or a similar addon and search for free proxies in the Netherlands (or Argentina or New Zealand). I like to use ProxyNova. Choose a game to watch, click on it and when it starts to buffer, deactivate FoxyProxy.
In this way, you can stream the game with your own bandwith and not the super-lame proxy.
Note that if you want to watch another game, before switching, you have to activate FoxyProxy again.
All of this could need a couple of tries because it doesn't always work, but it's definately worth it!"
We should post the time when the show starts. Here is the Show's official page which streams the event.
This can be only viewed by UK residents because of an IP filter, but you can get around it by using a proxy.
Edit: I tried out and I got a proxy plugin for Chrome called FoxyProxy. This plugin is available for Firefox too. I put an UK proxy into it and now I can watch the talent show back and the current program here.
Edit2: The show is on air Monday 7.30pm (UTC/GMT+1) on the itv channel and Tuesday 5pm (UTC/GMT+1) on the itv2 channel. This means that in Hungary on Monday 20:30 on the itv channel and on Tuesday on 18:00 on itv2 channel you can watch it live. Or you can watch it back the following few days.
Perfectly safe to use. Don't do anything silly though like downloading and running files you don't trust.
Safe to use on any operating system.
You can still use your current browsers.
You can still do that just fine. You can either have two different browsers for clearnet and I2P, change your proxy settings whenever you want to change between them or use an extension which does it automatically based on the address. (.i2p or .com). I think FoxyProxy is recommended.
Hooktube is just a different interface that serves up the same content as YouTube and the page you open still calls the Google servers from your computer.
With the questionable nature of the sites creators, I would say skip the middleman and just use YouTube in a temporary container in Firefox. You can get a VPN service with FoxyProxy and then you'll be pretty hard to identify.
Here's my contribution, I use the official streaming website,
The advantage of this service is it has a DVR, so you can pause the game, come back without spoiling the score for you. That and the quality is quite high. (I just wish they deinterlaced the video properly!)
In order to access it properly you will need a US VPN/Proxy, I recommend FoxyProxy due to its ease of use and browser integration. A 6 month subscription only cost me $30 USD.
That and 7/8 games a week have been fully live and in 720p if your bandwidth can handle it.
Hmm, let's see what I have on this computer right now:
NoScript for Firefox is essential (NotScripts is the closest equivalent for Chrome/Opera, but lacks a few features and requires some extra setup).
I also use XMarks for cross-browser bookmark synchronization and LastPass to handle non-critical passwords (basically everything except email and finance).
TreeStyleTabs for Firefox is pretty nice if you're like me and have dozens and dozens of tabs open on a regular basis.
I use FoxyProxy in rare cases where I need to easily switch between raw internet and proxying to my home network (I use tunneling over SSH, it's remarkably easy to setup if you know how to set your router up for public/private key authentication). This generally only comes up when using public internet somewhere like a cafe or airport.
Okay everybody, tips & tricks time!
If you want the game for 1€, just:
1) pick a polish proxy you like. Any proxy, really
3) add the item to cart and apply the 10thanks code for the discount
4) before logging into your Uplay profile, disable FoxyProxy or whatever you are using
5) log in
6) purchase via PayPal
The Steam Key will be displayed after successfully sending the money. Happy exploring the Capital Wasteland...
What browser are you using? I found the FoxyProxy addon for Firefox works well. Get a proxy from here and click on the game link from there.
Oh god indeed it does.
I had foxy proxy set up for a number of different port numbers on localhost based on which server I needed traffic to go through, combined with the local proxy I was sitting behind, and setting up rules to redirect different sites through each one was just lovely.
I don't need to deal with that quite so complicatedly anymore, so I typically just switch on or off the proxy these days. FoxyProxy is a wonderful tool that is very well executed.
Also you can use an extension like FoxyProxy to use the proxy on youtube only.
Otherwise you could make a PAC File and host it on the VPS so you don't have to install anything. I never tried it but it seems pretty standard and should be more lightweight than an extension. I think mediahint used to use a PAC file internally to forward part of the traffic through their proxies.
Firefox is plenty fast for me, though I'm only running a couple handfuls of extensions (AdBlock Plus, BetterPrivacy, Delicious Bookmarks, Firebug, FireGestures, FoxyProxy, Live HTTP Headers, NoScript, User Agent Switcher).
It worked for me with this steps:
Todo este tiempo haciendo malabares para poder usarlo y justo cuando me voy lo sacan en Argentina? Que mala leche.
Alguien sabe algo como el MediaHint para simular que estoy en Argentina aunque sea por 2 minutos?
EDIT: Gracias FoxyProxy, por este Argentina 2 - Inglaterra 0
Firefox - because it's 64bit and I can use something like FoxyProxy to define multiple proxy servers and not use the system wide proxy that Safari is only capable of doing.
I like Chrome, but it's only 32bit, and won't work with some of the software (mainly Juniper VPN) as they require a 64bit version of Java. If Google ever ports Chrome for Mac from 32bit to 64bit I'd probably use that exclusively.
Safari is nice, but the fact that I can't use anything other than a system wide proxy for it stops me from using it more.
Yes. I watched the whole 2012 season like this. I installed FoxyProxy for Chrome, looked up a Dutch proxy, connected to the stream, let it buffer for a second and turned FoxyProxy off so I could watch the games with my regular internet speed.
Download a proxy add-on for your browser like FoxyProxy (Firefox) or Proxy Switchy (Chrome). Find a UK IP on a proxy list site (you can even pay for really good ones). For FoxyProxy, left-click FoxyProxy (bottom left corner of window) and click "Add New Proxy". Fill in IP and port info; hit OK. Right-click FoxyProxy thing; choose the IP you added. Similar in Proxy Switchy, but it's "Add Profile" under "Options", and you have to check the box for "Use the same proxy server for all protocols".
Getting a good IP is the trick. Just try different ones until one works. It will almost always be slow to get going for videos (for free ones), but it will keep playing once it starts.
Or if you just want to use firefox for everything, use FoxyProxy and make rules so work sites use no proxy/standard web proxy, and all others use your tunnel.
It is a very good tool, well worth putting up with the occasional crash and memory leak (when used on linux) for. There's a free version but it's rather slow.
>After I finished testing it, I really didn't understand why they don't distribute it as a normal plugin like FoxyProxy or HTTPFox.
The firefox addon is only a component of it.
>my test sites did not produce any results -- these were generic reflected XSS vulnerable sites.
I'm pretty sure it isn't mean to detect reflected XSS; it's for DOM-based issues only.
Why not also Firefox? You can use an extension to use different proxy based on URL pattern (so Tor for .onion and I2P for .i2p sites) such as FoxyProxy, or better you can have different Firefox profiles: firefox -no-remote -ProfileManager to create and manage profiles (the no-remote option tells it to ignore any running instances, otherwise it would attach to it and ignore command line arguments), there create an I2P dedicated profile with the right proxy settings.
firefox -no-remote -ProfileManager
It's not just Top Gear.. Most BBC America programs are sliced down as well.
Consider the beloved Dr. Who, .. True BBC episodes are 60min long.. In the US they're 45-50min long to allow for commericals. Over the course of a given season americans are missing out on 2 hours per season of awesome stuff from the BBC shows they know and love.
The only way to fly is to go to and buy a Brit Proxy.
Then configure Firefox and use the \iplayer and enjoy every last second of British TV goodness.
Every few years, I get sick of the poor performance of Firefox and Thunderbird on the same system, and I try SeaMonkey. Then something doesn't work, and I have to switch back. Usually related to some extension I need (And I only need a handful...Ghostery, ABP, FoxyProxy (these days), Enigmail) not having the new version of Seamonkey in its listed compatibility range. Now I use Chromium+Thunderbird. Nothing seems able to replace Thunderbird...
In both cases, set the browser to send DNS queries through proxy or they will leak. In firefox, open "about:config" set "network.proxy.socks_remote_dns" to true.
In Opera, open "opera:config" and enable "Use Remote SOCKS DNS Lookups"
It is still possible. ~~Only on Linux~~ /u/codereign corrected me that you could do the same thing on Windows, which is very nice to know. You could download the tor package on your distribution's package management. The default tor port is 9050. So after you run tor (sudo service tor start), open Firefox/Chromium/Konqueror and in proxy, set your SOCKS to localhost, port 9050. To better setup, use FoxyProxy to switch the proxy of choice.
Here is an edit. It isn't recommended to use anything else other than TBB, unless TBB doesn't work (eg. root mode).
Edit: Yeah, the link won't work unless you can access ".i2p" sites. It isn't hard to do though. I used this guide:
Go to the "CONFIGURING FOXYPROXY TO REACH EEPSITES (.I2P)" section, and follow the simple instructions to install FoxyProxy on Firefox. It also works just fine on Chrome, I installed and configured it according to those directions, only about two hours ago. Let me know if you need anymore help!
For those unaware, this fix allows users of FoxyProxy to use their remote DNS for lookups as opposed to their local DNS.
For example, in previous versions using a SOCKS Proxy with FoxyProxy and going to , although keeping the handshake on the server left DNS requests up to the local computer. This meant someone locally (those redditors browsing at work) could see if someone was probably going to
EDIT: For those wanting a better explanation of the previous problem see this previous reddit post,
FoxyProxy, Firefox 3.5, and DNS Leaking - The problem and a solution
Most likely the video stream is transmitted on a different port/protocol and FoxyProxy takes care of only plain HTTP. Try to setup a VPN and not just a http proxy on your virtual server. Openvpn is a good secure open source vpn solution. You can find short howto's on the web written for the linux flavour you have installed on your server.
1) Install DD-WRT on Router at home
2) Turn on External SSH access on that router
3) Download Firefox Portable, put on thumb drive
4) Download PuTTY Portable, put on thumb drive
5) Install FoxyProxy on Firefox Portable
6) Connect to DD-WRT SSH server with PuTTY Portable
7) Proxy to PuTTY with FoxyProxy
8) Browse whatever the fuck you want
Our district has a similar filtering system. Reddit is safe, but imgur is blocked. So is XMPP (port-blocking) because apparently someone thought that's what Facebook uses to communicate or something.
The district literally has ZERO control over what's blocked. To get the filter status changed, they have to try and get a hold of Barracuda (the people who run the filter) and request to have the filter policy modified.
After I got my phone and laptop, I said "to hell with that" and got Tor, Orbot, and FoxyProxy. I now quietly chuckle as kids complain about not being able to go on Pandora, while I do pretty much whatever the hell I want.
Found a workaround:
I cleared my cache and cookies and followed these instructions and it's working again. Apparently they caught on to people using Hola Unblocker and just redirected all that traffic to their subscription page. Maybe update your post with the new directions so people can see. :) Credit goes to u/thiezzz
FlashGot - Even though you might get the impression this is a download manager of some sort (and maybe it is) I use it to download YouTube and other Flash videos swifty and effectively.
Bazzacuda Image Saver Plus - if you like saving images, this is a god send.
DownThemAll - nice for snagging threads of pics from chan sites.
Session Manager - because Firefox's built-in session management sometimes fucks up, not very often, but sometimes.
FoxyProxy - convenient if you use web proxies and want to switch or only send certain URLs through them.
Side Tabs - because 100 tabs fits better on the side of the browser window than on top.
Oh dear god, you should see the zillions of addons that I have 's the problem with reddit, you get suggest so many exciting things...
Yes it's chrome, I have just moved the windows taskbar to the side.
I will create a longer post later, but for now:
First in the address bar the chrome zoom icon, not an extension.
Next is the icon for HoverZoom, then AutoPager, then Flashblock, then AdBlockPlus, then RssSubscriptionExtension (dunno why that's running), then the bookmark star thing (again chrome thing, not an ext)
Outside it are NoAds+ (why do I have two adblock ext?), then FitToWidth, then FoxyProxy, the GoogleHangout, then Feedly, then TamperMonkey, and finally the chrome options icon.
You might be interested in Derpnet.
Comes configured for tor, i2p and freenet.
Bonus: !g44FzQgK!KObscAiIHYCRLtDkk2YnixyGXzdR_RqdnrbnAeedbqs my FoxyProxy settings. So it'll detect .onion and .i2p so you don't need to switch modes on FoxyProxy
If you use FireFox, I think there's an add-on called FoxyProxy that lets you switch easily.
Chrome and IE (and other software) use the proxy settings from Windows, so I don't see how flipping between them would work but who knows, I've never tried...
I managed to find all the episodes easily but the extras on the NBC site are hard to find and most of them had missing parts.
I even installed itunes hoping they would be for sale on there but I was disappoint.
Incase anybody is interested, I was able to watch them from with a firefox plugin called 'FoxyProxy'
I had trouble finding a proxy that worked but FoxyProxy have a service where you can purchase a proxy from any country you select. So i purchased a US proxy for £6-8 per month.
If you cancel within 3 days no charge is made.
I watched all the videos and then cancelled at the end of the night. paypal confirmed the cancellation... I got to see Señor Chang shoot fricking lazer beams from his eyes!
Everything went better than i could have dreamed.
Okay, so what I did was purchase a Proxy subscription from this website.
I selected US/6 months for $30USD (it will last until finals time)
I then used their browser extension for Chrome which can be added from here
Then they will send you a log in including the Proxy URL/Port as well as a user name and password to access it.
Using this information it will have details of where to add these details in the FoxyProxy extension.
Once you got that all going, Click the extension and select "Use Proxy [url:port] "
It will ask for the Username/Password
If you log in successfully, it should now appear that you are browsing from the US.
Then free roam for the NRL Streaming! :D
(I hope that makes as much sense, I plan to set this up for my Dad so I got to make it as simple as possible)
Or just download FoxyProxy and boot up the game through an international free proxy. It only checks your location when you turn the game on, then you can switch back to a direct connection and watch on your full-speed connection.
When you want to access i2p's darknet, you do have to set your proxy settings to go through 127.0.0.1 on the i2p proxy port. That'll let you access the darknet trackers. If you leave the proxy settings you should be able to browse the web, but it'll actually go through i2p, providing you with a (slow) anonymizing proxy. So yes, you do have to switch back and forth to alternate between i2p and your ISP's connection.
Keep in mind that you can check on the status of your torrents without changing your proxy settings, by going to 127.0.0.1:<port>/i2psnark.
Also fortunately, there are addons for Firefox (and maybe Chrome) that let you switch the proxy on and off with one click: FoxyProxy.
Get a user agent switcher add on and some US based proxies if that fails. I like FoxyProxy, myself, but I use Firefox, . You have optionts.
User Agent switcher to pose as a Google Web crawler, since many sites still want to be listed on search results.
I rolled my own using linodes (and other hosting services) and Tinc with ed25519 keys, rather than the more common (and less secure) 2048-bit RSA key exchange that OpenVPN and other software supports.
Along with some reverse squid proxies and some creative nat rules on a dedicated proxy host, I can either browse semi-securely through any of a number of proxy servers on the home network (using FoxyProxy) or run up a dedicated virtual machine on its own VLAN, with an endpoint in one of several countries (with no DNS leakage, etc!)
I may be odd man out in this thread but I use Chrome out of habit more than anything. I tried it for a few days when I got my first Mac like 4 years ago but I was also coming from Linux and Windows where Chrome was the browser of choice for me. I also ran Firefox for years before that but I didn’t like the UI redesign and once I no longer needed the FoxyProxy extension, I switched to Chrome.
I'm guessing your proxies aren't being set right, you'll need to use something like FoxyProxy to route .i2p and Freenet requests appropriately.
What's happening is that your DNS requests for those domains are being sent to your normal DNS server (whatever you have that set as), you need to route your DNS requests to the i2p and Freenet services themselves as needed.
I like to set up my SSH proxy on port 443. This is the default port for TLS connections and apart from their long lifetimes my outbound SSH connections look just like the encrypted traffic from a GMail session.
If you're using Firefox, you should install FoxyProxy. Otherwise, you must ensure that you have set up your DNS queries to go through the proxy. It is a completely distinct param from the normal proxy config.
EDIT: I wanted to mention, for the record, that I have been fired twice outright for using SSH tunnels from inside the corporate firewall. It hasn't stopped me, but some people may give a shit about their crappy IT job.
Use an out of country proxy and you can watch games with Gamecenter normally blocked in the US because of NHL Network. Is easier to do with a (free) add-on for your browser: Proxy Switchy for Chrome, FoxyProxy for Firefox.
It's Couchpotato btw..
had a look at sublight, seems very useful unfortunately it seems it suffers from the same plight as most of the sites in that it's difficult to pinpoint foreign parts only subtitles.. i guess i'll have to stick to manual for that bit.
I'd add :
If you've been IP-banned from the forums, you can download and use FoxyProxy free proxy servers which can be used with a proxy program. These tools used in conjunction with the 'private browsing' features available on most mainstream browsers are a fairly easy-to-use tool set for circumventing ridiculous bans on varying sites, though I'd caution you not to use these proxies for sensitive information, checking bank accounts & the like. If you get banned again it's as easy as switching proxies & re-registering with an alternate account. This also assumes that the sites you wish to access don't use some form of advanced proxy-filtering.
It's a legitimate concern. If you use FoxyProxy to route .i2p requests through the local I2P proxy, you have the same problem. A malicious eepsite could embed a picture from a clearnet domain that he controls and thereby link the supposedly anonymous user to his real IP.
You can mitigate this by using RequestPolicy. You can furthermore protect yourself against script and plugin based deanonymization by using NoScript.
I don't think it does, however you could use FoxyProxy to force all domains except .onion to a proxy that doesn't exist.
I dont know what side-effects on security this may have, for example it may make you easier to fingerprint because someone could correlate that your browser is not loading clearnet links, and this would be consistent across all your tor circuits.
You could use NoScript, but it breaks a lot of sites. A user agent spoofing plugin probably wouldn't hurt either. Also, if you're using firefox, you can use FoxyProxy to configure it to connect through the Tor network.
every time I've tried going through the mexican store I get "too many re-directs" after hitting checkout. Turning off Hola before checkout kicks me back to the US store and even turning it off at the first step of checkout gives the same error, or doesn't load the page "No Data Recieved". Even going through FoxyProxy it's done this. Anyone else have this problem or is it just not destined to work for me?
"Necessary" is a strong word, "recommended" is probably a better choice. Chrome isn't completely open source, so nobody knows 100% what Google is or isn't collecting.
The best mix I've found so far of security + convenience for I2P is Firefox with the appropriate FoxyProxy patterns and the /r/privacy recommendations behind a paid VPN. There are of course numerous ways to get the job done.
I would admit, though, TAILS is probably a better option than my solution - just rather impractical and I think proper OpSec does more for you than any custom OS, plugin, VPN, etc.
Get a public transportation card. It's good for taxi, buses, and the subway.
The Shanghai museum is free admission, and a good place to go to for anyone interested in ancient Chinese art, sculpture, currency, pottery, etc.
The World Expo is taking place in Shanghai right now until October. There's some cool stuff there but the lines are longer than Disneyland.
I didn't try accessing Facebook or Youtube last time I was there, but I heard that FoxyProxy works well if you're a Firefox user.
Block all plug-ins (like Flash, Silverlight, QuickTime) by default. Block cookies by default and use the add-on CookieMonster to allow cookies on a per-site basis. Use add-ons Adblock Edge, Blender, Privacy Badger, NoScript, and RequestPolicy. You can also use Ghostery and Disconnect, though they may be redundant given what NoScript and Privacy Badger would already take care of. Use FoxyProxy if you're a heavy VPN or Tor user.
Check out ownCloud for calender and contact syncing. You can also use ownCloud for file syncing, though depending on your own setup you may prefer something like OpenVPN with SMB (standard Windows file sharing over a private network). Also check out Tahoe-LAFS.
Stealthy sux... for me it was only working half of the time - if at all.
I was fine using FoxyProxy for Firefox for quite a long time. But at some point it stopped working for me aswell.
Atm Im using Cocoon (for either FF or IE). I would suggest downloading it for a browser and use another browser to surf, so you just listen to music with FF/IE (cocoon actually slows everything else down super hard).
You can also use FoxyProxy with this setup to easily switch between using the proxy or not, or to setup rules for what sites use the proxy and what don't. Generating some safe browsing activity might be a good idea in case they really closely monitor things.
Thank you for doing that analysis! That's exactly what I expected, and it sounds like a pretty good idea. Given the anonymity-killing changes to the torrc, not using TOR for everything and not having the plugins sounds fine - it's just a tool to circumvent censorship reliably, without messing up your browsing experience, and it looks like it's pretty good for that purpose.
Did they configure the FoxyProxy AutoAdd feature? That one can autodetect if a site is censored (by looking for a pattern specific to the "this site has been blocked" notifications) and then automatically adds that site to the use-the-proxy list. If they preload it with some common patterns to automatically unblock censored sites in common censored countries, that would be awesome!
I have all outbound traffic from my windows machine blocked. When I proxy through a different host gchat works fine. I use firefox with a SOCKS 5 proxy (configured with FoxyProxy).
What kind of proxy are you using? Gchat uses a trick where it keeps a persistent http connection open. An HTTP proxy may not support that behavior.
Yeah, I am in the process of switching. Would say I use about 30% of the time Vivaldi and the rest of the time firefox now. Some stuff like FoxyProxy I have to find alternatives on Vivaldi first, before I make the total switch.
You're gonna have to do some Googling to find out what works best for you, but what I used was the FoxyProxy addon for Firefox, then entered a UK proxy I found on Google.
Try not to use this unless there's no other way to watch the episode, since it kind of drains BBC's bandwidth. Fortunately I haven't had to do this for a year or so, since thejosh has been pretty punctual about posting download links for each episode as it comes out.
Yeah, your edit has the truth of it. In my FoxyProxy patterns on my PC I have .android. whitelisted to go through my VPN; otherwise I get hit with server errors all the time.
China's government's drive to develop the Android branch "oPhone" isn't just a power play against Apple.
The number 1 reason to have a home router with DD-WRT/OpenWrt/Tomato is because you can use Putty's SSH tunneling abilities to create an encrypted link out of your work PC through your home broadband connection. There's no need to even leave a PC on at home. Use FoxyProxy to easily switch Firefox between no proxy and your encrypted tunnel with just two mouseclicks.
Full instructions (if using DD-WRT) with screenshots are available.
If you're concerned about traffic on port 443, pick port 80 or 8080; IT will see encrypted traffic on a port where it is expected.
If your home broadband has a dynamic IP, sign up with a free Dynamic DNS (DDNS), and have your DD-WRT router automatically update your ever-changing IP address with a dynamic domain like .
If you're concerned about IT seeing your domain lookups, FoxyProxy has an option to forward DNS requests down the tunnel.
There's a shiny brand new proxy extension API () that will let you install an extension (like FoxyProxy) to manage custom proxy settings.
Perhaps I misread the intent of your message, but the way you phrased things it sounded like you were advising to install an SSH server within Cygwin, running on the same Windows machine as Firefox, then to use FoxyProxy to create a SSH SOCKS connection to your own machine... O_o
Can you temporarily disable the FoxyProxy addon and just use Firefox's native proxy settings to narrow down where the problem may be located?
Make sure this site shows you are using Tor, then try an onion site again.
I was being flippant.
When IE has cultivated an ecosystem as rich and diverse as Firefox, I might consider changing. In the meantime, I enjoy
1) adblock plus
2) Bonfire IM
9) Reddit Enhancement Suite
10) User Agent Switcher
Not to mention the possibility to install things like FoxyProxy / TOR support, further plugins for firebug etc.
IE is dead to me, might as well be dead to the rest of the planet.
If you purchase , you can get around blackout restrictions by loading the game and entering your username and password behind a proxy (Firefox => FoxyProxy), then turning the proxy off once the video begins loading. This can be time consuming going through crummy proxies and having to potentially find new ones if your connection stumbles, but it works out to be a whole lot cheaper than cable during baseball season.
At work I use an SSH tunnel to create a SOCKS5 proxy to point my browser at.
Since Chromium refuses to do proxy-side DNS resolution I have switched back to Firefox with FoxyProxy.
Everything I do here is encrypted and appears to go to one address only.
Or set up a Linux computer at home and tunnel with a Socks Proxy. The FoxyProxy plugin can also be used with white/black lists and even automatically route traffic through the proxy on detection of the "this page is blocked" page.
1) Download FoxyProxy
2) Add a Proxy to the list
3) Select Mode: (Name of proxy/address of proxy using)
4) Hope it's fast enough to stream.
I've had better luck in Chrome than Firefox. I keep getting Firefox plug-in issues.
La solution c'est d'utiliser un proxy basé en France,
sous Firefox FoxyProxy fait ça très bien, mais les proxy gratuit ça rame...
Une fois de plus la solution la plus simple c'est d'attendre que quelqu'un uploade illégalement l'émission sur youtube.
Je te rapelle qu'en tant que Français à l'étranger tu as des élus à l'AFE et au parlement que tu peux spammé pour leur dire que tu aimerais regarder le service public(Car là ils ont leurs mots à dire) depuis ton ordinateur.
EDIT : Je vois que tu es aux U.S. Il y a donc une législative partielle en cours, Spamme les candidats ils te répondront (en tout cas c'est leur intéret)
Aim of this bundle is to provide an all in one package that people can install to really use the decentralized part of the namecoin DNS system, instead on relying on external DNS or proxy servers for .bit domains.
How to use it :
Unzip on the desktop (or where you want)
linux : Launch (on gnome, select : Launch in a terminal, must stay open, otherwise relaunch)
windows : Launch , then (both must stay open, otherwise relaunch)
Configure FoxyProx : Go to "Tools" → "Foxy Proxy Standard" → "Options", Open "File" → "Import Settings" and select the file "" (works for IE and chrome too)
Find a proxy server somewhere outside the UK, adjust your browser settings to use that proxy.
Also, remember to stop using the proxy; don't forget about it and then try to do your online banking.
If you have Firefox or Chrome, you could use something like FoxyProxy to make this stuff easier.
Exactly this is how I browse Reddit.
Except on step 4 I use FoxyProxy and a whitelist so that I only use the proxy when needed (Reddit, Gmail, etc). That way I hope not to look suspicious on the logs as I'll be browsing the already available pages with the company's proxy.
That's a real bummer. Rhapsody has a much larger song collection than anywhere else. I guess I should try to avoid using them when posting here for those of us not in the US.
btw, you might be able to use FoxyProxy with a US based server to still use the site, that might be too much trouble though....
Try an Argentinian one, those have worked wonders for me for the last two or three weeks. Because of your username I assume you're German; (also available in English, just click on the Union Jack) always has decent Argentinian proxies with FoxyProxy support (assuming you haven't stumbled upon that site yet).
This is almost exactly what I was asked to do. It's more nefarious than that though.
What management wants is a "portal" or "scoreboard" that's available to EVERYONE in the company (there are only a dozen of us, mind you) that will show you the last 100 sites visited by person. They feel this would be a better use of time than having me track down and blacklist sites. If everyone can see what you've been browsing, there is no need for blacklists because you won't do anything shady.
I, of course, will set up a proxy or something on the other side of it and use my trust FoxyProxy to get me on non-work sites (like reddit) while still showing activity on webmail / legit sites.
my solution was to use FoxyProxy AND tor together, so normal sites go direct, blacklisted since get redirected to the local socks port provided by tor and dissapear into the ether.
blocking tor is bastard hard, as long as you have an up to date initial set of peers to initially work with.
Thanks for your answers. Just bought F.E.A.R. 2 (yeah, I know it's not as good as the first one, but eh, I paid more for a drink last time I was at the restaurant). FoxyProxy was on, and then I switched it off before pressing that big-ass button and switched it back on before PayPal redirected me to Muve. The Steam key came like immediatly after that. This is a good day.
