How to access orkut or any other website when it’s

blocked by a filter!
A large number of office going people face a problem accessing social networking site like orkut,
myspace etc from office or workplaces since they have been blocked by the corporate firewall.
There are a number of ways to bypass the firewall that is your corporate office has installed.
Some of the ways to bypass the Firewall to access blocked sites depend on how powerful the
firewall is. Depending the weakness of the firewall installed you can use these hacks, tips to
bypass the firewall. Some of them are really easy some require you to install some kind of
There are a number of ways to go about all of them have been outline here.

1. Using Google services to bypass a firewall to access blocked sites

In this hack we try to exploit Google's Translation service to bypass the firewall to access
orkut. If you notice the url it is translating from English to English.
Use the given link below and try logging in to orkut.|en&
sometimes the link may break out from the frame example when you initially login into Orkut. It
might redirect you back to in which case again use the given link above.

Next is using the Google Mobile Search to access blocked Websites.
This is not a great option since it displays them as it would look like when you are viewing them
on a mobile phone. Also it strips out all the javascript content and CSS scripts and breaks a
longer page into several smaller pages.

2. Using a Proxy Server For bypassing Firewalls at office.

First find a "proxy server." Simply search the internet for "proxy servers". (Even a good proxy
server might not work later. Therefore, learn how to find them. For these instructions, we will use
an actual proxy server in Taiwan with the technical specs "address" and "port
8080". Try these links List of Proxies A directory of free web-based proxy services and A
Directory of free proxy servers ) Then proceed as follows:

Internet Explorer 6.0

1. On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, click the Connections tab,
and then click LAN Settings.
2. Under Proxy server, click to select the Use a proxy server for your LAN check box.
3. In the Address box, type the IP address of the proxy server.
4. In the Port box, type the port number that is used by the proxy server for client connections (by
default, 8080).
5. You can click to select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box if you do not
want the proxy server computer to be used when you connect to a computer on the local network
(this may speed up performance).
6. Click OK to close the LAN Settings dialog box.
7. Click OK again to close the Internet Options dialog box.

3. Using IP resolution to bypass weak firewalls to access blocked sites

This is for all those pathetic souls out there who are sad and worried
sitting in their office cubicle behind a firewall/filter, which has rendered your dear old orkut
inaccessible :-)! Well, just as something to do with my free time today as my brain was unable to
solve a bug in my current code, I decided to break open the filter settings of orkut being
inaccessible :-)! Pre-requisites

 Need to keep trying and trying hard @ breaking stuff

 A lil bit know-how of using computers... Essentially the mantra of Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V
 Ability to browse

That's right - anybody with the basics of browsing can break open the filter for orkutting Principle
behind the breaking This section can be skipped by the people who are not interested in
learning why you can break open a filtered site! Essentially what your filter is checking for is the
domain name to be blocked. IOW, the filter would search for ur HTTP header for the domain
name to be say and will block any headers from proceeding to the website :-)!
Now, how can we hack this? The answer is much simpler than it seems actually. At least for my
case, I just replaced the domain name by its corresponding IP address. For e.g. the time when I
wanted to access I went to Convert Host Name to IP Address or Find IP address of a
host - e.g. find IP address of host name of and found out the IP address of
Replace the occurrence in the URL on your web-address by the corresponding
IP. Boom, everything starts working!! Instructions specific to accessing orkut With orkut you
require a little bit more patience...

Step 1: Get the IP address of from here, and let's say it's named X.X.X.X
Step 2: Type
and replace "" with the IP address you have located. So, the address should be

Step 3: This would lead you to another blocked page, wherein the site address on the top/or the
URL that was blocked needs to be retrieved... Usually it's of this type -

A ray o hope?
Step 4: Replace with the IP address and the ::weirdnumberhere:: with your
unique XID [Everybody has a unique id], and click on enter.

You are through, pathetic soul :)!

Note: Put Screenshots in!! P.S. Please if you are asking questions, gimme the exact steps you
followed in the comment! Thanks P.P.S: I am not responsible for any loss of jobs, firings, hirings
etc because you followed my instructions!! Thanks and have a nice day!! ;-)!

4. Using the TOR Network Tor (The Onion Router) to bypass firewall restrictions Only For
Advanced users.

Tor (The Onion Router) is a free software implementation of second-generation onion routing —
a system enabling its users to communicate anonymously on the Internet. Originally sponsored
by the US Naval Research Laboratory, Tor became an Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)
project in late 2004. The EFF supported Tor financially until November 2005 and continues to
provide web hosting for the project.

Use TorPark which is A variant of the Firefox Browser with setting for TOR inbuilt inside it
