Unable to surf the entire web because you're stuck behind a restrictive firewall? Then Shadowsocks might be your answer.
In this Linux guide, we'll walk you through the steps to use this proxy to connect to Mullvad's servers using the OpenVPN client.
Please see our Intro to Shadowsocks guide.
Follow our OpenVPN installation guide for Linux. Skip this step if you already have this set up.
Run the command for your particular operating system.
sudo apt-get install shadowsocks-libev
sudo sh -c 'printf "deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jessie-backports.list' sudo apt update sudo apt -t jessie-backports install shadowsocks-libev
Open a terminal window and run the following command, replacing
xxx.xxx.xxx.xx with the IP address of the Mullvad bridge server you want to use as your entry location.
ss-local -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xx -p 443 -l 1080 -k 23#dfsbbb -m chacha20
