Install and Configuring Windows V2Ray VPN Client Application

V2Ray Core + V2RayA - Linux V2Ray VPN Client

You can follow the simple steps below to utilize V2Ray Core and V2RayA, import your V2Ray VPN Profiles, and enjoy surfing the internet with speed, security, and privacy.


  1. Install both applications on your Linux machine. You can download the binaries from their website or GitHub or run this simple script to install the latest versions for you. You must run this script as root to be able to install the packages. You can do that with the following command line: chmod +x install-v2ray.sh; sudo ./install-v2ray.sh

  2. The service starts the V2RayA service automatically; if you are installing them manually, please run these commands in your terminal: sudo bash -c "systemctl start v2raya.service && systemctl enable v2raya.service".

  3. Now you can access V2RayA via http://127.0.0.1:2017.

  4. Create a user with a strong password for your client application; this is only used for accessing the V2RayA web interface.

  5. Now, you can import your connection profiles or subscriptions by copying them, then clicking on the "Import" on the top right and pasting them. Lastly, click on "confirm" to save them.

  6. Once you import all of the profiles, you can select any connection profile by switching between subscription and server tabs. The selected profile will be highlighted after selection.

  7. Click on the menu icon on the top right, then click on Setting.

  8. Check the configuration settings to ensure they are correct, and click on "Save and Apply".

  9. Select all profiles, click "PING" to find the best server with the lowest latency, de-select all, and select the best server you want to connect to.

  10. On the top left, click "Ready" to connect to the VPN server, and it will change to "Running" once it's connected.

  11. To use the tunnel globally, you need to set the socks proxy on as the system proxy on Linux; click on the settings and then click on "Address and Ports" to get the local proxy address and ports.

  12. Click on your network and then settings. Click on the setting icon in the network proxy section, then enter the address and port number for the socks proxy that you got in the previous step. Later, you can disable the global tunneling by returning to this section and changing the network proxy setting to "Disabled".

  13. To confirm your connection, you can visit iplocation.io and check your IP.
