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 :
- Use the mobile browser skyfire to unblock websites. Check out this post for more details.
- Finally with high demand, I have uploaded the files to rapidshare server. Download pagemod and ultrasurf from rapidshare. So unblock the blocked world. Cheers.
- You can use fring to unblock orkut and facebook and browse it on mobile. Read this article for more details.
- 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

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.

- 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.
- 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.
