How to bypass fortinet fortiguard web filtering??

So umm my college has blacklisted quite a few websites and apps so as to promote productivity and a studious environment. They are using fortinet for this task.

Unfortunately this also includes steam, epic games and even the riot client. I cannot access any of them and cant play any games on my dorm wifi. I was hoping to gain help for bypassing this even if its just for steam epic and riot. I can always use my mobile data connection to access the other websites but playing valorant on mobile data hotspot leads to ridiculously high ping in the neighborhood of like 150-250 ms. Can anyone help with this??

keep in mind I am not an expert or even well versed in networking so please treat me like your parents when trying to explain how things work or how to go about trying to bypass this.


Hello Masanseti,


you would have to access the FortiGate for that with a reasonable admin account and change the web filtering policy (or DNS filter, if that is in place). If you have no access, that will be difficult or impossible to bypass. That is probably the intention of the network admin.


Best regards,





I totally understand your frustration with the college's web filtering on Fortinet. It can be a bummer when it blocks websites and apps that you want to use, especially for gaming. I'm not an expert either, but I can offer some suggestions that might help. Some people have had success using a VPN to bypass web filtering. Just be aware that some colleges may not allow this and you should check their policies first. Also, you can check out online casino reviews before you use your mobile data, if you're looking for a way to pass the time while you're stuck with high ping. Keep in mind that fair go casino australia login could be one of the best options for you. Good luck, and hope you can find a way to access the games you want to play!
