Connect to VPN Gate via Shadowsocks?

Hey friends,

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?

Any ideas?

I ended up installing openvpn client on my VPS and connecting it to VPN Gate servers. Works like a charm!!!

Big thanks to VPN Gate project!!!

Any further idea is still welcome, though.
