Additional Tips

Modes

Global (System Proxy) - Proxies all apps that use the system proxy settings (like web browsers). Some apps need to be configured to use the system proxy.

Global (TUN/TAP) - Proxies all websites and apps through WannaFlix. Good for games, VoIP, and Video Conference, as well as web-browsing, Netflix, Youtube, etc.

Global (Non System Proxy) - Starts a SOCKS5 and HTTP server on 2 ports but does not enable the system proxy settings. Only apps that you specifically tell to use the proxy will use WannaFlix's servers.

Bypass LAN and China (System Proxy) - Proxies all apps that use the system proxy settings (like web browsers), EXCEPT CHINESE WEBSITES AND APPS. Good for those who want to connect to Wechat, Taobao, and other Chinese websites and apps directly.

Bypass LAN and China (TUN/TAP) - Proxies all websites and apps through WannaFlix, EXCEPT CHINESE WEBSITES AND APPS. Good for those who want to connect to Wechat, Taobao, and other Chinese websites and apps directly.

Bypass LAN and China (Non System Proxy) - Starts a SOCKS5 and HTTP server on 2 ports but does not enable the system proxy settings. Only apps that you specifically tell to use the proxy AND THAT ARE NOT CHINESE WEBSITES AND APPS will use WannaFlix's servers.

Other Modes - You will find that all the other modes are mainly for gaming. These modes only proxy the selected game via WannaFlix's servers and leave the rest unchanged. These modes are only present on the Github version of Netch. We've removed it for ease of use and not to confuse anyone.

We recommend the Global (System Proxy) mode for those who don't have special needs.

If you want to play games or use video-conferencing, please use the Global (TUN/TAP) mode instead.

Troubleshooting

Servers don't connect

If you're using the TUN/TAP mode, try disconnecting and reconnecting. If it still fails, try switching to the System Proxy mode instead.

If the issue still persists, check your computer time. For v2ray servers, you computer time must be within 90 seconds of the correct time. If it's not, either sync your time with the internet, or adjust it to the correct time in the computer's settings.
