    98 === Test to see if obfs2/obfs3 bridges work ===
    99 
    100 It seems that people who run obfsbridges have a tendency of shutting them down after a few weeks. This means that sometimes support people are giving out dead bridges to people. An easy way to test if an obfs2/obfs3 bridge works is to connect directly to its IP:PORT (using telnet (on Mac or Windows) or netcat (on Linux)) and see if you get a random blob of data back.
    101 
    102 Here is an example of a functional bridge:

    104 If you don't get that random blob, the bridge is probably dead and you should replace it with another one.
    105 
    106 (Obviously this method just tests whether the bridge is dead, not whether it is blocked in a censoring country.)
