    I'm at a university, and apparently they recently blocked Scrapebox.
    It does not give me a message like "This program is blocked", Scrapebox just wont connect to the internet.
    SeoNuke works fine and connects to the internet, so I think they specifically blocked Scrapebox's internet access.

    My software DOES work when I use a VPN, but that's a pain in the a$$ to setup and it's slow.

    Is there another option, besides VPN or VPS? Maybe like changing my IP or DNS or something? Any software that could fix this?

    Thanks!

    your seo tools consume large amounts of bandwidth, which is probably why its been blocked. If they blocked scrapebox from functioning somehow, it probably wont be long until they hunt down and block every tool you use. Personally I would just get a VPS, or a dedicated server from online.net etc. Sometimes you just have to pay for the bandwidth if you want to do what you want. It will be less hassle than other options, and your university wont hassle you to death over it.

    I know its not the answer you were specifically looking for, but keep your options open.
