       Obfs-simple is a very simple obfuscating tunnel tool.

       Obfs-simple is written in pure C and takes advantage of libev to achieve both high
       performance and low resource consumption.

       Obfs-simple consists of two components. obfs-local(1) works as a standard tunnel on local
       machines to obfuscate TCP traffic.


       -s <server_host>
           Set the server’s hostname or IP.

       -p <server_port>
           Set the server’s port number.

       -l <local_port>
           Set the local port number.

       -a <user_name>
           Run as a specific user.

       -f <pid_file>
           Start obfs-simple as a daemon with specific pid file.

       -t <timeout>
           Set the socket timeout in seconds. The default value is 60.

       -c <config_file>
           Use a configuration file.

       -n <number>
           Specify max number of open files.

           Only available on Linux.

       -i <interface>
           Send traffic through specific network interface.

           For example, there are three interfaces in your device, which is lo (, eth0
           ( and eth1 ( Meanwhile, you configure obfs-local to listen on
  and bind to eth1. That results the traffic go out through eth1, but not
           lo nor eth0. This option is useful to control traffic in multi-interface environment.

       -b <local_address>
           Specify local address to bind.

           Resovle hostname to IPv6 address first.

           Enable TCP fast open.

           Only available with Linux kernel > 3.7.0.

           Enable Multipath TCP.

           Only available with MPTCP enabled Linux kernel.

       --obfs <http|tls>
           Enable HTTP or TLS obfuscating. (Experimental)

       --obfs-host <hostname>
           Specify the hostname for obfuscating. (Experimental)

           Enable verbose mode.

           Print help message.


       obfs-local(1) can be started from command line and run in foreground. Here is an example:

           # Start obfs-local with given parameters
           obfs-local -s -p 12345 -l 1080 --obfs http --obfs-host
