Website unblocker with minimal/no download limit?

I use my school internet, and though it is very fast, unfortunately they block any downloads above a small number of MBs. It's like winning a hummer and not being able to afford the fuel. I have tried using many website unblockers, but they all have very restricting download limits.

Quote:
Resource Error: An error has occured while trying to browse through the proxy.
The file your are attempting to download is too large.
Maxiumum permissible file size is 0.20 MB
Requested file size is 205.67 MB


This message, give or take some wording, comes up every single time.

Can anyone tell me how I can download large files?

I'd work within the system to change the system rather than try to circumvent it.

Keep a record of what you were searching for/ trying to download and the message you recieved.

once you have a substantial list present it to the school. petition the web master to allow priveleged access.

How do you think they keep it fast?

Yea I'll give it a go. He's a good guy, but the problem is most of my downloads are for games, and his boss isn't too understanding.

can you download directly to something? Like a CD or disk and get around the limit?

It might be that there is just no downloading to their computer hardware , but no limits on removable storage space..

It's likely a measure meant to protect their network from being used for copyright infringement and maintain network capacity and he's not going to get them to turn it off. The idea is that they want to provide the connections for research (i.e. text) and not downloading music, videos and games.

Depending on how the network is configured you don't have a realistic way around it (except using a different connection, of course) either.

No, no, it's definitely a download limit, regardless of what I'm downloading to.

I'm actually using their internet on my home computer. Don't ask me how - it's a long story. I'll probably just have to try to talk to the web master. I'm mainly using it at night when no-one is using their computers anyway, so it's not like I'm slowing down anyone else.

@aperson,
Yay I solved the problem! I'm using a downloading application, Trustable Downloader, to get past the firewalls! Woop woop!

@aperson,
See this is what I don't get about the new a2k. Why would somebody vote this topic down?? I just don't know.

@aperson,
What about torrents? Many small dl's coming from different sources. Are those blocked as well?

@Cycloptichorn,
Yes, but that is to do with the billion firewalls rather than with the download limit.

@aperson,
What is this? Does everyone here have tall poppy syndrome or something? Do people just randomly vote topics down? Why? Because they're not useful to them? So what? They might be useful to other people!(?) It's no reason to vote a topic down.

I only vote posts down if they are unneccessarily offensive. Does everyone else cut people down just for the sake of it?

@aperson,
What are you going on about? If you want to have a popular thread, then post a goddamn popular thread.

@Ticomaya,
Then why don't I bloody post some mindless crap on the merits of porn and see how I go?? I'm not annoyed that people don't vote it up, just annoyed that people vote it down, because there's no REASON!

@aperson,
Sure there is, your annoying whining about other people's votes is reason enough to vote you down.

@Robert Gentel,
So AFTER being voted down I am not entitled to whine on penalty of being further voted down...?

@aperson,
Of course you are, and the people who find it annoying are "entitled" to keep voting you down.
