How to Open or Access Blocked Websites at Schools, Colleges and Office

Access Blocked
In this world, almost every place has the internet access. But in some places we use internet with some restrictions like schools, colleges and offices etc. i.e. they will block some websites like orkut, facebook, twitter in order to maintain the discipline among the students. In order to access the blocked websites, here we provide the tips.

Instead of using website URL, use IP address 
 
In schools, colleges and offices, they use software to block which mostly blocks the websites only rather than IP address. For example www.twitter.com etc. so we can use IP address to unblock the blocked website. Each and every websites has its own IP address. If you want to know the IP address of the particular website, you have to do the following process.

Run->command Prompt-> type “ping domain.com”

Instead of typing Domain, type the Website that you want to know the IP address. For example ping facebook.com. Then the IP address will be displayed. Just type and run the IP address.

Use Proxy manually in Browser
 
Most of the browsers support the proxy IP addresses manually. You can access the Blocked websites and browse whatever you want. There are so many proxies are available in internet itself. So you can get it through internet.

By setting manual Proxy using Mozilla Firefox
 
Ø Firefox browser-> option->advance network tab->connection settings

Ø Manual proxy settings window will open-> enter proxy address-> save

Ø If your computer won’t support the Proxy, you can use the alternative one.


Redirect the Blocked website with URL Shorten Service
 
URL shortner site is used to convert Long URL to Short one. But this site tends to go through the security settings. Tiny URL, MooURL URL are the shortner sites.

Use VPN software 
 
VPN software is available on both free and paid versions. It allows you to surf enormously, by just downloading the software and installing it on computer. Some of the VPN software’s are listed below.

Ø ProxyXPN

Ø Hotspot

Ø Tunnel

Browse using TOR browser
 
Except the social websites (facebook, twitter.) you can access the remaining blocked websites. In social websites you have to save the cookies. So can’t access it. TOR browser is used to hide the online identity.

Use Decimal Code
 
We know the method to unblock the website by using IP address. Suppose the software is not accessed by using the IP address, we can use the decimal code. It is a simple method as same as the first method. When the IP address is displayed you have to convert it to decimal value.

Use Hola extension
 
Hola extension is a browser which is available in all browsers. It is used to surf internet more. You can download hola in the hola’s official website itself.

How to Connect All your Computers with Single Mouse and Keyboard

KVM Switch
Nowadays it’s a common thing having multiple Systems in their home like a Desktop and a laptop, Even there are a lot of people who work with two or say multiple desktop computers and its hectic to work with two mouse and two keyboards, Did you ever heard that we can actually operate multiple computers using a Single mouse and keyboard? Yes that’s possible using various methods, So here are a few methods which we can try to overcome that.

This can be done through hardware and software either ways but the important thing is the computers should be connected to each other via LAN or any Network connector.

1. KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch, its hardware or say a cable in specific which will be a short one for keyboard, video and mouse. These are actually commonly used in Datacenters where lot of servers are placed in a single rack with a single keyboard, monitor and mouse. It will let you share a single mouse, keyboard and monitor across two or multiple computers. There is also KM switch cables using which you will be able to share a single keyboard and mouse with two computers that have two separate monitors. The best thing about using these hardware cables is they give really fast connections which makes it worth to go and makes the work more efficient. One of the main advantage of using KVM switch is that it saves space which would have been occupied if multiple keyboards, mouse are used.

2. If you don’t want to add any hardware cables there are a few software’s too which we can try, First thing to try out is Input Director, which is a Windows-only utility that’s easy to install and is totally free for non-commercial use. At first, you need to install this Input Director program on all your Computers. The computer that is physically connected by keyboard and mouse becomes the Master computer whereas the other systems will be Slave computers. Just make sure you never shut down the Master computer without turning off the Slave computers first because by doing that you will lose access to the keyboard and mouse which are physically attached to the master computer. There`s another program called Synergy , this one is a bit harder to setup than Input Director , but it’s free and a open-source thing which supports Microsoft windows, MAC OS and Linux. Both these programs are small ones which won’t eat up much resource your computers. On using both the software’s you don’t need to press any switches or buttons which was there in the case of KVM switches. Simply just move your cursor to drag drop or copy paste across your multiple computers in a easy manner. 

People who don’t mind spending for a peaceful computing will love to go for the hardware way and the Users who don’t like to spend money and want a clean desk without messing with cables will go the software way. Happy Computing.
