Hysteria² (client/server internet proxy)

#1 Post by Midas »

While I haven't tested it and don't fully grasp typical use-cases, Hysteria² looked interesting and portable enough (both the server and client instances) as an anti-censorship tool to warrant a tentative post here at TPFC.
Hysteria² is a powerful, lightning fast and censorship resistant proxy [... with] expansive range of modes including SOCKS5, HTTP proxy, TCP/UDP forwarding, [&] Linux TProxy. [...] Our protocol is designed to masquerade as standard HTTP/3 traffic.

Hysteria² is available for Windows (with both 32 and 64-bit ready-made binaries), macOS, Linux, Android, FreeBSD and as MIT-licensed open-source with code on GitHub.

Windows portability seems a given, since all settings are stored in Hysteria² program folder:
Assuming you have already downloaded the executable for your platform into a directory [...] create a 'config.yaml' file in the same directory.
Assuming you have already downloaded the executable for your platform into a directory [...] create a 'config.yaml' file in the same directory.

If a YAML configuration file appears daunting at first sight, Hysteria² will also gladly accept JSON or TOML alternates -- and the later is very much like our well-known INI format:
Even though our documentation uses YAML, Hysteria² has full support for JSON and TOML as well.

config.toml

Code: Select all

server = "your.server.net"
auth = "i_still_love_tom"
fastOpen = true
lazy = true

[bandwidth]
up = "30 mbps"
down = "100 mbps"

[socks5]
listen = "127.0.0.1:1080"

[http]
listen = "127.0.0.1:8080"

Pre-requisites for server installation are public IP/domain addresses; clients only need an Hysteria² server to connect to, on top of the underlying connection...

Hysteria² latest release is v2.1.1 (downloads at homepage or at https://github.com/apernet/hysteria/releases/; official changelog is at https://hysteria.network/docs/Changelog/).
