How to use bridges
The primary way to use bridges is to go to https://bridges.torproject.org/ . Solve the CAPTCHA there, and it will give you up to three lines, for example (these are working): bridge 22.214.171.124:443 bridge 126.96.36.199:9001 Now, you open Vidalia by double-clicking the green onion in the system tray. Go to Settings -> Network. Tick "My ISP blocks connections to the Tor network". New boxes will appear below. Use the edit line and add only the IP:Port pairs. For this example, you would first enter 188.8.131.52:443 , then press the green "+" sign on the right. The IP will appear below in the larger box. Then, you enter 184.108.40.206:9001 , press the green "+" sign. You can repeat this for as many bridges as you have. Then, click OK. Now, if Tor is still/already running, press "Stop Tor", wait, then "Start Tor" again. If https://bridges.torproject.org/ is blocked for you, you can get bridges by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The rest of the process is the same. Just make sure you don't paste in the "bridges" part of the lines in Vidalia. We are working on a version that removes it automatically. Hope this helps!
