Cool Firewall Problems


Hey there !

I have just reinstalled gentoo after long time I did not have time to use it and I even appreciate more than before !


I am connecting through an Ethernet cable to the network.
I would like to know if there is a program or a line code that could allow me to bypass a remote firewall. I would like to know if it's possible to make in order that all my packets sent to the firewall are interpreted as some basic Internet surfing. so I can at least emerge -uD world my PC.

I have read somewhere that tinyproxy is an easy way to do it ?
Is it possible to make that all the ports used by any application are considered as some basic :80

If there is an easy solution I would be really great full to know it !
If you need any more information on my system and how I have configured it I'll be glad to make it know to you.

Thanks in advance !


Have a good day/evening.

if emerge allows you to specify the mirrors you want the downloads to occur from, then wouldn't you achieve your objective by using only HTTP mirrors?? by doing it like that, you wouldn't be circumventing your firewall's security, and you wouldn't be violating LQ rules, something which this thread is very close to doing...
