So, does a VPN go in the DMZ? It depends. If you’re using a VPN for security purposes, then it’s best to keep it off of the DMZ. This way, if the DMZ is compromised, your VPN will still be safe. However, if you’re using a VPN for bypassing restrictions or accessing resources on a remote network, then putting it in the DMZ may be necessary.
So, if you’re planning a trip to China or are already living there, how can you go about watching YouTube videos? Below we outline a few methods:
1. Use a VPN
VPNs (virtual private networks) encrypt your internet traffic and route it through servers in other countries. This means that when you connect to a VPN server outside of China, you’ll be able to bypass the country’s censorship filters and access blocked websites like YouTube.
Of course, not all VPNs work in China. The government has been cracked down on these tools in recent years and has even gone as far as blocking certain VPN providers outright. So, if you’re going to use a VPN in China, make sure to do your research beforehand and sign up for a service that is known to work well in the country (we recommend NordVPN).
2. Use Tor Browser
No, you cannot go to jail for using a VPN in China. However, the Chinese authorities do their best to limit access to VPNs. One way they do this is by removing VPN apps from app stores. As with all Google services, Google Play is blocked in China.
