How to access Meebo if it is blocked
Meebo is a web instant messenger that currently supports AIM & ICQ, Yahoo Messenger, Jabber & GTalk and MSN. Instead of installing the instant messenger on your computer, you simply log in to the service on the Meebo websit. Here you find the same functionality that the standalone messenger provides you with.
Many schools and universities have banned the Meebo website already from their networks so that it is almost impossible to access Meebo from within the network.
The Meebo team has created an application in response called Meebo repeater which acts as a proxy so that users can access Meebo even if it has been blocked in the network. The only catch is that it has to be running on a computer all the time, they suggest you run it from your computer at home which would mean you should pay a flat fee for the internet, otherwise this does not seem practical at all.
All you have to do is download the Meebo repeater from the Meebo website, unpack it and run it. The Meebo repeater will automatically configure the service and tell you the internet address that you will have to use to connect to Meebo. You may have to configure your firewall to allow Meebo repeater access to the Internet.
Meebo repeater is open source and supports SSL and standard connections to the Meebo network. If you can't live without Meebo use the Meebo repeater, it works great.
Update: Meebo has been acquired by Google for $100M US Dollars. It is not clear yet what will happen to the existing services that Meebo is offering, but since layoffs have been announced, it is likely that the products, at least partially, will be discontinued in their current form.
Google plans to integrate the development arm of the company into the Google+ team, which makes it likely that we will see part of the Meebo technology implemented into Google's social networking service.
Update: Meebo is no more. Both the online service and the repeater are no longer available.Advertisement
Wow. What timing…
How to Access Meebo behind a School or Goverment Firewall
That sounds like a lot of work just to be able to instant message during class, but it is an ingenious idea for those that can’t live without it.
carotids, tech-recipes and my site have many similar topics, sometimes I’am faster, sometimes they are.. but we usually write around the same time..
It is now 7 days since your last review of Relakks. Do you want to update or add another one about it’s progress and what you are finding about it?
So what happens when your PC at home is blocked?
I always like to see these work arounds. Its great the even the company helps with this. We had pagers back in the day and we werent allowed to have them in school, oh how cool that vibrate function was. The teacher never knew (or if they did they didnt care).

I would strongly recommend against using Relakks. I signed up for a month with them, and they wouldn’t let me cancel.
After emailing their customer support, which is useless, I had to contact Mastercard to stop them from charging me.
They had made a total of 3 unauthorized payments to my card.
Best solution is http://www.surfnolimit.com
