Re: Time for a steganographic VPN
"A VPN could be implemented as a stream of encoded normal-text, using some long standard text. It could use any part of the text - extra spaces, or substituted words. Making it still seem like normal text to censors while having some efficiency might be difficult."
Just sign up for the VPN service, and find out what IP or hostname they use for their server, and then block it. It is apparently what they did.
Because OpenVPN can simply use port 445 (htts), and since the packets are encrypted, you can't tell OpenVPN over port 445 from https.
