Just a simple “how-to” on getting started with Yingwa  and shadowsocks . As far as I know the software appears to be “clean” from malware – but always be careful, nonetheless.
Here’s how the client looks:
Yingwa will work as a shell over shadowsocks-go and Privoxy.
You’ll want to install shadowsocks as well, I prefer the Go  derivative in place of the Python  one.
Read the relevant installation instructions for either of these and find out which one is more suitable for you: it’s all very easy to set up – even for a person with only limited *nix skills. All you need is a virtual private server  that preferably has multiple locations; see the previous reference for several ones that I can wholeheartedly recommend.
Once you’ve set up shadowsocks/go on your virtual private server you’ll need to just fill out the relevant details in the Yingwa client:
Server IP: IP OF YOUR VPS
Server Port: THIS MUST BE ‘server_port’ and not ‘local_port’ as per shadowsocks configuration
Password: YOUR PASSWORD
Encryption: YOUR CHOICE OF ENCRYPTION
That’s pretty much it, there’s not much else to it really
