I got my own server somewhere out there in the free internet, and I would like to connect to it via obfs4 and use it as proxy to circumvent local censorship. As far as I know, obfs4 requires a tor bridge. When I try to start it directly:
[ERROR]: obfs4proxy - must be run as a managed transport
So now I have my private tor bridge, and can connect through this to the tor network. But actually, I do not need the "Tor" part of it ... I trust my server, and I would prefer higher speed and no restrictions on commercial servers because of a tor ip address.
Do I have to recompile the source to allow single SingleHop Connections? How am I supposed to use obfs4 standalone?
edit: Can I use it, by just having a second server (maybe even a virtual machine) and forward the tor traffic through a "private tor network"? Is obfs4 actually any better than scramblesuit for proxy purposes?
