Setting up Yingwa

Just a simple “how-to” on getting started with Yingwa [1] and shadowsocks [2]. As far as I know the software appears to be “clean” from malware – but always be careful, nonetheless.

Here’s how the client looks:

Yingwa01_k0nsl

Yingwa will work as a shell over shadowsocks-go and Privoxy.

You’ll want to install shadowsocks as well, I prefer the Go [3] derivative in place of the Python [4] 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 [5] 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

You needn’t configure anything else. Try visiting something like ipinfo.io and you’ll be see the details of whatever your VPS provides, for me it would look something like this:
Yingwa-ip01_k0nsl

That’s pretty much it, there’s not much else to it really
