What should you do? You should adhere to their security policies, it's their network, not yours.

If you have another linuxmachine outside your university you could use that via an ssh-tunnel or some vpn-solution to circonvent the universities firewall completely.

they probably use squid to block you from those websites, the setting is in the server and you cant do anything but hacking that server !
if you hacked server and accessed to squid.conf let me know to give you other instruction !

Sorry, are you suggesting he hack into a server?? Seriously?? Your answer suggests you have a really really bad knowledge of the factors involved, and I'd advise you not to ever advocate things like this if you wish to remain a member of this site.

I don't understand why what I said could be seen as childish in the slightest, unlike apparent "jokes" about hacking servers, which is extremely childish. Either way, please don't joke about things like that as humour can very easily be lost once it's written down.

You think what you like. Thread closed as it's clearly not going to improve. I would advise the OP to post a new thread normally, but given the question, it is not really appropriate anyway.
