Title: OpenVPN Obfuscate
Post by: Taomyn on August 20, 2018, 10:33:09 am
Is there a way to set up OpenVPN obfuscate? I saw an old thread alluding that it's possible but no instructions anywhere.

You can use shadowsocks, but you need a public server to connect to.

Thanks, but I want to be running it all myself

Is the OpenVPN server also OPNsense and under your control?

Yes, it's my firewall, that's what I was asking to set it up on -sorry if that wasn't clear. I have a compatible client and a need to start using it. Could do it by creating an internal Obfsproxy server, but that just makes it more complex, not that it couldn't be done.

I only know the way via Shadow .. thought the other one requires a patch

As far as I know any SOCKS proxy works.

Ah ok thanks, care to recommend any documentation on setting this up or is it already in OPNsense somewhere?

Actually, just spotted the "shadowproxy" plug-in on the firewall, so will play with that and see what I can achieve.


Thanks again.

OpenVPN XOR should still work...

... simply add it to the Advanced Options for client and server.


Cheers,

@franco the most extreme way to hide OpenVPN on OPNsense is per TOR using stealth hidden services ;)
