    browsing by IP and not FQDN

    HEy Guys,

    Was jsut thinking about browsing via IP and not FQDN even when clicking a link.

    For instance I will go to any site via the IP in the address bar. I will then click on a link to jump to another site or a section of the same site, is there a way that is will keep the IP address in there and not jump to FQDN?

    Hope you understand this :P

    Interesting question Cider.

    Anyhow hopefully in my slightly drunken state i hope that maybe this article from M$ may or probably may not help.

    Domain Browsing with TCP/IP and LMHOSTS Files

    I'm pretty sure i remember an Firefox addon that let you browse using the IP related addresse's.

    i'll try to dig up, but i'm most likely confusing it for something else.

    Hey TB, thanks for the article, Ill give it a read through.

    the reason I am wanting to know this is because we have web filtering that blocks only on FQDN. They can still get to sites Via the IP. However when trying to browse from there it changes to DN instead of staying on IP.

    Thanks.

    Hey Cider, are you trying to bypass the content filter, or strengthen it?

    You might give Untangle a look. It is free. untangle.com
