Advice

  • You can type the website's IP address into your browser's address bar to open that website. Sometimes this will bypass parental controls or some filters on the network.
  • Although not all websites allow you to view their IP addresses, using the "traceroute" command instead of the "ping" command will prevent many websites from displaying the wrong address.
