Ultra Surf - Best way to Unblock blocked sites like Orkut, youtube, Myspace, Facebook

It is the flagship software product from UltraReach Internet Corp. for Internet anti-censorship. It enables users inside countries with heavy Internet censorship to visit any public web sites in the world safely and freely. it enables users to browse any website freely just the same as using the regular IE browser while it automatically searches the highest speed proxy servers in the background.


UltraReach provides a client download for Windows that the user in the censored country downloads (installation is not required) on his or her own computer. It is free software and is available in English and Chinese. Once started, the application opens an Internet Explorer application that is automatically configured to allow the user to browse web sites through UltraSurf. Other browsers must be manually configured. By default, the connection is encrypted and various techniques are used to find an unblocked IP address.

UltraSurf is an excellent choice for non-technical users who are willing to trust a third-party and require free web browsing at reasonable speeds. Since the UltraReach website is often already blocked in some countries, a user in a censored jurisdiction may have to acquire the software through a third party. Even though the site may be blocked, the service could still be accessible as measures are taken to acquire unblocked IP addresses in a variety of ways. However, even these could be blocked by a very determined censor.

Some Useful tips:

  • Check your net connection remember that it needs certain level of net speed to run Ultra Surf smoothly.
  • check proxy settings of Ultra Surf, when u download fresh version u need to tweak proxy settings of Ultra Surf. do that manually, also sometimes proxy setting of Ultra Surf get vanished automatically.. do check for proxy setting and feed it manually. For any kind of browser Proxy IP address is 127.0.0.1 with port :9666 and For Ultra Surf it depends upon your network.
  • 8.8 is the latest one and it is the best coz when there is no net connectivity it automatically flashes a message…. it won’t hang u there for retry
  • also last tip is that when net slows down or ain’t working at all, just exit Ultra Surf and re start it. instead of retry.. try exit and re start it…trust me retry is bad idea. just restart the whole thing.

For Firefox browser: If you are using browser other than IE, then you have to manually change your proxy IP address to 127.0.0.1 with port :9666 of Firefox browser.

For Mac Users: change your proxy IP address to 127.0.0.1 with port :9666 of Safari browser.
