PrefaceMy Internet Freedom Declaration Preface My Internet Freedom DeclarationWhile there is no definition, someone declares five basic principles of Internet Freedom, which areExpression, Access, Openness, Innovation and Privacy.As a man living in China, I totally agree with those 5 principles and know how import internet freedom willbe, since you might go to jail by a message you posted online, fail to visit Facebook, Twitter, YouTube andmany other websites, get your website shut down because of one criticized post, and even find out that yourprivate chat history were released to the police without any court document, so on and so forth.Sounds horrible, right? But which were all happened in the Chinese internet world.Since 2007, I have fought against the GFW (great firewall) the biggest part of Internet Censorship in China,by testing free anti-censorship tools as many as possible and sharing them on my blogs, both Free Nuts andJing Pin (in Chinese).Up till now, I have tested and introduced over 100 free anti-censorship tools, including VPN, Proxy, SSH andmore, among which, some may be not available any more when you are reading this book, but luckily, therewill be always some new tools, and I will keep an eye on them.1 7.

Chapter TwoFree Proxy SoftwaresChapter TwoFree Proxy SoftwaresAlthough both are proxies, desktop softwares are different from online websites.While online proxies are full of ads, there are less or even no ads for proxy desktop softwares; while you canuse online proxies directly, you need to download and install their clients before you can use those proxysoftwares.If the websites of those proxy softwares are blocked in your area (such as China), it is a good idea for you touse free online proxies to visit them.Among those free proxy softwares, the following 7 are the best:1. Ultrasurf;2. Freegate;3. Tor;4. GappProxy;5. Goagent;6. Hyk-proxy;7. Snova.9 15. Chapter TwoPart One: Ultrasurf Part One: UltrasurfAs one of the best proxy softwares, Ultrasurf is very easy to use without any installation.The following will show you how to use it in 3 steps:1. Download UltrasurfOpen the Ultrasurf.us site, and click on the "FREE DOWNLOAD" button on the right top, then you candownload the Ultrasurf client as a ZIP file.In case the Ultrasurf.us site is blocked in your area (such as China), you can use some other proxies, SSHtunnels or VPN services to unblock it.2. Run Ultrasurf10 16. Chapter TwoPart One: UltrasurfAfter download, extract the ZIP file, then you can get an EXE file, open which, you can run Ultrasurfdirectly.In case you come across with a Windows Security Alert, such as what you can see from the following image:11 17. Chapter TwoPart One: UltrasurfJust click on the "Allow access" button, then you can see an IE new tab of Wujie, which is the Chineseversion of Ultrasurf, and you can unblock any blocked sites right away.3. Set browser network proxyOn IE, you can use the Ultrasurf proxy service directly after connection, but on Chrome, Firefox, Safari orany other browser, you also need to set the network proxy to "127.0.0.1 : 9666".Take Firefox for example, you can find the proxy settings page via the following path: Preference &gt; Advanced &gt; Network &gt; SettingsThen select "Manual proxy configuration" to enter "127.0.0.1" &amp; "9666" on the HTTP Proxy column, checkthe "Use this proxy server for all protocols" box, and click the "OK" button to save the change, as what youcan see from the following image: 12 18. Chapter TwoPart One: UltrasurfInstead to set the network proxy settings manually as mentioned above, you can also check out SwitchySharpand FoxyProxy to set them automatically.After that, you can bypass internet censorship, encrypt online communications, and hide your IP on non-IEbrowsers, too. 13 19. Chapter TwoPart Two: FreegatePart Two: FreegateLike Ultrasurf, Freegate is also a very popular and easy-to-use proxy service.The following will show you how to use Freegate in 3 steps:I. Download FreegateOpen the Dynaweb site and download the Freegate client software, whether in exe or zip format.In case the Dynaweb site is blocked in your area (such as China), you can use some other proxies, SSHtunnels or VPN services to unblock it first.II. Run FreegateIf you downloaded the exe file, just open it, and if you downloaded the zip file, extract it and run the exe file.When the connection is successful, you can use the Freegate proxy service right away, as what you can seefrom the following image:14 20. Chapter TwoPart Two: FreegateBut before you can see the control panel in the above image, you may come across the following 2 pop-upwindows:1. Freegate Proxy Control15 21. Chapter TwoPart Two: FreegateAs default, the domains of ".cn", ".baidu", ".qq" and some other suffixes will be connected directly, eventhough you remove them or select "Choose All websites go through Freegate proxy", which means you cantvisit the sites of those domains with Freegate anyway.So, you can neglect this window and just click the "OK" button to close it.2. Windows Security AlertIn case you come across with a Windows Security Alert, such as what you can see from the following image: 16 22. Chapter TwoPart Two: FreegateJust click on the "Allow access" button, then you can see the proxys Chinese site Dongtaiwang on your IEbrowser.III. Set browser network proxy17 23. Chapter TwoPart Two: FreegateSame as Ultrasurf, On IE, you can use the Freegate proxy service directly after connection, but on Chrome,Firefox, Safari or any other browser, you also need to set the network proxy to "127.0.0.1 : 8580".The above instructions are for Windows only, in fact, Freegate is also available on Mac and Linux computeroperating systems, and you can refer to the FAQ page for the usages.And besides computers, Freegate also supports Android, Java and WM mobile phones, but only in Chinese.18 24. Chapter TwoPart Three: TorPart Three: TorAs one of the most popular proxy softwares, Tor can be used on Windows, Mac, Linux/BSD/Unix, Androidand Nokia Maemo/N900 systems, with multiple languages supported.The following will show you how to use its basic and most popular 2 versions Tor Browser Bundle andVidalia Bundle on Windows and Mac.1. Download TorOn the Download page, you can choose to download the right version according to your computer systems.For Tor Browser Bundle, you can and only can use its own browser (based on Firefox) to use its proxyservice; and for Vidalia Bundle, you can use your Firefox, Chrome, Safari or some other browsers by settingtheir network proxies.By the way, you can choose the Tor browser output language before downloading Tor Browser Bundle.2. Run Tor19 25. Chapter TwoPart Three: TorNo matter which version you downloaded, you can extract or install the package and run the Tor servicedirectly.For Tor Browser Bundle, you can run the "Start Tor Browser" (for Windows) or "TorBrowser" (for Mac)file, and for Vidalia Bundle, you can run the "Vidalia" file.If the onion icon turns green, then the Tor proxy is working.3. Add bridges 20 26. Chapter TwoPart Three: TorIf the onion icon doesnt turn green, then the current Tor network is blocked, and the easiest way to solve theproblem is to open the Vidalias "Network" settings page, to select "My ISP blocks connections to the Tornetwork", and to add some bridges.So, how to get bridges for Tor? The following are 2 ways for your choice:3.1 Via webVisit the Bridges page, and enter the verification code, then you can get 2 bridges.3.2 Via emailYou can send an email with "get bridges" subject to "bridges@torproject.org" via your Gmail, soon you willget three newest bridges.21 27.
