Circumvention of Internet censorship and filtering
This function is necessary if you cannot connect to the service, e.g.
because it is blocked by your company's firewall or by your Internet service
provider. Please, only apply these settings if you cannot connect directly

Listener port number
For JonDo to protect your communication on the Internet it has to be
interposed between your browser and the Internet. Such a local intermediary is
called a local proxy. The following
settings are specific to the proxy functionality of the program.
Enter your port number here at which JonDo will accept connections from
your browser. Please remember that your browser's settings must be adjusted accordingly. You have to configure the
HTTPS proxy settings of applications that should use JonDo to this port and
localhost or 127.0.0.1, respective, as host. Some JonDonym services also support the SOCKS5
proxy protocol additionally to HTTP.
The port number is preset to 4001 in JonDo. We recommend keeping it since
it is linked to many other settings, including JonDoFox. Only change the port if you know just
why you need to do it in your case.

If it is deactivated all PCs on the network or the Internet may connect
to your JonDo. Unauthorized individuals may then abuse your JonDo for
illegal purposes and also use the data volume you paid for it. As long a
you do not have good reason to allow other PC's access, it is recommended to
keep this security setting activated.
In some networks a connection to the Internet is only possible through the
company's or the ISP's proxy. If this is the case for you, you can edit the
settings needed for your JonDo to connect to the proxy here.
Hint: If you like, you can also enter a local Tor client here for an
additional layer of security. Your connection will be slower though.
