Doom9.org blocked at work (workarounds?)

I used to access to the forum from my work using ip adress because our stupids adminstrators block doom9.org domain (seems to be a Video & Hacking for them).
The forum could not be access anymore using my ip trick, so bad
Please, is there any solution to access to doom9 w/o doom9 in the url ??

Several web-sites (domains) might be hosted on the same server (i.e. identical IP address).

But when accessing the web-site directly via IP, your browser doesn't tell the server which domain it actually wants. That's why it won't work with some web-sites.

Solution: Use one of the various free web-proxies, if these aren't blocked too at your location.

Choose on of these:

(BTW: Edited your thread title to something more suitable. Please choose a proper title next time!)
There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment.
How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork.

Get a 1-2$ shared hosting account and install PHProxy on it : http://sourceforge.net/projects/poxy/ You could also go with free shared hosting like bplaced.com or .freehosting.com

It's a small php script, you enter the url you want to browse and it retrieves the page and sends it to you, with all the urls inside going through the proxy and encoded in base64 so that any firewall doesn't block it just by word filter.

You could also leave the computer running at home and use something like www.dyndns.com to create a virtual domain on your home computer, install apache and php and this script above on your pc and you're set. You'd just type something like http:// yourdomain . dyndns . com / proxy / .Saves the hassle of buying shared hosting and a domain just to browse a forum.

wow, poxy is so good, thank you very much
I installed it on my Freenas server, it seems to be the ultimate trick to bypass this boring security
FYI, the proxy is updated here : http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpr0xi/
