Picture of Getting Games at School
Say your teacher has blocked all game websites, what do you do? You hack!..er copy files! All you need is a computer at home, Firefox installed, and a file transfer method, cd/dvd-r, or flash drive. Here is the [http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.0.7&os=win〈=en-US link] if you do not already have Firefox, the best web browser known to man.

Step 1: Get your games!

Now that you have Firefox installed, you're ready to get your games. Go to a game website, i chose FreeWorldGroup. Select your game and wait for it to load.

Or do this.

Would this work with other browsers such as chrome or opera, or newer versions of Firefox?

Sandisk1duo (author)  Mutantflame3 years ago
Yes it would.
I have one question. Does this work when the two computers are different operating systems, so like, does it work when one computer is Windows, and the other is Mac?
as long as it has a flash player... and a HDD
it should work

you could also do this from NeverWrex
I'm not an expert with TCP/IP, but wouldn't the firewall be thwarted by using Firefox off of a flash drive? Then go through a good proxy in FF. This is because IE has been set up to block proxies at our school.
it depends; if the firewall is just a add on to ie then yes. if it is a actual firewall then no because it monitors all the http traffic which would be n e browser.
Thanks, I haven't had a chance to try it though. Summer is still here!

This wouldn't work on our pcs because we have three tech support guys who watch everything we do on our computers from their computers. they are like the biggest nerds in the world

if they monitor through the connection you could just unplug the ethernet cord and then they couldn't see

lol, just play the game off a memory stick or cd, don't transfer the files to hardrive

We watch for all new proxies and tunnels and block the ports they use, so any new 'way to get around a schools filter' may work for a while, but we usually find them in about a week or so. I know this cause I am a network admin at a school. If your school's IT dept is any good at all, the new ways will be blocked in no time at all.
yah; the only problem is that most IT people are blissfully unaware or unskilled and can't do much :-) im not saying all but the ones i know are less knowleageable then me
ha ha ha ha ha ha!! that made me laugh. a question for the masses... is it possible to block tor?
Yes. All we did was configure our IDS to recognize the protocol and block it.
Very interesting... tor is the only thing not blocked by my school. When ever something gets blocked, some kids in my CS class huddle over a computer and think about how to get passed it. The access controls at the school are fairly strong but we can get around it. We haz teh toolz.
Yes, I know all about the tools of the trade. I have used them (well when I was in school, things were a tad different in the 90's). But, yeah...it's part of my job to research different ways to get around the filters and stop it from happening. Most of the kids at my school/job do not like me! ;D
My CS class would like an FTP server and a dedicated unfirewalled network port. Would you be for or against this as a school IT person? (and yes the CS teacher is for it.)
It depends. I assume CS class is computer sciences. I would need to know what it is being used for, when it would be used (ie: I would have the port open during school hours only if it was for a class project/lesson) and how much bandwidth will be needed. If I monitor and start seeing huge files being xferred, then it would be quickly shut down unless there is a darn good excuse as to why most of our bandwidth is being used for a large file xfer. As soon as I see any 'questionable' files being sent or received, it would be shut down no matter what the excuse. Basically, if it starts to become a public repository for misc files, then it would be a no go. Just keep in mind that these rules are determined by a committee and not by me.

well now you know how us "kids" mess around in class
Ya, I noticed that they block sites after a while, I guess they can see commonly visited sites.

a flash drive is a lot more compact and inconspicuous than a CD...
Some schools are paranoid of flash drives containing viruses, so a CD would be much easier.
Sandisk1duo (author)  jongscx6 years ago
true, but i did not have a flash drive at the time

proxy servers make life so much easier!
Sandisk1duo (author)  Justin Lam7 years ago
ya, but you can't play any games off of them :(
I use an ssh tunnel from my server at home
But flash games are a waste of time. I go for stuff like HL2 and Morrowind
Lol, our computers would barely run half-life 1.
 lol, your school computers will take Source? Our do but.. Ouch, its a shameful sight.

Anyways, good one to start is Starcraft. Cs 1.5 (with The Specialists). Some good ol'Quake.

some schools block those websites
 ironic isn't it?

Another way that works without having to burn a disk is to make a personal wiki or blog from a free website like wikispaces, and then embed the games into it, or attach the game files to the page.
Sandisk1duo (author)  ben_k5 years ago
some schools block blogs too
or you could just go to vvd1.com
