    Guys, I really need your help with my situation right now.

    I live in the college dorms, and here we have an authenticated proxy server. That means, everytime I connect to the internet, I have to enter my college username and password to connect. I recently bought scrapebox and because of this proxy shit, scrapebox was never able to connect to the SB servers.

    My only solution to this was getting a VPS, and I got a trial from a VPS host and now I can't even seem to connect to that. Anyone has any kind of experience with authenticated proxy servers to know a way past them?

    I don't know if this info helps, but I CAN use market samurai on this very connection as it gives the option to add a proxy and username/password at the very start. However, I can't seem to connect any other software with this.

    If anyone has any idea about how to make this work, I'll be eternally grateful. Thankssss. =)

    Btw, I used Windows 7's remote desktop connection to try and connect, and it didn't work.

    Try using proxifier. I guess it will work.

    We need more info about the college network in order to effectively help you circumvent the restrictions. It sounds like you'll need some kind of tunneling, look it up on wikipedia if you don't know what that is. In short that means encapsulating a network protocol in an other one that's available.

    Some basic information is required about your network. Do you have at least a route to the internet with at least one port or protocol open? If the answer is yes, then you can exploit that easily. If the answer is no that leaves only one option, tunnel the traffic in https.

    For further information provide at least:

    output of "route print" from command line
    output of "ping whatever.com"

    copy and paste these here.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the reply. I don't know much about proxies, but here's how we access the internet: In Firefox we have to add the proxy and the port in the "HTTP Proxy" only. After that, whenever I first try to access some website, I have to enter my username and password.

    Well, I just tried pinging google.com in command prompt, however it returned a "request timed out".

    How do I find out if I have a port open or not?

    That looks good, from these we have the information that you do have a route outside.
    0.0.0.0 means the outside network.
    However icmp is blocked (ping) , so that's out.

    Let's test a few other things:

    1. Delete the post above, we don't want your college admins find that, do we? :)
    2. Test a few more things:

    - Try www.proxpn.com, can you establish a connection using that service?
    If yes then problem solved.

    - Does skype work without configuring the proxy server inside the application?

    If yes that means there is a way. I ask about skype because it does a lot of testing on it's own, it will try a lot of ports/protocols to connect.

    - Output of following commands:
    "ftp ftp.debian.org"
    Do you get a login prompt?

    If skype or msn still work on your network, they require certain ports to remain unblocked.

    You can tunnel your traffic through these opened ports.

    User (ftp.debian.org:(none)):


    This is the response that I get. Wkirk I really appreciate your help man. Thanks a looot! :D

    Anyways, yeah Skype does connect on its own without any issues and it works properly. I'm downloading proXPN to see if it works... :)

    Hi, yeah MSN and skype both work on my network. How do I find out about these ports and how do I use them for connections for my SEO softwares?

    You can setup a squid proxy server outside of your school network, for example on a VPS.

    Setup the proxy server on port 1863. This will bypass the proxy authentication, and tunnel your traffic through MSN port (1863).

    But, I would definately say Your-freedom is the easiest option here. It works with your college authentication.

    That means port 21/tcp (FTP) is open.
    Bam we have a hole on that firewall.
    Circumenting success probabilty = 100%.

    If proxpn - linked above - can't connect then we have two options:

    - Set up a tunnel on port 21
    - Use http/https tunneling

    The first one has the possible advantage of not requiring you to use your school login/password to access the outside world. Also data usage should be overlooked since FTP is designed to transfer lots of data. It "blends" into legit traffic more easily.

    The second one will require your login/password for the school proxy, and there is slightly more chance of getting caught in the long run. Still it's a viable option.

    Let me know about the proxpn results so we can proceed.


    Edit:
    Jeromespitfire's suggestion above is basically the same method we're setting up here, just different approach. You should try that too if having to use authentication is not an issue.
    End results will be the same. You will be able to connect to your VPS.

    Then we need to configure your VPS to accept remote desktop connections on a different port than the default, preferably port 21 so you can use that permanently, without the need of your school login/password. I consider this an advantage over the http/https tunnels. It's entirely up to you which one you prefer.

    Hi,

    The problem with proxpn is that on the free version it give s amax speed of 100kbits/s, which is too low for my needs. The premium packages offer more speed but I really don't have that kind of money right now.

    So, how do I make this http/https tunneling thing work?

    Also, will I be able to use this tunnelling with other SEO softwares that can't connect right now such as scrapebox and thebestspinner? :)

    You only need it to connect once to the VPS, then configure it to accept remote desktop connections on another port which is open. ( like FTP )

    Speed will not be limited then. Can you reach the VPS using proxpn temporarily so that you can configure it?

    Yes, you can send all traffic through it, so all applications will work without the need of configuring proxy servers.
    Still you need to reach that VPS somehow temporarily. We need to set it up to act as your outside gateway :)
    No worries, it's easy.
