Hai Friends !!

I browse da internet from a LAN through a proxy. Our administrator uses Squid 2.4 on a Linux machine as a proxy. Through squid he restricted da number of requests for a user to 5. So now v can open only 5 pages at a time.
Suppose no1 is connected to internet in da LAN. Even then i can open only 5 pages and couldnt utilise da net. I want to open more than 5 pages ie i want to override da property of squid.

So i feel some1 here can suggest me how 2 do this....its ok even if its a tricky one...

Awaiting 4 a +ve reply !!!!!!

with regards,
 n@v

If the site administrator has done his job properly you won't be able to override or bypass the restrictions enforced by the Squid proxy.

Jlevie,

I totally agree with you. Hence my asking for moderators to excuse me in advance.
I would not have allowed myself to do if I had thought that this "language" was not used on purpose.

I'm French, and I know how tought it is sometimes to write proper English.

To be honest, I expected if to be removed :-). No offense taken.

Ask your administrator to increase the request number. Any other answer would be breaking EE guidelines.

If the proxy is on a specific port and you choose to use it or not, you wouldn't ask this question.
If it is a transparent proxy which intercepts requests to port 80, the point is that you cannot bypass it.
So either way da question is pointless.
