Subject description: make it more difficult to detect OpenVPN usage
 

https://www.mullvad.net/guides/socks5-proxy/


SOCKS5 proxies have multiple uses, including

improving the killswitch
making it more difficult to detect OpenVPN usage
reducing the amount of CAPTCHAs.


I have to cope with CAPTCHAs a number of time in a day , to the point it is as annoying as publicity. If you have same problem, there is a solution with Firefox. You can also use it when you are blocked from browsing the internet because of your using openvpn, such as in a public library.

Firefox – newer versions

In the Firefox menu, click on Edit (on some operating systems, click Tools).
Click on Preferences (on some operating systems, click Options).
Scroll down to Network Proxy.
Click on Settings.
Select Manual proxy configuration.
Make sure HTTP/SSL and FTP proxy fields are empty.
In the SOCKS Host: field, enter 10.8.0.1 with port 1080.
Click on SOCKS v5 and enable Remote DNS or tick Proxy DNS when using SOCKS v5.
Click on OK.
To disable, go to step #5 and change the setting to No Proxy.

Try using our SOCKS5 proxies, for some downloads they can increase download speed by quite a significant bit.
