Unhappy Http port forwarding

Hello all...

Okay... My school's IT admins are being $#@% and they've been tightening up rules... since I don't even know when. Things are getting worse and I can't even get on sites like fedora-forum/rb computing !!

Well, I tried tons of proxies, SSH-forwarding (my home computer as a server), (and now even sites like great-windmill doesn't work)..

A friend of mine suggested me of HTTP forwarding.. I am a real noob in networking.. Can anyone please help and explain to me how it works appx.? Thanks

(Please note - I think he blocked port scans too.. no matter how I use nmap and zenmap all ports are filtered...!@#$)

-Please ignore the penguin lol... I am running opera 10 fedora 13

Re: Http port forwarding

Can you try to appeal to either the IT guys or failing that, the administration? Mind you, if they've already fingered you as the guy/gal who nmapped their box, they may no be too amenable to your pleas.

It's their system and your internet hobbies may have to wait till you get home.

One of the most ingenious setups I have recently seen from a friend in a similar position (very tight security, he works for a mobile carrier): an OpenVPN server on a jump point and two OpenVPN clients - one in his office, one at his home where the proxy lives plus UDP-only transport... it did the job :-)
