Visit Appspot.com From China

The reason behind this blog is to show you how to make GAppProxy work again. In China, most of people rely on GAppProxy to access the 'outside world'. But appspot.com is blocked in China. So here is a simple tutorial to show you how to make it work.

The idea is very simple: find the workable google IP and add it to hosts file.


Step1:

nslookup www.google.com

You can find something like:

nslookup www.google.com
Server:   192.168.1.1
Address:  192.168.1.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: www.google.com
Address: 74.125.128.99
Name: www.google.com
Address: 74.125.128.105
Name: www.google.com
Address: 74.125.128.103
Name: www.google.com
Address: 74.125.128.147
Name: www.google.com
Address: 74.125.128.106
Name: www.google.com
Address: 74.125.128.104

Basically you just need to try https://74.125.128.x/ to check which one is working. 'x' can be any number. If you can visit https://74.125.128.x/, continue to Step2.


Step2:

Modify /etc/hosts file and add one line:

74.125.128.x $your_app_engine_id.appspot.com

Replace $your_app_engine_id with your registered google app engine ID.

Hope this will help you.
