After a long time a good proxy software has forced me to write about proxy related stuff, this one is called Ultrasurf which is best tunneling software I have used till now.

Ultra surf is a easy to use proxy software, as there is no need to install it, just double click the program exe to start it and it auto configures the Internet Explorer and start it also with a home page as Google search in Japanese language.

What you can do with Ultrasurf
  • You can access any website form your office, college or from anywhere you want irrespective of the security policy and blocking method.
  • You can access blocked or restricted Orkut, facebook or any site with proxy but without using any proxy servers for free.
  • You can also download any thing from any where irrespective of the download limitations set over your network.
  • As you can see in the image below, you can select in between three proxy servers to connect for opening blocked sites with Ultrasurf.
  • You can check the check boxes under preferred as shown in the image above for different proxy servers.
Other good to use features of Ultrasurf includes the following:
  • Close IE automatically with Ultrasurf exit.
  • Set IE proxy automatically.
  • Delete history automatically when program exit.

If you have any problem in using Ultrasurf, please let us know through your comments, I would love to help you.

  3. Hi Arun

    I write to you on behalf of The Viewspaper ( which is India's largest youth paper and the 5th largest media company on Facebook.

    We are organizing the World's Largest Tweet-A-Thon! and would like to invite you as a panelist for the same.

    From American political journalists in the 1950s, to The Economist magazine not so long ago; speculation has run rife about India and whether we will survive as a nation.

    Poverty. Corruption. Terrorism. Disease. Currency woes. We’ve got it all, and more. We’ve been written off, doomsdayed, delegitimized – but we keep coming back! What is the root of this appetite for adversity, this solid resilience?

    It is our nation’s optimism. No matter how much you bring her down, India feels up!

    A first of its kind initiative, the #IFeelUp Tweetathon is a 3-day virtual conference, which delights in the irrepressible state of the nation, in spite of its laundry list of issues. Over 72 hours, we’ll be bringing in 400 panelists for non-stop discussion, and that’s where you come in.

    We would like to invite you as a panelist for a 30 minute session wherein you can participate from any part of the world.

    If you're interested, kindly email us your contact information so that we could provide you with more details about the event.

    I look forward to hearing from you.Please mail us at
