1. I'm heading off to Dubai next week for my xmas holiday. I know they block all porn/gambling sites there, so does anyone know a way of getting arround this? Would using a differnt i.p work? If so how do you go about doing that?

  2. I don't know what the law is there, but if they go to the trouble of blocking all that stuff I'd guess they might be fairly serious about it.

    I'd look into that before I found a way to get around the filters.

  3. i live in dubai and play online poker occasionally. There are two internet service providers here etisalat and du. etisalat has a proxy and blocks gambling related webpages (but not pocketfives) and porn sites howevevr most poker clients work. du has no proxy and every website works. etisalat is the most common provider as it serves most of dubai but depending on where u are staying whether it be hotel or family they may use du either way u should be ok on playing...

  6. Just leave your computer at home on, establish a RDC (remote desktop connection) from Dubai to your place and play. It would be just like playing at home, no one in Dubai will even know.
    Good luck

  7. i wouldnt pay attention to people saying ur gonna get thrown in prison for playing online poker. i linked up my local dubai bank account to the poker site and when i made a withdrawal i got a phone call from the local bank asking whether or not the credit was from an online gambling site. I said yes and they went through with the transfer.
