Access from Iran


#1

Hi, Access from Iran is still prohibited. Most of U.S Sanctions against Iran are now lifted, Why c9.io still doesn’t allow users to access the website from Iran?

Is really some educational usage of these tools harmful to anybody?

Thanks.

Most likely because Iran does not allow it, not because Cloud9 blocks Iranian users.

@oordeeldag Unfortunately Google Compute Engine is still blocked in Iran https://groups.google.com/d/msg/gce-discussion/NhrK8vQPp_o/o1hpAjWfBQAJ, and Cloud9 uses GCE https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2013/12/cloud9-ide-on-google-compute-engine.html

Solution use Tor with OBFS4 Bridges to bypass their filter.

Download Tor over Email: gettor@torproject.org
Get Tor Bridges over Email: bridges@torproject.org (requires a Gmail, Yahoo, or Riseup email address)

If you don’t have access to one of the above email providers for bridges you could always send an email to help@rt.torproject.org and they could work something out with you.
