First start Server on your vps

You need a server outside the firewall to run V2Ray on the server side. The configuration is as follows:

    "inbounds": [
            "port": 10086, // server listening port
            "protocol": "vmess",
            "settings": {
                "clients": [
                        "id": "b831381d-6324-4d53-ad4f-8cda48b30811"
    "outbounds": [
            "protocol": "freedom"
