Unblock Orkut and Other blocked sites with small tricks

Updated : feb 15′ 2009.
This article is updated whenever i find a new trick or new site which is trying to help surfers unblock the web world.

Most of us might be knowing that UAE ISP Etisalat, has blocked the highly popular social community Orkut. Well, I got many mails from people asking me help for unblocking orkut. Well here are some of the techniques which may be helpful :

  1. Use the mobile browser skyfire to unblock websites. Check out this post for more details.
  2. Finally with high demand, I have uploaded the files to rapidshare server. Download pagemod and ultrasurf from rapidshare. So unblock the blocked world. Cheers.
  3. You can use fring to unblock orkut and facebook and browse it on mobile. Read this article for more details.
  4. With file size less than 200kb Ultrasurf to the rescue. Great option to browse sites at office. Bypass the Etisalat ban on any site. Works excellent even when you are accessing it in office. Download link will not work at UAE becoz Etisalat has blocked the site. You have to download it using some proxy site(updated proxy websites link). 100% working method. So guys just ask your friend to sent it to you thru email attachment if the original site is blocked for downloading ultrasurf
  5. Ajay – a frequent commenter at this blog writes about the latest pagemod proxy websites. Have a look here.
  6. Download the pagemod standalone zip file. Since the site is blocked you can download it here. You need to open the html file included in mozilla firefox browser, then only it will work fine. If you are visiting this site on internet explorer you can download firefox from the link at the top else you can download it from the link at second point.
    There will be a box in the html file, where you can type the website address and hence unblock any website. Enjoy unblocking.
  7. You can browse website without having to visit a proxy site. You can find many proxy sites at point 9 in this post. You can download firefox by referral link at the top of this page (you will be able to see the link only in Internet Explorer) and download a add search to toolbar extension from here. This will add the proxy websites search box on your browser and hence you need not visit the proxy website. You can read about it more here at my post.
  8. Go to this webblog post by ashwin , which will guide you through VPN connection to get to the blocked website. Its very easy and wont take much of your time.
  9. Powerscrap.com – best alternative if not blocked.
  10. Till now you must have been aware of pagemod.com , pmoder.info , smex.in . These are the best proxies to browse orkut. Now they have come up with very innovative solution if any proxy is blocked at your place. Just add pagemod(underscore)helpdesk@yahoo.com in yahoo messenger and pagemod(at)gmail(dot)com at google talk messenger , and you can have live chat with the support, which will help you in unblocking proxies. You can also mail at report(at)pagemod(dot)com about any blockage. (please note that the words in brackets denote symbols. (underscore) means “_” and (at) means @ and (dot) means “.” ). Happy unblocking with pagemod.
  11. Opera mini simulator can help. Just visit this link of opera mini simulaor and get access of any blocked website.
  12. Go to download.com or softpedia.com and you can search for softwares by keywords “anonymous browsers”. You will get many softwares and toolbars (annonymous surfing, annonymous friend at Softpedia) which will have the capability to route your data through other country server like China, Indonesia etc etc. Click here for results from download.com . You may find some software like ghost surfing which will be able to help you.
  13. Specially for UAE – We all know now there are two service providers. DU and Etisalat. Orkut is blocked by Etisalat … But what about DU ?? Yeah , orkut and so many other sites are not blocked by DU , hence if you a have a DU connection and a 3g or GPRS enabled mobile phone, you can connect to orkut through your mobile phone , or by connecting your DU mobile phone to your computer, by using it as a modem. How to connect Du mobile to computer ?? Just check it here at this article. I tried with DU and was able to open orkut etc. Connecting DU to computer could be a little bit costly on your pocket as mobile internet is charged by kbs downloaded and uploaded. 1fil/kb could be a bit costly.
  14. You can try changing the normal proxy on your browser provided by the ISP. Before changing the proxy you should write or save the original proxy because if nothing worked then you may have to change it back to the orginal one. Be aware that these proxy doest not works with dial up connection in IE, hence if you are using IE , you should to be sure that you are having a broadband connection. Click here for the list of proxy’s you can try using. Just go to Internet options in tools menu –>> Connections–>> Lan Settings —>> Check the Use proxy checkbox —>> ( save any existing proxy ) —>> refer the list and enter the IP address in first box and the two or four digit port number (sepearted by : in the list ) in the box labeled port. This will divert your internet through the mentioned country proxy and hence may help you connect to the blocked site.
  15. If you are having a mobile phone which has unlimited gprs data connection or very cheap rate for data connection and the sites are not blocked by ISP ( Internet Service Provider ) but by your office or school , the you can use your mobile to connect it to the Internet and browse the websites using GPRS. Check out the article about how to connect mobile to browse internet on your computer.
  16. If at all you are running out of proxy sites , just subscribe to proxyannouncer.com , and it will send you 5 new proxy sites everyday on your email box. If this site is blocked, just use the other proxy sites provided in the top list to go to this website and browse. Also Proxy today.com will be able to provide you with list of latest proxies. You just need to subscribe to that :)
  17. Also you find great tips at this article at rediff.com . They also explores various possible ways used by surfers to unblock various websites. :)

These are the only possible ways to unblock any website as far as I know. If you are unable to browse the website through these then I doubt any other option is left for you ( there might be some other option which I am unaware of :( ). Do tell me with your comments whether you are able to succeed or not !!! Happy Unblocking :D . Moreover if you know any other way to unblock site !! Please do share it in Comments .

  1. well i have been using Torpark which was one of the best solutions …but since last 2 months etisalat guess figured a way to block dat as well. well the idea of getting DU is good but DU is only available in limited areas of Dubai. And im sure once DU is available widely they will also soon block just like Etisalat.

  2. Thanks for the mention.

    As for me, that VPN trick works out well and I started to use VOIP as well! D:

  3. @ashwin , Yeah VPN hotspot shield worked pretty well for me too, but as far as i feel , it works over a wireless connection, hence you need to have a wireless modem. My friends who had wired connection were not able to access, as they got the static message “waiting for connection”

    @rahul , DU network is available in whole UAE, but broadband is not available. Hence if you have a mobile phone , you can connect it to your computer and browse.

  4. ^^
    No exactly, I’m using this over our office Network connection and works without any issues.

  5. @ashwin ohh !! Really !! But when I tried to connect on wired network on two of my friends home .. it stayed on the page stating that “waiting for connection” . But when tried over the wireless connection , it connected pretty fast without any delay. Y such weird things happen with me :-(

  7. Yes, that’s what I thought in the beginning; it’s only for WiFi and US people, then one of my readers (in UAE) pointed out that this works fine in her PC, then I tried it out and worked over our office LAN. :D

  8. @ashwin, Me still having some problems over office lan connection :-( . over Wifi works perfect. :-) .. happy unblocking.

  9. Checked again !! Works Perfectly over wired !! cheers :-D

  15. @casanova .. Really sorry to say that once etisalat discover this , it will be blocked like other sites .. but we will have other solution by that time .. So enjoy :)
    Thanks for stopping by

    • hi
      how cAN i open orkut..in uae.have u any software

  16. Casanova

    “Really sorry to say that once etisalat discover this , it will be blocked like other sites :(

    i think they heard u :P its block again :( i hope u will find out something new waiting for another solution….thanks in advance

  17. @casanova , solution is already there. you just need to re-check ;) .. enjoy :twisted:

  18. Casanova

    u r faster than etisalat :P
    i think if u post the solution here they might see ? dunno abt it but i just feel like they might be checking this wat if this site also blocked :( anyway i think u have our email if u can send there also it will be good watever u think is good n easy for u….
    Thanks u r realy helpfull thanks a looooooooooot

  19. @casanova .. hmm well etisalat is not blocking sites through this , they block websites when they notice some good traffic moving into it without source. Coz these are proxy sites, quite possible they have some software to analyze the site based on the reqest generated by the website.
    This is just an assumption , not sure. Enjoy till it works , solution will alwayz be there. :grin:

  20. Casanova


    Thanks :grin:

  58. All of the modern firewalls filters like Websense can detect a proxy as soon as you connect to it. It’s actually incredibly trivial to do. The filtering software just tries to connect to the address in question. If it gets a response it’s a proxy and it’s then blocked. The only question is whether the system is set to auto block or if it emails or texts the admin and lets him do it manually, which can buy a few hours.

  59. Use this Website to unlock Bebo , MySpace, Facebook, Orkut, YouTube , Twitter, Hi5 and other gaming and social networking site from work and school.
