In case your office network has blocked some of the types of file extensions like .zip or .exe , it becomes very irritating as even to test small things you can not download it. This is what is happening with me as I am behind a proxy and all those file extensions are blocked. But now i got a solution for his. Download at Work (Website Removed) is an online tool which allows you to download any type of file.
This is what it does.
- Takes the URL of the file which you want to download.
- Asks you to select the extension in which format you want to download in to your machine.
- Also gives you a .aaa extensions which should not be blocked ( unless they get to know it).
Here is a snpshot of it
After you download the file, just rename the extension of the original file. The only flaw here is in case your the administrator sees lot of files getting downloaded from the same url , they might block it forever. But till then…
