Re: [tor-talk] Meek Problems



Hello,
I actually figured out the problem a couple of days ago.  The sensor
is changing the Google.com URL to something odd that I think may
affect the TLS.  So instead of fronting www.google.com, I told Tor
Browser to front gmail.com and it worked.
Thanks for the information,
Justin.
