Lede and Shadowsocks


I am unable to use shadowsocks on Lede. I have installed shadowsocks, chinadns, luci-app-shadowsocks, and from openwrt-dist and followed this guide.

I am unable to start shadowsocks via the LUCI app and must start it from the command line. I am able to start it from the command line and there are no error messages seen in the terminal.

When trying to browse to a restricted site the page times out.

I have verified the shadowsocks authentification details I am using are correct.

Lede version is 17.01.4, r3560-79f57e422d
Router is Linksys WRT1900 ACS

If anyone can offer any advice it would be much appreciated.

May need to set up a cron job to start it.

You might try using Fiddler or Wireshark to see what is happening with the packets when the page times out.

After uninstalling and reinstalling shadowsocks-libev and luci-app-shadowsocks I am able to turn on and off shadowsocks from Luci. It seems I had the wrong version of the Luci app installed.

However I am still not able to access the internet via shadowsocks.

Can anyone confirm my configuration files appear correct?

Here (pastebin) is my config for Shadowsocks. Here the config for DHCP.

I used wireshark to capture packets but I must admit I don't know what I'm looking for.

What happened to the package "shadowsocks-libev"?

Getting an error when I try to install it...

root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install shadowsocks-libev
Unknown package 'shadowsocks-libev'.
Collected errors:
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package shadowsocks-libev.

Are you using the latest (18.06.x)? (if not, consider updating)

Shadowsocks is now installed by component level packages as follows:

root@OpenWRT:~# opkg list | grep shadowsocks

Note that shadowsocks-client is another ss client providing only ss-local functionality. The package is not actively maintained and will not appear in the next release.

You are using luci-app-shadowsocks from https://github.com/shadowsocks/luci-app-shadowsocks which is different app from the one in https://github.com/openwrt/luci/tree/master/applications/luci-app-shadowsocks-libev

Please open an issue in project page of shadowsocks/luci-app-shadowsocks . Thank you
