How Psiphon Pro VPN Works

It is very easy to install the Psiphon program. The small-sized program doesn’t require a long process to install. You can double click on it and it’ll launch or right-click and run as administrator.

Psiphon VPN starts connecting automatically when you run the program displaying a spinning icon showing that it’s connecting. When it’s connecting, you have a few options to choose from. You can choose VPN (L2TP over IPSec), SSH or SSH+. You can only choose one connection at a time.

While spinning and the red icon has not changed to green it means that you have not connected and you will not be able to choose a fast country to connect with if you choose VPN over SSH and SSH+. When you choose VPN, you allow the Psiphon app to tunnel all your traffic through the software mapping to a different location.

The SSH and the SSH+ mode is different. This means that you want the Psiphon software to set up a proxy on your Windows. You can even configure your proxy settings using a known IP and port number.

Once you are done setting Psiphon with a proxy, it will automatically tunnel all traffic through the Psiphon. Note, if you want to use the Psiphon proxy settings with browsers you have to instruct it in your configuration.

Another advantage of SSH and SSH+ modes is that the Psiphon Pro program split traffic source so that when you are accessing an international site it will tunnel it through Psiphon and when you are surfing a local website, it will leave it as a local traffic and you can monitor this in the software log option.

Meanwhile, to use split tunnel you must enable “Don’t proxy domestic websites” You can check the list of domain names that you accessed through Psiphon tunnel and those that are not proxied.

When you close the program clicking on the red icon to the top right the program will stop and you will be disconnected. However, in other not to close the Psiphon software, whether Psiphon 3 or Psiphon pro, enable minimize option in the settings area.

Split Tunnels

You use split tunnels when you choose SSH or SSH+ over VPN. The split tunnels forced the Psiphon program to tunnel all international traffic via Psiphon and leave local traffic. This means that when you are visiting local traffic you IP will not be masked. And for international traffic, your IP will be uncensored.

To enable split tunnels, go to settings and click on split tunnels. Enable “Don’t proxy websites within your country” and click apply changes.

Upstream Proxy

Upstream proxy helps you to override a pre-configured proxy server. Such as, if you have a proxy server that you have pre-configured on your browser and you don’t want to use it, you have to specify it in the upstream proxy so that the proxy will be ignored when splitting tunnel on Psiphon pro

Do not forget to click on apply changes when you are done configuring your upstream proxy.
