Censorship Circumvention Tools
This page is about the censorship circumvention tools other than Tor Bridges. If you are not experiencing a real censorship (for example, only some ports are blocked by your ISP), then something simpler can be tried.

- Decoy Routing
- Morphmix java
- Type? (VPN, proxy, ssh?)
- Usable with Open Source Software, without any proprietary client? (OpenVPN etc.)
- Is there a Linux version?
- Does it work in WINE?
- Can Whonix ™ (Tor) get tunneled through it? (Whonix ™ (Tor) can get tunneled thought a VPN running on the host and also supports all kinds of proxy settings (http(s), socks4(a)/5).)
- Instructions for using it with Whonix ™?
