Proxy Servers

Postby sportsguy138 » Wed Dec 13, 2006 7:16 pm

On Yahoo sports there's this thing where you can watch a few hockey games a week on the site, the only thing is that you have to be in the US for you to be able to. So I heard that you could use Proxy Servers for this. Has anyone ever used them before? If so, this doesn't screw up your computer in any way does it? Help is appreciated.. ;-D

One of my first ever posts here was deleted because I posted a link to a proxy server for someone asking for a way to get around an office block. :*)

Sounds a little fishy. Not saying that it's infringement or anything, but and ISP wound terminate service for something like that. Keep that in mind.

What do you exactly mean by that?

I thought that this might put me in a bit of a situation. But I don't really know about how serious it is. I'm pretty bad with these sort of things, which is the reason why I posted this in the first place. :-D

Yeah, this is part of the reason why maintaining net neutrality is so important.

It's not illegal.......yet. Most likely will be down the line though, as the government is going to have no choice. There has to be a way to make people accountable for their actions. Pedophiles, online gambling, etc, etc, etc. Won't surprise me at all to see some major changes on the net in the future.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Proxy's won't be illegal..they are perfectly fine to use and the fact is its more secure then using your nomal internet providers servers.

Most businesses, from large corporations to small businesses use proxy servers for security purposes. It would be impossible to "police" the internet in a way that would allow some proxies while making others illegal. The costs and legislation involved would be insurmountable.

The Internet is globals and free; the United States could not regulate proxy servers without severely crippling Information Technology in general.
