Previously, I use the network from HongKong Polytechnical University
(I don't know who is the ISP for HK PolyU), when I try to connect with Tor.
via bridge, I have found its TCP handshaking works fine,
but SSL handshaking is blocked (A packet for SSL client Hello is sent to, but the bridge never gives me reponse):
================================================================= ==>   TCP  eicon-server > https [SYN] Seq=0
Win=65535 Len=0 MSS=1460 ==>   TCP  https > eicon-server [SYN, ACK]
Seq=0 Ack=1 Win=5840 Len=0 MSS=1460 ==>   TCP  eicon-server > https [ACK] Seq=1
Ack=1 Win=65535 Len=0 ==>   SSL      Client Hello ==>   TCP      https > eicon-server [ACK] Seq=1
Ack=137 Win=6432 Len=0

So I guess maybe the ISP messed up SSL in general?
