Pluggable transport to circumvent IP address blocking - nodejs proxy

Flashproxy is a tool to circumvent censorship by setting up many, generally ephemeral, browser-based proxies, with the goal of outpacing a censor's ability to enumerate and block the IP addresses of those proxies. Censored clients can then connect to a Tor relay via these proxies, by using a hard-to-block, low- bandwidth registration system called the facilitator.

This package contains a nodejs-based proxy to be run as a local service. It is for people that constantly want to act as proxies for censored users. Due to the design of the system, it more useful when installed on a machine that continually changes IP address, such as a laptop.

Most end-users do not need to install this package.
