Regular http proxies are not enough here. They can be scanned and the users tracked down or shut down or worse.
Activists should download Putty for windows, or if you use linux even easier.
Administrators who wish to help setup ssh accounts with the following credentials
May also need to implement these settings in openssh
Linux users just use the following to connect to the proxy
ssh -D 5214 username@ip-address-of-ssh-server
The 5214 can be any port number but remember this number for later.
Windows users using putty..
setup your hostname to connect to
under Connection > SSH > Tunels
Add new forward port
Source port = port you used above to connect to the SSH server.
Choose dynamic option under destination and click add.. you should see your port number listed as
D:port# ie D6314
I use Firefox, but this can be done with Internet Exploder. In Firefox click on the Tools Tab.
Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Network
Under Connection click on the Settings button
Choose Manual Proxy configuration, and SOCKS v5
Fill in localhost for the host, and 3000 for the port
Click OK and reload the page
Check http://www.whatismyip.com to see if your ip is now not your ip..
You also want to tunnel your DNS requests..
To change this, set network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = true in about:config.
Advanced users seek out foxyproxy so you can easily setup multiple proxies as you discover them.
