I’ve just changed a department and was surprised by more strict corporate rules applied to my windows account.More blogs and sites became totally unreachable because of the corporate firewall.
So to continue productive work I rolled out the following setup:
1. Second LAN connection through iPhone 3gs’ wired hotspot established.
2. Second palemoon
(a firefox fork) profile created (named backdoor).
3. Second palemoon profile was assigned a different theme (and a different icon by AutoHotkey script that will be covered in the following posts).
4. A shortcut was made that binds second palemoon instance (with ‘backdoor’ profile) to specific LAN interface using a ForceBindIP
C:WindowsSysWOW64ForceBindIP.exe 127.0.0.1 "C:Program Files (x86)Pale Moonpalemoon.exe" dummy -p backdoor -no-remote
The dummy argument is used because of the feature of the ForceBind utitlity: it does not pass the first given parameter to the program specified.
Given IP should be replaced with actual ip-address of the second LAN interface.
Now I can surf through unblocked sites through a corporate LAN and access restricted ones through an iPhone hotspot.
