    Enable System Proxy
    menu to enable system proxy. Please disable other proxy addons in your browser, or set them to use system proxy

PAC

  • The PAC rules are generated from the geosite database in v2fly/domain-list-community.
  • Generation modes: whitelist mode and blacklist mode.
  • Domain groups:
    geositeDirectGroups
    and
    geositeProxiedGroups
    .
    • geositeDirectGroups
      is initialized with
      cn
      and
      [email protected]
      .
    • geositeProxiedGroups
      is initialized with
      geolocation-!cn
      .
  • To switch between different modes, modify the
    geositePreferDirect
    property in
    gui-config.json
    • When
      geositePreferDirect
      is false (default), PAC works in whitelist mode. Exception rules are generated from
      geositeDirectGroups
      . Unmatched domains goes through the proxy.
    • When
      geositePreferDirect
      is true, PAC works in blacklist mode. Blocking rules are generated from
      geositeProxiedGroups
      . Exception rules are generated from
      geositeDirectGroups
      . Unmatched domains are connected to directly.
  • Starting from 4.3.0.0, shadowsocks-windows defaults to whitelist mode with Chinese domains excluded from connecting via the proxy.
  • The new default values make sure that:
    • When in whitelist mode, Chinese domains, including non-Chinese companies' Chinese CDNs, are connected to directly.
    • When in blacklist mode, only non-Chinese domains goes through the proxy. Chinese domains, as well as non-Chinese companies' Chinese CDNs, are connected to directly.

User-defined rules

  • To define your own PAC rules, it's recommended to use the
    user-rule.txt
    file.
  • You can also modify
    pac.txt
    directly. But your modifications won't persist after updating geosite from the upstream.

For Windows10 Store and related applications, please execute the following command under Admin privilege:

netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie

Server Auto Switching

  1. Load balance: choosing server randomly
  2. High availability: choosing the best server (low latency and packet loss)
  3. Choose By Total Package Loss: ping and choose. Please also enable
    Availability Statistics
    in the menu if you want to use this
  4. Write your own strategy by implement IStrategy interface and send us a pull request!

UDP

For UDP, you need to use SocksCap or ProxyCap to force programs you want to be proxied to tunnel over Shadowsocks

Multiple Instances

If you want to manage multiple servers using other tools like SwitchyOmega, you can start multiple Shadowsocks instances. To avoid configuration conflicts, copy Shadowsocks to a new directory and choose a different local port.

Plugins

If you would like to connect to server via a plugin, please set the plugin's path (relative or absolute) on Edit Servers form. Note: Forward Proxy will not be used while a plugin is enabled.

Details: Working with non SIP003 standard Plugin.
