    Hi there.

    I do not think the following is in contrast to the board rules. If it is, please let me know.

    I am a very big WWE fan living in South Africa. Now the problem I have is that we don see all the WWE ads on tv and get to see what all you people in the states see.

    My problem is that there is som trailers from Wrestle mania 21 on the wwe website that I want to watch, but I can't Our proxy @ work blocks us. All I want to do is download the 3 or 4 video clips so that I can watch tem.

    I have been unable to do so.

    Can anyone Please help me.

    (PS I do not intend to redistribute or make profit out of the video clips.)

    It depends on how good your administrator is, there is sometimes a way around. I wouldn't however recommend breaking your work place security policies. If they are logging and they find out you could be in trouble.

    If you still wish to proceed, i suggest google. That way, no forum rules are broken
    A simpler way would be an internet cafe and a usb key / cdr ??

    how does your work proxy work? would simply using another proxy fix the problem?

    Step 1: Sign up on one of those free hosting sites you can access from work. Get one with PHP support (lots of posts about this on the site).
    Step 2: Write some PHP to download the wrestling stuff to a folder on your new site.
    Step 3: Download it from the site to your computer.

    Alternatively, sign up to a service like FreeDNS (as the name implies, it's free) and put in the IP address of the WWE server. Most proxys block you accessing sites using an IP, or based on the hostname, but who are they to know when you're using "economicsguide.freedns.net" or whatever the domain would be.

    Or for reuse, write the PHP in the original post but allow it to take the website as an argument, ie: biosninja.somefreeserver.com/sites.php?www.wwe.com.

    Then have it parse all files and prefix all hyperlinks with biosninja.somefreeserver.com/sites.php?.

    I wish I'd thought of all these a few months ago when I was at school!

    For some reason the edit button on my posts doesn't work.

    Anyway, number 2 won't work, I just remembered FreeDNS doesn't work like that. What you can do is sign up to get a free domain name like a .tk (www.dottk.tk I think?) or with CJB, and point it at the WWE site.

    Edit: now the silly button works. Some of these methods won't work great, like if they hardcode their links like "a href='http://www....', but if you already know the URL's to what you want to download they should all work fine.
