Connect to VPN Gate via Shadowsocks?

Post by バルサミコ酢 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 3:16 pm

Hey friends,

I usually get my laptop to bypass GFW by connecting it to an American VPS server via shadowsocks.
Recently I need to check out some anime on Nicovideo that are blocked for non-Japanese IPs,
and this VPN Gate service looks promising.
However, I cannot directly connect to these VPN servers from my laptop because of the GFW,
and I realize that somehow I need to use my shadowsocks together with VPN Gate to get things to work.
But I am not quite sure how exactly this should be carried out. In particular, should I

(1) configure my VPS (which runs ubuntu without a GUI) to be a VPN client,

or

(2) massage with the network settings on my own laptop in some clever way,
without affecting the VPS?

Any ideas?

I ended up installing openvpn client on my VPS and connecting it to VPN Gate servers. Works like a charm!!!

Big thanks to VPN Gate project!!!

Any further idea is still welcome, though.

Could you tell me how did you set the openvpn? How did you use ssh to VPS when openvpn is running?

I was also trying to connect with VPN by using shadowsocks but I was unable to do that. After reading your article I find my solution. You can contact us if you face any problem while using Gmail at https://gmailhelp.net/
