China the place of restrictions!

in #steemlast year

Dear steem-bountiers

last sunday i departed for work to China and i got a bad surprise.

All my habits in internet are restricted here!

Only Steemit seems working, but everything else not!

Whatsapp, Facebook, Google, Hotmail, every thing related to these services are restricted and no working!!

I am working in Xinxiang city and i cannot get any kind of service with normal internet, so i just installed on my laptop the program Vyprvpn which seems work but only during deep night, here now is 04.38 :(((

My main problem now is to find the way to reconnect my phones to this vpn, but for it i need to setup the laptop as wifi router.

All my try with windows 10 mobile hotspot service did get any result, this is WTF happen in my screen when i try to setup it:

I have laptop connected with ethernet cable, my vpn is working well, wifi work if i connect internet with it, but no way to use it as router wifi.

So as usual i ask to my steem-bounty friends an help and so who will help me to solve this trouble, i will give my upvote for the set bounty.

I always support my beloved community of @steem-bounty.

I feel your pain as I remember what I went through when I had to stay for days without being online due to electricity problems.

I wish I knew what it would take for everything to be normal again!

Try https://substratum.net/blog/ I don't know what the performance would be like. Wish you luck!

Dear my friend @vimukthi, you are the only one send me an answer which can solve my problems!
Thank you for all others, but i am not chinese and i do not deserve to live out of the world just because i am here for work....

Sure thing :-) I hope it helped. Lots of people in Venezuela got into crypto because of the government messups. Maybe China could become a place for Substratum to take off. But not all people are too open to open internet due to government brainwashing. Internet do have bad aspects. But running away doesn't solve anything.

Hope you'd have a good time there. Stay safe!

Be careful mate getting caught using a vpn there = jail time
Don't want to lose you to the chinese jail

The way I see it you can only control information for so long before it becomes detrimental, you'll see your best and most intelligent people defect to other countries that are more liberal losing skill and value and you're also shutting down ideas that could be beneficial for the future.

I think they will eventually give in because above all they want to be a super power of the world and free flow of information is needed to acheive that

I hate to say this, but you absolutely don't want to find a work around to the internet restrictions. Live with the laws where you are and deal with it. Not worth going to jail over a little social media time.

Chinese have a very closed intranet not internet mind you. Be careful as using VPNs is a crime. This is done to keep Chinese people out of what is happening around the world and check the spread of western liberal ideologies. I am actually surprised that steemit is actually working. No idea have never used VPN. I suggest you not to do all that and just ask for help from some local people about contacts and stuff as using VPNs can lead you into jail and communist party's surveillance of its people is high. Be careful. Just calling is better I guess.

Be very careful @intellihandling in China. Trying to circumvent those restrictions can get you in big trouble and be very mindful of who you ask for help from over there. I am glad to hear that Steemit is functioning over there!
Best wishes and looking forward to your safe return.

Yes, freedom of information just doesn't taste the same in China.
Enjoy your stay.

@intellihandling, you are now in China! Wow! Make sure to have a taste of all the local things and especially their green tea.

Okay, that's not related to your plight. You can start by asking around in your company for WECHAT and SINA WEIBO. I have Chinese friends and this is how they connect with their relatives there in the mainland.

Also, try learning some words or phrases. Try learning their customs and traditions. People tend to be more helpful when they see you try fitting into their culture...........
