Introduction: How to Get Pass BESS (blocking Wesites)

This instructable will alow you to get past BESS the annoying little dog that locks you from websites most of the time you need for school but sometimes to check your myspace or facebook....... (that was a long run-on)...... As i was saying heres how.......

Step 1: Codeen

Codeen is a really great site made by princeton (let them explain)

CoDeeN is an academic testbed Content Distribution Network (CDN) built on top of PlanetLab by the Network Systems Group at Princeton University. This testbed CDN consists of a network of high-performance proxy servers. Currently, proxy servers have been deployed on many PlanetLab nodes. These proxy servers behave both as request redirectors and server surrogates. They cooperate with each other and collectively provide a fast and robust web content delivery service to CoDeeN users.

What you need to do is
1. Go to any major search engine i.e. google, yahoo, msn and type in codeen.
a. i used google
2. the first one is usually your choice. click it.

Step 2: Nodes

You now need to click on the one that is purple.... {many PlanetLab nodes}
it will then take you to a site with lots of numbers......

Step 3: IP Adressess

What i boxed in red are the only columns you need to look at. the green boxed is the one i'm going to use in this instructable.

Step 4: Tools

Click options and a menu will show up.
Then click the advanced tab-- the one that looks like the spokes from a wheel. then click the network tab and finally click the settings button.

Step 5: Proxy Configuration.

After clicking settings another menu shows up. Click the manual proxy configuration button.

heres where you need to go back to codeen in a completely new window or tab (see steps 1-3).

look for an ip address that reads good next to it.

The port can either be 3128 or 3124 but it has to be one of those. whichever one works better.
i used the first one in the green box.

Step 6: YAY! You Are Now Ready to Go to Any Page Without Bess Blocking You.

YAY! You are now ready to go to any page without bess blocking you. Lets go to myspace.
First go to tools then options then click on the main tab. then set your home page to www.myspace.com now press ok to exit all the menus. Now simply press the home icon on your tool
bar to go to myspace. YAY! we are on myspace now. but codeen wont let you get through. but never fear
I'm here......

Type in your email and your password but do not click login!!!!

Step 7: Backtrack

Go back to step four and where i told you to click manual proxy configuration and now click direct connection to the internet. now press ok to exit all of the menus and now you may click login.

The bess screen will pop up. now repeat step 4 and now bullet the bubble manual proxy configuration. Then press ok to exit all the menus.

Then press the home button.

Step 8: Almost There

You are almost there. If you followed my steps correctly this screen should show up. Notice there is no place for you to login on. Thats a good sign now all you have to do is click home via the myspace page.

    If you have access to regedit*, you should be able to disable/enable (among other things) BESS on a machine by machine basis. I would suggest using this only after the method in this instructable has been exhausted. Since I haven't been in high school since 2003, I don't remember what keys to edit, but the Windows registry is surprisingly intuitive, so it shouldn't be difficult to figure out.

    • Click "start", click "run" and type regedit and press "enter"

    P.S. If your network uses Novel NetWare, there are other things you should look for in the registry. Things to increase your fun.

    I know it's a few years too late.. but BESS doesn't run on the local machine.. there's nothing to disable in the registry. This particular filter runs at the campus/building firewall and gets everything coming in before it even hits the machine.

    girrrrrrrr2 im sorry but ur school suks really what do u guys do to have them block literally evrything!?

    CIPA. Children's Internet Protection Act. Schools have some blocks that are legally required.

    lol, in mine they where
    so i added an autorun feature
    and using visual basic coding
    ran the usb drive as though it where a cd
    (i created a cd type variable, then used autorun to run it)
    windows automatically runs autorun type files, then because it was usb type it was denied
    but i had it as cd type
    so i cud still use my usb drive =p

    You can do the same thing in IE (or any browser). ie: tools>Internet Options>Lan Settings opera: tools>preference>advanced>network

    Great instructable, good information you explain everything in detail and it probably helps many people but I personally believe there must be easier ways (does BESS block proxies like phproxy? just put one on your home computer in an AMP and go to your computer from school (trough your browser) and work from there
