One way to share psiphon with other people is to tether your phone to a WIFI hotspot. First, you must configure the WIFI hotspot to its default security settings. Then, open psiphon on your mobile device and browse the internet. After connecting to the hotspot, psiphon will start to look for available connections.
Using a local proxy
If you are not able to use Psiphon through a hotspot, you can tether your phone to a Wi-Fi network and then use a simple server to share the app. First, open Internet Explorer, and click the options menu. Then, click the “Manually fix proxy settings” button and uncheck the box next to “Use a local proxy server”. Alternatively, you can install a VPN application.
If this method is not possible, you may be facing compatibility issues. Windows has introduced the Metro interface, also known as the Modern UI. In Windows 8.1, some applications are built to run in this mode, including Internet Explorer. Using a local proxy or Psiphon isn’t possible on Metro-based operating systems, so you will need to install an app called EnableLoopback Utility on your device and connect to it again.
Windows users can turn off the automatic system proxy by setting a registry value called SkipProxySettings in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwarePsiphon3. If the registry key is not set to 0, the Psiphon client will discover a new server for you. If a new server doesn’t exist, the client will automatically detect a new one and use the settings that are stored there. If this doesn’t work, you can use a different server. If Psiphon doesn’t detect a server, use a local HTTP proxy instead.
Once you have installed the Psiphon application on your main phone, you can set it up on your secondary device. Just make sure that you use an authentic copy. Make sure to provide details about how you obtained your copy. Also, share the Psiphon executable on the secondary device. This will ensure that your secondary device can access the Internet without any trouble. If your main phone becomes hacked or you find yourself blocked while browsing the web, you can always manually download an updated version from a third party.
Configuring a local SOCKS proxy
In order to configure your PC to use a local SOCKS proxy, you can access the Internet Options applet from the Control Panel. If you’re using a GNOME desktop, click the System Settings > Networking menu. For KDE, use the System Preferences > Networking menu. Select the Advanced Networking tab and find Proxies. Click on the SOCKS Proxy option. Type the port number and host in the respective fields. Once you’ve configured the proxy, you’re ready to connect to the internet.
Besides being able to configure Psiphon to work on a Windows PC, you can also configure Psiphon to run on an Android device. Depending on the OS, you can choose between a SOCKS proxy or HTTP/HTTPS proxy. For Android devices, you can also choose whether to use the system proxy settings. You can manually configure other applications to use local proxies.
A SOCKS proxy is a great choice for sharing an internet connection between multiple devices. It works in exactly the same way as a HTTP proxy, with a single exception: it cannot interpret traffic. Instead, it allows users to access content that is blocked on their mobile devices. So, if you want to share Psiphon via hotspot, you should use a SOCKS proxy.
Configuring a local HTTP/HTTPS proxy
You’ve probably tried connecting to Psiphon’s servers in other countries, but your connection has been slow or you’re seeing a lot of ads. If this is the case, you can use obfuscation technologies to overcome this. However, you may experience some disconnections when using Psiphon on a hotspot. To fix this, you can try to disable the “Use a proxy server for your LAN” checkbox. If you’re using a home router, you may need to enable passthrough for IPsec and L2TP protocols. If the latter option is enabled, the IPsec Services need to be started automatically.
To configure the local HTTP/HTTPS proxy used by Psiphon on a hotspot, you need to edit the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USERsoftwarePsiphon. In this registry key, locate the value of SkipProxySettings. Then, set this key to 1 to prevent Psiphon from using the system proxy settings. You can also manually configure the proxy settings on other applications.
Next, you need to change the port and host address of your proxy. Make sure you specify the port and authentication type and enter your username and password. Then, you should be able to open Psiphon using the built-in web browser. Of course, this browser is very basic. If you have a wireless connection, you can still use the built-in Psiphon browser, but it will not be as good as the one available on the desktop.
Once you’ve installed Psiphon on your Windows computer, it will begin to connect to the Internet automatically. You can verify this by double-clicking the Psiphon file. When you’re connected, Psiphon will connect to the server and launch the sponsor page, and all your browser traffic will be tunneled through the Psiphon network. You can disconnect a Psiphon client by clicking on the main settings page. This main settings page displays an overview of the different settings available. Expanding each section shows how to make changes to your Psiphon client.
Using a local SOCKS proxy without rooting your device
Using a local SOCKS proxy is a very easy way to share Psiphon with other devices without having to enable wifi hotspot on your mobile device. Simply enter the IP address and port of a running proxy server, and your other devices should be able to connect to it. You can read an example of how to do this on an Android device here.
One of the main advantages of using Psiphon is that it is completely anonymous. In addition, it allows you to use the built-in web browser, save bookmarks, customize your startup page, and perform all other features of a regular browser. You can even browse websites on different networks and devices simultaneously using Psiphon!
Once your device is rooted, open Settings > General and then click on the proxy settings. Psiphon will automatically configure a proxy based on your current settings. You can choose to use an HTTP proxy, or use a different proxy if you prefer. This way, you can control exactly how Psiphon traffic is routed.
While there are many other reasons why it may not work properly, the most common problem is inconsistent internet connection. This may be caused by unreliable Wi-Fi or reception. In such cases, a local SOCKS proxy won’t be effective. In such a scenario, you should try connecting to another Psiphon server in another country.
