Cyberroam Tricks Part 1

Most of the colleges or Offices have Cyberroam to restrict user from accessing certain websites. This can also be used to limit the speed of your Internet. I am in college and My college installed Cyberroam when I was in 2nd year of my Engineering. Every sem they introduce something to put limitation on us and everytime we had to find something to bypass that limitation.

I will mention all the limitation that our college has put on us and how to overcome that limitation.

1. The very first one was when we had to enter username and password provided by the college after regular interval which was very annoying. I got automatically solved. I don't know. I guess college professor found the option in cyberroam which was causing this. But there was a time when If we remove the LAN wire (cross cable) from laptop without logging out then It will not work on your laptop for certain amount of time. Then you will have to insert into someone's other laptop and then again insert it into your laptop and then It will work. If something like this happens to you then the very basic solution to this problem is to renew your IP address assigned to you. You can do this by executing the following commands in command prompt.

ipconfig /release

and then this command

ipconfig /renew

Now you will be able to see the cyberroam login page where you can login and use the internet. This happened with us a lot in a semester as in hostel the mostly the lan wire was damaged so even If we move the laptop a little the lan wire got removed from the laptop accidently and the internet would stop workign and I had to run these commands to make it run again.

2. The second problem I faced due to cyberroam was that I was unable to download anything from torrent. uTorrent didn't work. Then we found a solution to this problem also. Now the solution is very simple. Goto Options menu (ALT + O) in utorrent and then Preferences, then select Bittorrent in the list given on the left side. Now you will see a option named in Protocol Encyption in the right side. There will be 3 values. Select Forced. and click on OK. Now your utorrent will work even in cyberroam. Now the main problem was to get the torrent file. All the torrent websites were blocked so we were unable to download any utorrent file. One simple solution to me right now is to go to katmirror.com which is a copy of kat.ph which is not blocked here at my college. So I can download torrents from this website.

The solutions to cyberroam will continued in the next blog. I will provide more solution to the problem mentioned above by telling your how to use proxifier. So Stay tuned. Enjoy.!!!
