A anti-censorship HTTP proxy with builtin shadowsocks support.

Current Version: 4.16

Tested on Windows 7 and Windows 10.


Quick Start

Set parent proxy

Add your own parent proxy in the parents section of main configuration file userconf.ini.

It looks like this:

shadowsocks = ss://aes-256-cfb:password@
shadowsocks_with_OTA = ss://aes-256-cfb-auth:password@
shadowsocks_with_header_obfs = ss://aes-256-cfb:password@

or this:

proxy1 = http://user:pass@
proxy2 = socks5://

# connect to '' via 'socks5://'
proxy3 =|socks5://

Set browser

Set your browser's proxy setting to

On Windows, this should be done automatically.


For Windows, run FWLite.exe

For Linux and Mac, run python2 /path_to/fwlite/FWLite.pyw

Run in command-line:

python2.7 /path_to/fwlite/fgfw-lite/

User Defined Rules(./fgfw-lite/local.txt)

FW-Lite uses autoproxy rules, the differences are:

URL end with keyword:



Redirect with Regular Expression

/^*wd=([^&]*).*$/ /\1&ie=gb2312/

Not applying rules for certain sites. For false positives in gfwlist.

|| auto


| forcehttps

Block certain sites

|| 403

Bad 302 Redirect, counteract ISP conducted MITM hijack(GWBN):

|http://some.isp.server/ bad302

Assign a parent proxy for certain sites
