Most offices block embedded object access, but don't worry, we've got you covered! This document will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to deal with this problem.
Step 1: Identify Blocked Access
The first step is to identify that the problem lies with your office blocking the embedded object. You can use the Developer Tools in Chrome to help you with that. Go to the Network tab in Developer Tools and reload the page. Look at the list of requests. If you can’t see the resource you expect there, it may be blocked.
Step 2: Set Up a VPN
If you’ve identified that your office is blocking the embedded object, the next step is to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN). VPNs allow you to access sites and services that may otherwise be blocked. There are many different VPNs on the market, so do shop around to find one that meets your needs.
Step 3: Clear Your Cache
Once you’ve set up your VPN, the next step is to clear your cache. Your browser may be caching old versions of the page and not loading the latest updates. To clear your cache, first open up the Chrome Developer Tools. Then in Developer Tools, press the “Clear Cache” button.
Step 4: Check Your Settings
The last step is to double check your browser settings. Make sure that pop-up blockers and ad blockers are disabled, as they may be preventing the embedded objects from loading.
What other steps can I take if my office has blocked access to an embedded object?
If the steps above don't solve the problem, you can also check your firewall settings to make sure it isn't blocking the resource. Additionally, check the URL that the object is being loaded from, as it may be blocked by your office's web filter.
How do I use the Chrome Developer Tools to diagnose my office's blocked access?
To use the Chrome Developer Tools to diagnose the issue, first open up the developer tools window. Then in the Developer Tools window, click on the “Network” tab. This will give you a list of all the requests that your browser is generating when it is trying to load the page. Scroll through the list and look for the resource you are expecting. If it isn't there, it may be blocked.
What is a VPN and how do I set one up?
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a secure tunnel between two or more devices that encrypts the traffic passing between them. This makes it ideal for accessing blocked sites and services. There are many different VPNs on the market, so it's important to shop around to find one that meets your needs. Most VPNs provide setup instructions on how to get up and running.
How can I clear my cache to ensure I'm viewing the latest version of the page?
To clear your cache, first open up the Chrome Developer Tools. Then in Developer Tools, press the “Clear Cache” button. This will clear your browser's cache and allow it to download the latest version of the page.
How can I check my browser settings to make sure that they aren't blocking the resource?
The best way to check your browser settings to make sure that they aren't blocking your resource is to open up the browser's settings page and look for any settings related to pop-ups, ad blockers, and the like. Make sure to double-check these settings and turn them off if necessary.
