hosts Modifying Tool

Introduction

This is a hosts file modifying tool for Windows for GFW circumvention, which is written in bat script. However, this tool, essentially the hosts file, doesn't work universally. It works better at IPv6 than IPv4. Generally speaking, if you are using the Internet at a not-that-bad university in Mainland China, you are using IPv6, if not, you are using IPv4. I personally recommend you to using proxy instead such as Shadowsocks instead of this hosts file modifying tool if you are using IPv4.

Usage

Download the latest release and then extract it and run steup.bat. Running as administrater will be required automatically, please allow it.

Source and License

Different licenses are applied for different part seperately for this repository.

The hosts file is not my own work. I merged these two repositories and made some minor editions.

I release the bat file, which is my own work, to public domain via CC0 because its codes are very simple.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
