Recently, I have had a couple of friends complain about not been able to browse on their laptops with the simple server application due to their laptops coming with windows 8.1 or higher. As a result of this, some have decided to either downgrade their custom windows software to a lower version or forget entirely about browsing with the simple server on Windows 8.1 PC.
Well look no further and wipe your tears cause www.naijaknowhow.com is here with the Calvary. The discovery of psiphon, a strong application that uses VPN, SSH and HTTP technology to grant you unrestricted access to the internet and bypass proxy while using a laptop pre-installed with the windows 8.1 version is here. With the combination of simple server, all your internet connection worries are over. It logs you on into any website regardless of the “enable cookies” error you see. That is to say, you can login to your WordPress blog or any other page with admin access as well…sweet. From now on it’s goodbye to normal data subscription while it lasts. All you need are the following listed below.
