Hello Codeforces,

I am currently located in Turkmenistan and (I believe) for some political reasons ISPs here have blocked most of the websites (Facebook, Youtube, etc have long been blocked here before. When I mean "most" I mean almost any website hosted outside of Turkmenistan and Russia. That's just an observation though). Codeforces is one of the few websites I can currently access. So I decided to ask for a help here.

Would anyone owning an online server (vps, cloud, etc. anything I can ssh into and use as proxy) be kind enough to give me their ssh credentials (or even better/more secure would be to add a new user to the server for me), so that I can bypass the firewall?

I have a cloud server running on Amazon AWS. But I can not use it as proxy or vpn, because it is blocked as well.

Please comment below if you are able to help.

Thanks.

P.S. Sorry for baity title.

Btw, I can't use vpns here. I guess, someone got smart enough to block vpns as well. :/

Even Tor is blocked?

    I dont have Tor client, etc. I just came back from Turkey and I didn't expect that even VPNs will be blocked here in Turkmenistan.

      It doesn't take much time to install, so you should try it.

        The problem is I can't download Tor client. That is why I am asking for an ssh credential for cloud server that I can access. Even Gmail is blocked. I only can google things, but I can't access 95% of the result pages.

        It seems like Tor is blocked as well. The Tor client keeps telling me that "Orbot is starting..." and "Bootstrapped 10%: Finishing handshaking".

        Thank you for sending me the Tor client.

        If anyone else happens to have access to some kind of free shell or server, I would very much appreciate your help.
