Business needs some permanent basic browser/tcp/ip view from *inside China great firewall* (Hong Kong or unfirewalled locations not good) for connectivity testing, troubleshooting for customers in China. Ideally just a dedicated windows box/server. Are there any simple providers with self-provisioning VPS or similar low cost solutions. Best to have it on ChinaTel network. No hosting or content would be shared from this box. Thanks
You can try AWS China, but I think you need an ICP license for that.
The other thing is, it is pretty much useless to measure connectivity
speed, or path through the gfw from a colo box when your users in the
mainland are using broadband or maybe dedicated leased lines.
