In this article i am gonna show you how you can access blocked sites.
The current trend in Universities and Organizations is that they block our internet access .They do so so that we don’t access unsuitable content, by mistake or intentionally.They can save their precious bandwidth behind this mask.But all of us have a right to access and enjoy internet to its fullest.Who are they to decide what we should access and what shouldn’t.We have download limits,torrents are blocked and so on.Most of us have probably used power.com or some other proxy to access blocked sites.But what about a file download or torrent?. Now here is the solution to access blocked sites.
To access blocked sites first you have to download a software which is called vidalia.
To get this software
Download linux version of this software if you have linux type operating system on your machine.
