Found this juicy item. Might help Nuxified's Chinese guests.

This was an amazingly clever note. Using a simple iptables rule and Linux, you can surf wherever you want in China as long as no one sees you.

Welcome back Supermike!

Welcome back Supermike! Very Happy

Seems it's getting pretty easy to get around the Chinese great firewall, either with proxies and now with those firewall rules. You can practically nullify all censorship.

I don't think that it'll ever fully work as there will always be people who'll get around that. The point? There is no point to censoring stuff on the net. Those who really want to access something and use some sites will find a way and those are usually determined enough to be the ones Chinese government is probably most worried about anyway.

Thanks for the link Mike.
