Little Happy Cloud NAT IPv4 and proxy questions

Only recently I discovered these mini VPS's and with these prices I can't wait to have a server to play around with for myself.

I do have some questions about the mini VPS's listed on http://littlehappycloud.net/ though:

  • Is it allowed to run an authenticated SOCKS5 server for personal use only (max. a few GB/month traffic)?

  • What OS is reccomended for the smallest (128 or 256) servers? I have some experience with Ubuntu Server (mostly local hobby fun but also tried the free DigitalOcean trial) and also used Ubuntu Desktop occasionally so I would prefer Ubuntu but will x64 Ubuntu run on these small VPS's?

  • NAT IPv4 means I receive 20 ports on a shared IP, right (so no dedicated IP)? Are these 20 ports on the same IPv4 address? Or is it also possible to get ports on multiple IP addresses? I would prefer to receive ports on multiple IP addresses so I can have a single SOCKS proxy server running on multiple IP addresses and I can easily switch between these IP addresses. Is that possible? If not, would it then be possible to order several VPS's and have each VPS on a different (shared) IP? Or would I simply need to order a dedicated IP with each VPS (this would not be very interesting)?

As for the SOCKS5 proxy server itself, any recommendations? I tried Dante (https://www.inet.no/dante/) before on a DigtialOcean VPS and I had that up & running in no time so I figured I would try that first. But I also stumbled upon Shadowsocks (https://shadowsocks.org) which has prebuilt Debian/Ubuntu packages but I have not tried it out, their site looks great and "a small footprint (several megabytes) for thousands of connections" as mentioned on their site sounds like a great solution for these mini VPS's.

Re: Little Happy Cloud NAT IPv4 and proxy questions

Welcome to LES Jant90 i will try to answer question with the information i know

Q:Is it allowed to run an authenticated SOCKS5 server for personal use only (max. a few GB/month traffic)?

yes you can

Q:What OS is reccomended for the smallest (128 or 256) servers? I have some experience with Ubuntu Server (mostly local hobby fun but also tried the free DigitalOcean trial) and also used Ubuntu Desktop occasionally so I would prefer Ubuntu but will x64 Ubuntu run on these small VPS's?

i recommend Ubuntu or debian minimal 64bit, but you run any linux OS in minimal templates And then it comes to personal preference

Q:NAT IPv4 means I receive 20 ports on a shared IP, right (so no dedicated IP)? Are these 20 ports on the same IPv4 address?

yes 20ports in same IP address use use both  UDP and TCP

Q: is it also possible to get ports on multiple IP addresses? I would prefer to receive ports on multiple IP addresses so I can have a single SOCKS proxy server running on multiple IP addresses Is that possible?

i far as i know no you can't get that feature

Q:would it then be possible to order several VPS's and have each VPS on a different (shared) IP? 

yes and no in little happy cloud you can't get that but when order LES bundle you will get multiple location with each you get different ip different ports

Q:would I simply need to order a dedicated IP with each VPS (this would not be very interesting)?

i can't answer that but some one will soon

Q:As for the SOCKS5 proxy server itself, any recommendations? I tried Dante (https://www.inet.no/dante/) before on a DigtialOcean VPS and I had that up & running in no time so I figured I would try that first. But I also stumbled upon Shadowsocks (https://shadowsocks.org) which has prebuilt Debian/Ubuntu packages but I have not tried it out, their site looks great and "a small footprint (several megabytes) for thousands of connections" as mentioned on their site sounds like a great solution for these mini VPS's.

First get a feel for the VPS first then you will decide about that later
