CircleCI CirrusCI Depends Release Hackage License

hprox is a lightweight HTTP/HTTPS proxy server.


  • Basic HTTP proxy functionality.
  • Basic password authentication.
  • Enables TLS encryption, requiring a valid certificate. Supports TLS 1.3 and HTTP/2, also known as SPDY Proxy.
  • TLS SNI validation (blocks all clients with an invalid domain name).
  • Provides a PAC file for seamless client-side configuration, compatible with browsers like Chrome and Firefox.
  • Websocket redirection (compatible with v2ray-plugin).
  • Reverse proxy support (redirects requests to a fallback server).
  • DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) support.
  • naiveproxy compatible padding (HTTP Connect proxy).
  • HTTP/3 (QUIC) support (h3 protocol).
  • ACME http-01 challenge as specified by RFC8555, see acme.sh stateless mode.
  • Designed as a middleware, ensuring compatibility with any Haskell Web Application built using the wai interface. Refer to library documents for details.


hprox is designed to build and function seamlessly on all Unix-like operating systems with GHC support, as well as on Windows environments.

stack is recommended for building hprox.

stack setup
stack install

Alternatively, you have the option to utilize the statically linked binary available in the latest release.


Utilize hprox --help to view a comprehensive list of options along with detailed explanations.

  • To run hprox on port 8080 with simple password authentication (passwords will be Argon2-hashed after first run):
echo "user:pass" > userpass.txt
hprox -p 8080 -a userpass.txt
  • To run hprox with TLS encryption on port 443, with a certificate for example.com obtained with acme.sh:
hprox -p 443 -s example.com:$HOME/.acme.sh/example.com/fullchain.cer:$HOME/.acme.sh/example.com/example.com.key

Browsers can be configured with the PAC file URL https://example.com/.hprox/config.pac.

  • For integration with v2ray-plugin and a fallback page to the Ubuntu archive:
v2ray-plugin -server -localPort 8080 -mode websocket -host example.com -remotePort xxxx
hprox -p 443 -s example.com:fullchain.pem:privkey.pem --ws --rev archive.ubuntu.com:80

Clients can establish connections using the plugin option tls;host=example.com.

  • Enable HTTP/3 (QUIC) on UDP port 8443, enable DoH support (redirect to, and add naiveproxy compatible padding:
hprox -p 443 -q 8443 -s example.com:fullchain.pem:privkey.pem -a userpass.txt --naive --doh

Then DoH can be accessed at https://example.com/dns-query.
