Ultrasurf is very easy to use without any installation. Thus it can be run from a USB stick and be used on a public computer if you need to surf the net. When you use it, it allows you to have access to the desired websites via Ultrasurf’s servers. The following will show you how to use it in 3 steps:
Go to Ultrasurf.biz site, and click on the “DOWNLOAD Ultrasurf” button on the top, then you can download the Ultrasurf latest version as a ZIP file.
2. Run After download, extract the ZIP file, then you can get an EXE file, open which, you can run Ultrasurf directly. In case you come across with a Windows Security Alert, such as what you can see from the following image:
Just click on the “Allow access” button, then you can see an IE new tab, and you can unblock any blocked sites right away.
3. Set browser network proxy
On IE, you can use the Ultrasurf proxy service directly after connection, but on Chrome, Firefox, Safari or any other browser, you also need to set the network proxy to “127.0.0.1 : 9666”. Take Firefox for example, you can find the proxy settings page via the following path:
Preference –> Advanced –> Network –> Settings
Then select “Manual proxy configuration” to enter “127.0.0.1” & “9666” on the HTTP Proxy column, check the “Use this proxy server for all protocols” box, and click the “OK” button to save the change, as what you can see from the following image:
Instead to set the network proxy settings manually as mentioned above, you can also check out SwitchySharp and FoxyProxy to set them automatically.
After that, you can bypass internet censorship, encrypt online communications, and hide your IP on non-IE browsers, too.
