    Hey, I have recently started using my schools open wireless network on my ipod.
    My problem is that I have to enter a proxy to login to the network wich is also filtered.
    None of my apps work on the internet such as the facebook or youtube app, I know that this is the schools firewall blocking it but I want to know how I could circumvent this?
    Since I need to have the school proxy entered to access the net I would probably have to have something set up at home to make this work.
    Perhaps a Vpn??
    If anyone could suggest anything that could work I would be very grateful.

    Why do you need to enter a proxy in the first place?
    If it's an open network... :s

    Well If I don't enter the proxy I can connect to the connection just not to the internet :S

    When you're "connected" do you see the internet strength guide (whatever it may be called lol) at the top left on the ipod confirming you have a connection?..

    EDIT: I think perhaps you have a wifi connection in your school but its protected from use of students, as only the various computers in the school should be able to have access. My school does this since everyone was using up the schools bandwith and such..lol

    i have this. The school blocks certain websites.


    Go to

    Settings -> Network -> "You schools wifi" -> Then scroll down to Proxy

    Select Manual

    then go here and put one of those in

    http://www.proxy4free.com/page1.html


    eg. 200.30.101.2 8080 you would put 200.30.101.2 as the adress and 8080 in the port.

    That SHOULD get through the proxy the school is using.



    Also little tip, add .6a.nl to the end of any adress and it will let you through.

    EG. www.youtube.com.6a.nl

    have fun

    You can connect to the connection but you have to have the proxy to get to the internet.

    If you don't have the proxy, just go to a PC that gets on the internet. Open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, connections, lan settings, and you should see the proxy you need at the bottom of the window. Put that in the proxy on your Touch and you should be good to go.

    You probably still won't be able to hit any of the sites that are blocked. If you can't get to it on a PC on this network, then you won't get it on your Touch.
