A few of our clients either do business in China or have worked in China at one point, so the topic of Wiredrive and the "Great Firewall of China" does come up. While we ultimately do not have control over what IP ranges the Chinese government decides to block, there are specific steps that users can take to increase the chances of Wiredrive working in China.

- Use a VPN. A VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows users to access a private network that is not subject to local geo-restrictions. Our users speak highly of Astrill for use in China.

- Use a personal Proxy server. Proxy servers are another way to bypass local network restrictions by rerouting traffic. One can be set up fairly easily via Google App Engine.

- Use Wiredrive Go! If you need to show presentations, we recommend doing so with Wiredrive Go. Because it does not require an internet connection to display media, you will not be subject to internet restrictions.
