I have tried using Psiphon through Wine but it didn't work.
Please tell me how I can install it using terminal step-by-step.


Take a look for this link, it should works for ubuntu using wine http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1926

Install wine

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install wine

Install Required Windows DLLs using Wintricks:

  • Run Winetricks(from ubuntu dash)
  • Choose "Select the default wineprefix" and then press OK.
  • Choose "Install a Windows DLL or component" and then press OK.
  • Check "wininet" and "winhttp" and then press OK.

Run Psiphon3 and Use the service it provides:

  • Simply run Psipon3.exe
  • It will provide its service using an "HTTP proxy on localhost port 8080".
  • Use "FoxyProxy" extension on Firefox or "Proxy SwitchySharp" extension on chrome for accessing the service.

Windows version of Psiphon on wine does not work. Instead of using wine, use native psiphon script for linux.

This linux version by Psiphon Inc. is much better and multifunctional than the windows one.

Here is the simplified,re-shared, modified version of psiphon. Readme contains a simple step by step guide for running psiphon through terminal.

Git Repo : https://github.com/thispc/psiphon

Clone the repo to get started.

$ git clone https://github.com/thispc/psiphon.git

$ cd psiphon

Open README.md for instructions.

Please ask in case of queries.

    How can you say this version if produced by Psiphon Inc. this is not their Github account ... this readme also ask to re-compile openssh, how can I trust this code ? – Postadelmaga Feb 26 '17 at 17:39
  • I've completed all the steps mentioned in README.md and it runs without giving any errors. Can you explain how can I direct network traffic of a specific program through psiphon? – saga Mar 10 '17 at 19:46
  • @saga you can use redsocks for redirecting all traffic through a particular socks proxy port, to create a system wide proxy. link – Pulkit Chawla Apr 10 '17 at 14:41

For the moment the only solution is use the phone as proxy using ssh.
