Bypass the corporate proxy

I worked for 12 years at corporations and I’ve seen it all. One of the worst inventions was the corporate HTTP proxy, which is introduced with good intentions — to harden the company’s security position, to monitor your activities, to block data exfiltration and so on.

In this post I’ll show you how to bypass the proxy to gain unfettered Internet access without censoring. I’ll also cover some of the common issues such as blocked ports, LDAP authentication and tools of the trade.
