Our office or school normally will filter the content that deliver to or from us. It is to avoid us to access illegal websites or download illegal contents. Sometimes, even our Internet Service Provider install the filter to avoid access to certain website. So, i believe everyone will try some ways to bypass them, am i right?

Some people trying to use Proxy Server or VPN to bypass the filter. But, most of the free Proxy Servers are overloaded and it slow down the speed while VPN required monthly subscription. So, is there any other way to bypass the filter? Yes, it does. Thanks to BlogIsEverything, which provide an introduction about convert your URL to HEX code.

There are a few services which can provide conversion from text to hex:

  1. SwingNote
  2. Centricle

An example for the conversion:
Hex: %62%6c%6f%67%2e%74%65%63%68%73%6e%61%63%6b%2e%6e%65%74

Paste the Hex code in your browser and you will then being point to

Note: I try to paste them in Firefox, but it returns the search result from Google. But it works fine for IE. I still haven’t try with other browsers, anyone willing to help me try on them?

    tried with opera, firefox and IE all with no luck. firefox was the most promising as it spit me into google’s alpha-computing. still no luck though. i tried using angry IP scanner to look for vulnerabilities with the workstation which got me into c:/ but smartfilter must be pushing down from the server. my guess is that the only way to truely bypass it is to run a .exe or batch file to disable it’s hold in the registry

    If you are trying to access a blocked site from your school their security usually sucks. Most of the time there is an easy way around it. Don’t go directly to the first page for example if is blocked you can go to and then navigate from there. Same for most sites. Go to the site you want to use at home, go to the second page of the site and write down the url. When you get to school type the full url of the second page of the site and it should take you to it. Another option is ultrasurf on a usb drive and use it at most schools and offices. There is no installation required and uses a proxy to bypass security. If you are a little more savvy than most you can use PingTunnel to get online it uses tcp over icmp or NSTX which uses IP over DNS to bypass security. Hope this helps you all. Good luck
