I usually get my laptop to bypass GFW by connecting it to an American VPS server via shadowsocks.
Recently I need to check out some anime on Nicovideo that are blocked for non-Japanese IPs,
and this VPN Gate service looks promising.
However, I cannot directly connect to these VPN servers from my laptop because of the GFW,
and I realize that somehow I need to use my shadowsocks together with VPN Gate to get things to work.
But I am not quite sure how exactly this should be carried out. In particular, should I
(1) configure my VPS (which runs ubuntu without a GUI) to be a VPN client,
(2) massage with the network settings on my own laptop in some clever way,
without affecting the VPS?
