If your ISP blocks Tor

If you are located in a country where your government mandates that the ISPs operating in that country block access to the Tor Network, you need to take some additional measures to allow secure and anonymous communications.

You need to configure Tor to use a "Bridge Server":

The Vidalia help says:
Unlike other Tor relays, bridges are not listed in the same public directories as normal relays. Since there is no complete public list of them, even if your ISP is filtering connections to all the known Tor relays, they probably won't be able to block all the bridges.
