In order to be able to obfuscate the VPN connection, you need to download, run and configure the shapeshifter-dispatcher command line proxy tool.
Type the following in the Terminal window:wget -O Shapeshifter-dispatcher-macOS.tar.gz "https://billing.smartydns.com/dl.php?type=d&id=12"; gtar -xvf Shapeshifter-dispatcher-macOS.tar.gz; cd Shapeshifter-dispatcher/macOS
Type the following:sudo su
Press Return, enter your password and press Return.
Now we will set up which VPN server will be obfuscated.
Type ./start-macos64.sh followed by the IP address of the VPN server you want to use. For example:./start-macos64.sh 18.104.22.168
You can find the whole list in Settings -> VPN Servers in your account on our website.
This will start the local client running in transparent TCP proxy mode and obfs4 transport which hides OpenVPN traffic.
Don’t close this window as long as you need to be connected to VPN.
To use obfuscation, you need to connect to VPN using the Tunnelblick app.
