i wish i knew too
what do you mean, "pass bess"?
Bess is one of those "family filter" things they usually employ at schools...they use it to try and prevent minors from looking at porn and other stuff deemed unsuitable for students. The problem with Bess is, it blocks out pretty much anything, even stuff that doesn't really need to be filtered.
Here is Bess
But I take it you don't want the program, but a way to 'trick' it. It is obviously installed for a reason, so live with it
2 years ago when my high school was using Netscape, they were on a proxy and only the proxy was filtered. All we did was go into netscape and change the proxy to something else but left it port 80 and it would work fine and we could surf the net. We would d/l napster and crap like that. lol. Now I'm in 12th grade and I dont need their sticken connection at school, i got my own dedicated cable line at home w/ tons of computers. lol.
We have Bess at our school and it's pretty much useless, I just take off the proxy server and weee!
My classmates were like: "How the hell did you do that?"
It wasn't difficult
Our school turned off Bess this year. I never use the schools computers though. And when I did, it was just to play Minsesweeper/Solitaire.
At shcool, they don't allow ANY personal browsing. All for "research". I'd like to see statistics of the percent of the web that has useful information on it. I would doubt it would be a single percentage point. Don't they know the net is for fun? And they can browse through everyone's history to check what kids are looking at.
i never used bess but try this
use a proxy
start > control panel > add / remove > bess
ctrl - alt - del
close it from taskbar
*NOTE* i am not responsable for anything you do by removing bess or anything that you do with the infomation in this post
I'm assuming he'd get in some major shit if he completely removed Bess. Just getting around it is probably all he wants.
Bess would be good if it wasn't too hardcore in the stuff it filters. I had to do a research paper on card games for an English project, and I couldn't do research at the school cause Bess filtered anything to do with cards and card games because some people feel cards are a tool of the devil.
When i removed our net nanny program ... the IT teacher saw me do it ... and did nothing ..... but thats cos it only removes it for my account ...
I also enabled "remote access" so i could access my space on my account , for information purfoses oviously :devious2:
i was looking for some proxies, and i found a huge list. try one of these:
(not all may work)
no way man
He can't do that, he has foolproof. It stops him from deleting things man. This is a smart school. We need a web site. That anonymous number thing is crap we tried everything.
I'm just a messenger
Say HERE GIRL!!
Pet her head, stroke her coat.
Coo at her.
Rub her projection of a mouth/nose.
Throw a bone a LONG distance and watch her run!
My school has something that blocks "naughty" words in URL's, so we just use http://www.megaproxy.com (used to use safeweb.com) and get through
