There are several links placed on the right-hand sidebar, in the section “Net tools”, that point out several ways of using proxies to get around censorship filters. Note: proxies do not work if the site you want to visit is under attack by d-dos (denial of service). Proxies are useful when you need to be anonymous, by hiding the IP (Internet address) you get when you connect to Steamyx, TM Net, Jaring, Celcom, Maxis, etc. You must also learn to turn off Javascript and Java. Using proxies usually results in slower browsing, depending on the proxy server. Stay safe.

Here are some ways to get around the block on Malaysia Today via anonymous proxy server. Bookmark and use in case of difficulty as the authorities seemed to have put blocks in place. These links worked after 18:00MYT Sunday, some worked only intermittently at best before 6pm. You might have better luck, depending on your ISP.

      Yes, thanks. Those are the DNS servers at OpenDNS that anyone could use on your own PC or your broadband router. The http proxies might be useful for those not on their own machines or those wary of fiddling with network properties.

      I have been using OpenDNS for some time now. That did not protect my access when the server was effectively blocked by DoS attack.

      I read that MT was migrating to another ISP with better DoS protection. Anyone know anything about this?
