This guide will help you set up an obfs4 bridge to help censored users connect to the Tor network. The requirements are:

  1. 24/7 Internet connectivity
  2. The ability to expose TCP ports to the Internet (make sure that NAT doesn't get in the way)

Note: If you're running a platform that is not listed on this page, you can compile obfs4 from source.
