Download the latest Pluggable Transports Bundle from our website at

If you are unable to access our website, please try the mirrors below.

The bundle you are looking for is the "tor-pluggable-transports" bundle,
version 2.4.11-alpha-2. At the time of writing, this is the latest
version. If you refer to these instructions at a later time and see a
more recent version, use that.

Next, you should verify the bundles integrity using GnuPG to ensure that it has
not been tampered with. To do this, please follow our signature verification
guide available on our website, as well as the mirrors below.

Once you have verified the bundles integrity, pick a random port number between 
10000 and 65535 to open on your router.

***If you already know how to set up port forwarding, you can skip this

To set up port forwarding on your router, you will need to get your router's 
internal IP address from your computer.

For Windows, open the command prompt and enter:
ipconfig /all

For Mac, open the command prompt and enter:
netstat -nr

For Linux, open the command prompt and enter:
route -n.

Your router's internal IP address (that you are looking for)
should look something like this:

Open your regular internet browser (for example Firefox) and enter
that address in the URL bar. This will take you to your router's
control panel. You will be prompted for a username and password.

On Linksys routers, type "admin" for both the username and the password.
On Netgear routers, type "admin" for the username and "password" for
the password.
On other routers, try leaving the username empty and entering
"admin" for the password.

Open the Port Forwarding or Applications and Gaming tab.  Each router
will be slightly different, but look for these two options.  If you
don't see them, try Advanced Settings and look for a Port Forwarding

If you need to enter a name for the application that will listen on this
port, the program is flashproxy-client.

Add your IP address along with the port you chose earlier. You can get
your IP address from the command line with these commands:

For Windows:

For Mac or Linux:

Make sure to save the changes on your router before you close the window.

Most users have a dynamic internal IP address which will change fairly
frequently (once per week or so). You may need to occasionally look up
your IP address again and modify the entry in your router to match your
new IP address.

*** End port forwarding instructions ***

Next, Find your torrc file in the Tor Browser/Data/Tor folder.
Open it and find the line that begins with "ClientTransportPlugin".
Modify it to look like this:

ClientTransportPlugin websocket exec flashproxy-client :0 :37910

Use the port number you chose to open on your router instead of 37910.

Be aware that it may take a while (3 - 5 minutes) for Tor to connect 
using this method. If you see anything 15% or higher in Vidalia's 
Message Log, it means that it is working. If it is failing, it will stop at 10%.
