Full Description


docker-shadowsocks is a Shadowsocks boxed in a Docker image built by Tommy Lau.

Update on July 16, 2016

From now on, the Alpine Linux will be used as the base image. The docker image size has been dramatically reduced from around 200MB to only 16MB! The old image used Debian package, and the new one is compiled from the source, so it will alwasy be updated to the latest version of Shadowsocks-libev.

NOTICE: You have to use Docker version 1.9.0 or later to support Alpine, DO NOT UPDATE the image if your Docker version is older than 1.9.0

What is Shadowsocks?

Shadowsocks is a fast tunnel proxy that helps you bypass firewalls.

What's included?

The latest shadowsocks-libev from official release and nothing more.

How to use this image

Get the docker image by running the following commands:

docker pull tommylau/shadowsocks

Start an ocserv instance:

docker run  --name=[name] -p [port]:[port] -d tommylau/shadowsocks -s -p [port] -k [password] -m [method]
  • name is used to identify the containers (optional)
  • port is the port you want the server to listen.
