Unblock the websites

Hi Guys,

Some of the websites are blocked in my office. And I know the root password.
I tried to unblock those sites.. Checked
Code:
cd /etc/modprobe.d

Code:
[agunasekaran@localhost modprobe.d]$ cat blacklist.conf 
#
# Listing a module here prevents the hotplug scripts from loading it.
# Usually that'd be so that some other driver will bind it instead,
# no matter which driver happens to get probed first.  Sometimes user
# mode tools can also control driver binding.
#
# Syntax: see modprobe.conf(5).
#

# watchdog drivers
blacklist i8xx_tco

# framebuffer drivers
blacklist aty128fb
blacklist atyfb
blacklist radeonfb
blacklist i810fb
blacklist cirrusfb
blacklist intelfb
blacklist kyrofb
blacklist i2c-matroxfb
blacklist hgafb
blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivafb
blacklist savagefb
blacklist sstfb
blacklist neofb
blacklist tridentfb
blacklist tdfxfb
blacklist virgefb
blacklist vga16fb
blacklist viafb

# ISDN - see bugs 154799, 159068
blacklist hisax
blacklist hisax_fcpcipnp

# sound drivers
blacklist snd-pcsp

# I/O dynamic configuration support for s390x (bz #563228)
blacklist chsc_sch

modprobe is not used for blocking websites. You may check /etc/hosts for any entries.
# 3  
How to unblock websites depends on how they were blocked in the first place. It may not be your machine that does so, it could be anything upstream of you.

They are blocked int the server!! We are using the proxy IP address now. But its very slow to use.. How can rectify it..?

I'd say more important is who blocked them.

Are you attempting to circumvent that?

If you are not knowledgeable enough to know where websites are blocked you probably should not attempt to remove such filters in first place. We help to solve technical problems, we do NOT help to create security risks.

The files ("/etc/hosts*") you have mentioned have nothing to do with website blocking at all.
