Network administrators and computer owners often utilise filtering software like Websense and SmartFilter to prevent Internet users from having access to web pages that display inappropriate material, or websites that have an excessive traffic flow, use a lot of bandwidth, or are distracting such as Flash sites, which are interactive websites that display videos or animations. In the event that you must bypass Internet filters to access Flash sites, you can use proxy servers to access such websites.
- Skill level:
Go to the official Kproxy web page. Kproxy is free to use and commonly utilised by Internet users that need to gain access to otherwise restricted websites such as Flash sites. Kproxy also claims to work well with websites that are commonly blocked by educational institutions like Gmail and Facebook. Kproxy prevents your IP address from being seen while browsing, which ensures privacy protection.
Enter the URL for the Flash site being blocked into the blank text box that is located at the top of the page.
Click the "Surf!" button next the text box where you entered the Flash site's URL address, or hit the "Enter" button on your keyboard. Kproxy will now take you directly to the Flash site that was previously blocked.
Go to the official web page for VectroProxy. This particular proxy server web page allows you to browse the Internet at a quick pace for no charge, and prevents your IP address from being disclosed as well.
Enter the URL for the blocked Flash site into the empty text box where it says "Enter the Web Address."
Click on the "Browse!" tab located beside where you entered the blocked Flash site's URL. Wait momentarily while VectroProxy redirects you to the desired Flash site.
Visit the Vtunnel web page. This website allows you to bypass blocked websites, including Flash sites for no charge.
Enter the URL for the restricted Flash site into the blank text box located near the top of the Vtunnel website.
Click on "Begin browsing," located beside the text box. You will be redirected to the previously restricted Flash site.
