Common ways to bypass block
Nowadays, the most common ways to bypass GFW block or any other kind of blocks are:
The first two are basically semi-obsolete. SSR is no longer in active development. SS is easy to be detected without obfs plugin. V2ray and Trojan are not that easy for newbies because they need you to have a domain, SSL and open the 80,443 port on your VPS.
So, Thus where Snell comes in. Snell is an encrypted proxy service program with traffic obfuscating is embedded (HTTP & TLS), and the best part is, it's very easy to setup (only three lines command needed).
Before we deploy any proxy service on our VPS, it's essential to enable BBR service, it can boost your connection speed. In this guide, I will use an one key script.
wget -N --no-check-certificate "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chiakge/Linux-NetSpeed/master/tcp.sh" chmod +x tcp.sh ./tcp.sh
In this example, we just press 4 and Enter to enable BBR service on our Ubuntu 18.04 system.
First, we need to download the corresponding release of your system. For most server, we just need the amd64 version.
# Download wget https://github.com/surge-networks/snell/releases/download/v2.0.1/snell-server-v2.0.2-linux-amd64.zip # Decompress sudo apt install unzip unzip snell-server-v2.0.2-linux-amd64.zip # if you execute for the first time, a wizard will guide you to generate a new config. ./snell-server
Modify the config
You can use
nano snell-server.conf to modify the snell config. Use
Ctrl+X to save when finished.
If we just excute the
./snell-server normally, it will stop once we close the SSH terminal. In order to let it run on the background, we have serval ways to achieve this. In this tutorial, I will use
# Ubuntu or Debian sudo apt install tmux # CentOS or Fedora sudo yum install tmux
# Creat session tmux new -s snell # detach session `crtl`+`b` `d` # connect session tmux attach-sesssion -t snell # kill session tmux kill-session -t snell
Connect to Snell Server
After Snell is running on our server. We can use Clash to connect to it.
Clash is a rule-based tunnel in Go.
For IOS, you can use Surge or Shadowrocket on the Apple app store.
