Simple Proxy Trick

So the network administrator has been mean enough to ban your favorite sites in your office, school, hostel or even the entire country? You can tell them now Internet has no place for censorship.

First I heard that new government in Thailand has banned Youtube.com, and a fellow blogger Earl-Ku has confirmed that his blog is not accessible from China. What the hell is wrong with these people in power?

If my previous post about tor and privoxy was too much of hassle for you, read on and I have a simpler way for you to bypass unreasonable website blocking.

Thanks to the big daddies on the Internet, they are offering wonderful services for free. For example, Google Language Tools and Yahoo! Babel Fish. These online translator tools are well known to everyone, but you haven’t seen the hidden beauty of them.

For instance, my blog is in English. Can you translate it to other languages? Of course you can! By doing so in google, you are actually request from this URL http://64.233.179.104/, instead of http://www.nixser.com/. Get the idea? It doesn’t matter if your network blocks nixser.com or not as long as google is able to pull data from it, so a locally blocked site is practically still accessible.

Now reverse the trick, what if we translate the site from Chinese to English. Refer to the links below.

Google Translate.
http://64.233.179.104/translate_c?langpair=zh%7Cen&u=http://www.nixser.com/

Yahoo! Babel Fish
http://babelfish. yahoo.com/translate_url?doit=done&tt=url&intl=1&fr=bf-home& trurl=http://www.nixser.com&lp=zt_en&btnTrUrl=Translate

Notice any difference? You can simply replace “http://www.nixser.com” with any other URL for a fast result. Happy surfing guys! Remember, Internet is virtually the last free soil on the planet, say no to censorship, but behave yourself when something naughty is going on!
