I am having small issue with shadowsocks-qt5 (no longer maintained) proxy software, memory usage seems high.
So i was checking for an alternative and seen @Twifty mentioned v2ray (platform for building proxies, may be faster than SS), installed the package using “pamac install v2ray”, found how to create .json config files per Install · Project V Official and include it as a -c parameter, but it does not seem to have GUI or not running as a service. So i guess i would have to manually setup cronjob/monitoring script or somehow discover how to setup the service and keep it always running. :-/
V2Ray - ArchWiki
Install · Project V Official
Installation | V2Ray Beginner's Guide
(not sure the difference between fly and ray, it is a mess)
there are some install scripts too:
- GitHub - v2fly/fhs-install-v2ray: Bash script for installing V2Ray in operating systems such as Debian / CentOS / Fedora / openSUSE that support systemd
- https://git.io/v2ray.sh (mentioned at How to Setup your own V2Ray – A Step by Step Guide – Privacy Melon )
so the questions is how to properly install Manjaro client and on Ubuntu or CentOS the server as a non stop running service. Anyone have opinion about this or even experience to share how to proceed?
As an alternative to shadowsocks/VPN i was also checking https://getoutline.org (in AUR i have found outline-client-appimage).
