Question as captioned.

I know how to set the exit node to USA by setting the exit node parameter to "us" and to England by "gb". But when I set that parameter to "cn", it seems fail to use a Chinese IP. Sometimes I even can't open Tor Browser properly.

Maybe I have done something wrong. Any helps are appreciated!

  • Currently I can't find find running exit nodes in China. So without any you'll have a hard time connecting to it. :-)

  • Tor is blocked in china, so no wonder guard and exit nodes are getting blocked there. Is there a real reason why do you want to use a chinese exit node in particular?

It is very unlikely you will ever find an exit node in China. In theory, the ExitNodes feature can help with that, so putting 'cn' there was the right idea - but without any exit nodes actually running in China, that won't work correctly. It seems like Tor cannot help you achieve what you want to do.


Try putting 'hk' for Hong Kong. Checking with whatismyip.com sometimes my location is reported as China and when signing up for a new Gmail account it sometimes auto-selects China as my country in the sign up form.

Depending on your needs this may be close enough for you.
