Bypassing IP restriction can be done using various methods, including the use of Burp Suite, Curl, and Python. In this blog post, we will demonstrate how to bypass IP restriction using these tools.

Method 1: Using Burp Suite Burp Suite is a popular tool used by security researchers for web application testing. It can be used to intercept and modify HTTP requests and responses. Burp Suite can be used to bypass IP restriction by modifying the IP address in the HTTP request header.

Here are the steps to bypass IP restriction using Burp Suite:

  1. Open Burp Suite and navigate to the “Proxy” tab.
  2. Enable the intercept feature by clicking on the “Intercept is on” button.
  3. Configure your browser to use Burp Suite as a proxy server.
  4. Access the restricted website in your browser.
  5. Burp Suite will intercept the request, and you can modify the “X-Forwarded-For” header to bypass the IP restriction.
  6. Forward the request to the web application.

Method 2: Using Curl Curl is a command-line tool used for transferring data between servers. It supports various protocols, including HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and SMTP. Curl can be used to bypass IP restriction by modifying the IP address in the HTTP request header.

Here are the steps to bypass IP restriction using Curl:

  1. Open the terminal and type the following command:
curl -H "X-Forwarded-For: <allowed IP address>" <restricted website URL>
  1. Replace “<allowed IP address>” with an IP address that is allowed by the IP restriction rules.
  2. Replace “<restricted website URL>” with the URL of the restricted website.
  3. Press Enter to send the request.

Method 3: Using Python Code Python is a popular programming language used for various purposes, including web application development and automation. Python can be used to bypass IP restriction by modifying the IP address in the HTTP request header.

Here is a Python code snippet that can be used to bypass IP restriction:

import requests
url = "<restricted website URL>"
headers = {
"X-Forwarded-For": "<allowed IP address>"
}
response = requests.get(url, headers=headers)
print(response.text)
  1. Replace “<restricted website URL>” with the URL of the restricted website.
  2. Replace “<allowed IP address>” with an IP address that is allowed by the IP restriction rules.
  3. Run the code to send the request.

In conclusion, IP restriction can be bypassed using various methods, including the use of Burp Suite, Curl, and Python. However, it’s important to note that bypassing IP restriction without authorization is illegal and can result in legal consequences. It’s essential to use these techniques only for testing purposes with the proper authorization and permissions.
