How to Help Libyans Stay On the Internet Despite Government Restrictions

For those unfamiliar, the short description of this effort is this: It looks like the Libyan government is causing internet blackouts in the country but it is possible to get and stay on the internet using dial up modems. The idea being to fax guides on how to use these dialup modems to numbers in Libya Here's info about how to do it that I compiled from Anonymous' #OpLibya as well as from another online activist group Telecomix.

1) Use search engines to find (free?) internet fax sites that you can use such as www.faxzero.com or exfax.com It might be hard to find a place to send a fax for free to Libya, but honestly its worth it to pay the money to send at least one fax, it'll make a difference.

2) Arm yourself with a list of numbers in Libya to fax to. People are being cautioned against faxing to random numbers due to the Libyan government possibly using a fax someone randomly sent as an excuse to hurt the person behind the fax numbers. here are some numbers I found that people are faxing to.

3) You need to find things to send. here and here are two documents groups Telecomix and Anonymous are encouraging people to distribute. Feel free to add pages to the faxes you send, but I would recommend definitely sending one of those two topics to begin with.

Here are some dial up numbers and info to get you started that Anonymous is distributing (more dialup info here:

Other helpful info to think of spreading to Libya by any means:

1) Free and Uncensored DNS servers for those in Libya here:
<blockquote>87.118.100.175 (Ports: 53, 110)
94.75.228.29 (Ports: 53, 110, HTTPS-DNS, DNSSEC)
  62.75.219.7 (Ports: 53, 110, HTTPS-DNS, DNSSEC)
  87.118.104.203 (Ports: 53, 110, DNSSEC)
  62.141.58.13 (Ports: 53, 110, HTTPS-DNS, DNSSEC)
  87.118.109.2 (Ports: 53, 110, DNSSEC)</div></blockquote>
This is useful because as we've seen in countries like Egypt, one way of the government trying to censor websites is through DNS. (what is <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System">DNS</a> )

2) Here is some info for people to post to twitter by calling a number and speaking:
<blockquote>Speak To Tweet

Call the numbers below to hear tweets or leave a tweet.

+16504194196
+390662207294
+442033184514</blockquote>

 

3) Relevant proxy information. This can easily be found using google...

Well that's about it for now. Feel free to post questions and I'll answer them the best I can but really for someone wants to help out with this I'd recommend going to channel #oplibya on anonymous irc server at irc.anonops.ru or irc.anonops.in Also hit up Telecomix's IRC for info as well. thanks,
