    Hi, so I have a problem and could do with some help. I'll try outline the issue I have as simply and as fully as possible here.

    I work offshore where the internet connection is satellite based and therefore very slow and naturally a lot of websites (youtube etc) are blocked. In addition to this, whatsapp on phones is also blocked. I have been told I can bypass this with a simple VPN/proxy app but guess what, the iTunes store is also blocked! Essentially, what I'm looking to do is either set up my iPhone 5s to be able to bypass the server restrictions or more likely, set up my macbook so I can download my required proxy app for my iPhone. Is there an easy way to do this?

    I am connected to the server using both HTTP and HTTPS protocols.

    Thanks for any help in advance!
