How can I run hummingbird over SSH or SSL?

Recommended Posts

I get much higher download speeds for some operations when I configure Eddie to run over SSH. However, Eddie is buggy and keeps crashing. Also, hummingbird is faster to connect. How can I run hummingbird over SSH?

I did look into running OpenVPN over SSH, but the instructions are confusing. The instructions say to type at the command line:

openvpn "AirVPN <..> - SSH <..>.ovpn"

But I have no idea what that should look like as a concrete example. What do I replace the first

No idea what your OS is, so: Meh.

The command is openvpn, the only argument is in " " which in this naming scheme is a file from the generator. The <…> are dynamic, the file will be named according to your choices in the generator. First is the location/server, second is the port. Shouldn't be confusing.

As per the instructions, first execute the Batch or Shell file. This will connect to an AirVPN server via SSH. In a second terminal connect with OpenVPN to the local stunnel instance.
