Out of The Wall

BBC sources in China report they have been unable to open the Twitter messaging site in Shanghai and that message boards on Xinjiang on a number of websites were not taking posts.

Reports from Xinjiang suggest some internet and mobile phone services have been blocked.

Analysts say the government’s so-called Great Firewall of China, which it uses to block unwanted Internet material, will prevent large-scale dissemination of information but that dedicated Internet users can bypass it fairly easily.

From BBC news

GW

Great Wall

Ok, as we know, because of some reasons, the Internet of the mainland area of China is in a state of emergency. Lots of foreign web sites are blocked and many of the internal web sites also stand by at once for the information strike. And this time, GFW can show its power again. First, I am not interesting about any political conflict or which side is right. Because the truth is hard to figure out. Second, many not related sites are blocked innocently maybe just because they are sharing the same IP or within the same IP range of the sites which have “problems”. So I think it’s necessary to find a way to make it.

Many friends are seeking ways to go through this “wall” and I was asked about this questions many times. So I want to share a “easy way” to build such ladder.

Tor

Tor

“Tor” is design to increase the anonymity of our activities on the Internet. It disguises your identity and protects your online activities from many forms of Internet surveillance. It can also be used to bypass Internet filtering.

To explain in a simple way, it’s a P2P software that makes the people to be the proxy hosts to those who are also using this softwares. So we are all proxy hosts and we can let our never seen “friend” to be our proxy hosts. This feature also bring an additional usage, to bypass the GFW 😎

Installing tor is easy for everyone, but to make it work with other softwares, like the browser or IM maybe is a little difficult for them.

So I want to introduce a “tor suit” that give you a “one-stop” service. 😀

Tor Browser:

tor with configured FF

and tor with configured FF & IM & more

After extracting the files, a new folder named Tor Browser will appear in the chosen location. All you need to do is open the “Star Tor Browser.exe” .

Wish you will like it 😉

    Maybe I am a tor fans 😎 , I use this software when I was in campus. It’s cool because tor can be used on different OS platform. It said that Freegate can make the connection faster than via tor. But Freegate doesn’t have Linux version. 😐
