Hello all,

First of all sorry - I had no idea where to put this post...

I was just looking at the tricks that many sharing websites can be used as premium account with cookies shared by others.
And was thinking if something similar can be done for websites like IEEE/Science Direct etc?

I tried searching for few min on google but nothing returned (I am still searching)... but if someone have any idea on that ... can please share it here?

What my line of thoughts were - to use the cookies from university at home... but I am not aware how all this stuff works... some help or hint will be appreciated...

Regards and Thanks,
electrojit

First of all, are you sure the university machines are authenticated using cookies?

I know that when I went to uni several of the journals and reference sites we had access to identified us using some sort of transparent process, possibly source IP. Any computer connected to the campus network could access the sites without authenticating, if you use the same system then there wouldn't be any way to duplicate that access elsewhere.

I think it would be a lot easier to just set up a machine on campus as a proxy, like this guy did:

"The indictment (.pdf)[ http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/threatlevel/2011/07/swartz_indictment.pdf ] accuses Swartz of repeatedly spoofing the MAC address an identifier that is usually static of his computer after MIT blocked his computer based on that number. Swartz also allegedly snuck an Acer laptop bought just for the downloading into a closet at MIT in order to get a persistent connection to the network."

http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2011/07/swartz-arrest/

Seems the USA feds have no sense of humor over someone downloading public domain papers from behind a paywall.

Swartz "killed himself" a few months later...

Yeah, assuming that it is set up like mine was that would be a solution, but if it does in fact use cookies then that won't work.

Really without knowing more about the setup it is hard to comment.

Hi Mike,

I am not sure what exactly they do... but guess you are ri8... I am not allowed to take laptop to our campus... Sad so can not validate it... but it seems more logical.

@Solutions: That is good idea... don't know if my country had any gr8 cyber laws and if IEEE or other such organization can influence the laws here... let me check if I can do it or not...

if you are seeking for how to use proxy to get access into university databases
Select Tools and then Internet Options.
Click the Connections tab.
If you are using a LAN, click the LAN Settings button. If you are using a Dial-up or Virtual Private Network connection, select the necessary connection and click the Settings button.
Make sure the 'automatically detect proxy settings' and 'use a proxy automatic configuration script' options are not checked.
In the 'Proxy Server' area, select the Use a proxy server for this connection or Use a proxy server for your LAN check box.
In the Address box, enter the address of the proxy server. In the Port box, type the port number. If need to use different proxies for different services, such as HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP, click the Advanced button, and then enter the individual proxy server addresses to use.
If necessary, enable the 'Bypass proxy server for local addresses' option.
Click OK.

He isn't talking about setting up a PC to use an existing proxy, he is talking about installing a proxy server on a PC within the university and then connecting to the proxy from outside the campus so that the traffic appears to be coming from the university.
