The Chaos Computer Club is determined to help Olympics reporters and journalists in China to bypass the great firewall, which restricts them from accessing the Internet freely.

For this they have developed some tools and techniques using which any user can bypass the great firewall of China and can surf the web without any restriction.

Technique 1: Use a Proxy

The first technique they recommend is of using a Proxy. Here on Sizlopedia we have a couple of posts on how to use proxies to bypass firewalls:

The proxy method of bypassing Internet censorship works as long as the proxy itself is not blocked by the ISP of Government.

Technique 2: Use Freedom USB Stick

The second technique recommended by the Chaos Computer Club is to use the Freedom USB Stick.

The FreedomStick is an ordinary USB stick with the TorBrowser and Torprojects software preinstalled. These software can be downloaded in EXE and ZIP and can be installed on any USB flash drive to help you bypass Firewall restrictions in China.

Apart from making use of the Tor project, you can take a look at our 10 Free Tools to Bypass Internet Firewalls.

Wow I really love the idea of a preinstalled TOR inside a USB disk. Uber-cool.

Access websites without using a proxy look great, but did not work with my OpenDNS… It took to some search page of OpenDNS

How do I run the TOR program on my mac? It keeps asking for a program to open it with but nothing seems to work.
Any help would be great, thanks

I'm using Freedur now. It works perfectly! Really like it. Videos stream fast on Youtube. And it is cheap

FYI, the owner of Freedur Chris Mathews and his operations are very shady. There is so many bad comments floating around the internet about Chris Mathews, Freedur, ShoeMash and OpenTerrace LTD. Supposedly, Chris Mathews has stolen Freedur from its real owner – StackFile (owner – Paul Hay).

Freedur server is full of stolen files, just as example – https://freedur.net/images/placeholder/stackfil

You can read the law suit against Freedur/Chris Mathews here http://www.skydur.com/law-suit-against-chris-ma….

If I were you I would stay away from Freedur, ShoeMask and Open Terrace LTD.

You can also use a shell account and ssh to another country and feed all of your data through that server via ssh port forwarding or ssh socks5 proxy it's simple and I use it all the time

I think VPN on SSL protocol is the best way to avoid china firewall because working on udp ports not on tcp, and udp are not blocked anywhere.
