Posted:Actually the only reason they blocked it is because chat is apparently insecure and they dont want any virus stuff on the network.
So I'm still allowed PMs!!!!!!

Posted:Surely a firewall ( that a school really ought to have) owuld prevent anything dangerous to the system out.

Or is that my techno-rubbishness getting the better of me again?

And if you are reading them on the schools computer, a PM will still be as insecure as the chat room!

confused

sounds like an excuse to get you to stop to me!

Posted:what's insecure about a pure html chatroom?

if "It will give us virii!" is the best excuse they can come up with then feel free to get your admin to email me. I wrote and host the chat, using it will not give you virii, the way its written means you download no software to use it/it will work through most firewalls that ban chat.

Posted:Thanks a lot flid i really appreciate it but you dont know my admin!! They will never let anyone talk them into stepping back as they are (of course) 'better than everyone' and 'know best'. I dont understand why they banned HoP chat as i had been using it for ages before and then they suddenly got rid of it! Apparently what they have dont is put some kind of redirection on the webpage which takes me to the 'The page cannot be displayed
There is a problem with the page you are trying to reach and it cannot be displayed. '
However all the links that come with that page such as 'refresh' are not links and are just plain text! This probably means that they have just copied and pasted that page...
If you can do anything to help then please do! I miss the HoP family! ubbcrying
Can you do something?

Posted:how rude

it was actually at boarding school almost 10 years ago that i started network programming/using the internet and taught myself about tunnelling/firewall penetration etc. We didn't have a 24/7 internet connection back then (it was on for a few hours every now and then), so i had to automate things. There's ways round lots of things, but it depends on whether you want to be suspended or not for taking the piss/tormenting your admin (mine threatened to resign because of me, after i was almost suspended and given as punishment to write a document on how the network could be improved/highlighted how insecure it was/how incompetant he was ubbangel).

The best way to do get webpages, as ucof mentioned, is http tunnelling. Tunnels are where you create one connection, then pass other connections through it. But for tunnels you need an endpoint, and free ones are either crappy or illegal (ie badly configured machines which socially inept kiddies have found). You could learn basic linux/unix and get a cheap shell in ths us and use ssh tunneling (you can get shells for a couple of quid a month) for webpages, irc etc, if ssh is allowed through your firewall. It's pretty basic to set up/the software is free. If you had a shell thou you could use an irc client on the machine and not bother with a web browser.

I don't encourage breaking rules btw, exploiting holes in rules in such a way that no damage is done though is all good fun.

If you admin is banning things on a website to website basis, why do you keep getting caught? In the meantime, you can use this link here and it will get you the chat. Don't get it banned! tongue
