• Name: dokodemo-door
  • Type: Inbound Protocol

Dokodemo door is an inbound data protocol. It can listen to a local port and send all data entering this port to a port of the designated server, so as to achieve the effect of port mapping.


    "address": "",
    "port": 53,
    "network": "tcp",
    "timeout": 0,
    "followRedirect": false,
    "userLevel": 0

address: address

Forward traffic to this address. It can be an IP address, like "", or a domain name, like "". String type.

When followRedirect (see below) is true, address can be empty.

port: number

Forward traffic to the specified port of the destination address, range [1, 65535], numeric type. Required parameters.

network: "tcp" | "udp" | "tcp,udp"

The type of network protocol that can be received. For example, when it is specified as "tcp", any gate will only receive TCP traffic. The default value is "tcp".

timeout: number

The time limit for inbound data (seconds), the default value is 300.

After V2Ray 3.1 is equivalent to the connIdle strategy corresponding to the user level

followRedirect: true | false

When the value is true, dokodemo-door will recognize the data forwarded by iptables and forward it to the corresponding destination address. For details, see the tproxy setting in Transport Configuration.

userLevel: number

User level, all connections will use this user level.

Transparent proxy configuration example

Add a dokodemo-door inbound protocol in V2Ray:

    "network": "tcp,udp",
    "timeout": 30,
    "followRedirect": true

Configure iptables:

# Create new chain
iptables -t nat -N V2RAY
iptables -t mangle -N V2RAY
iptables -t mangle -N V2RAY_MARK

# Ignore your V2Ray server's addresses
# It's very IMPORTANT, just be careful.
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN

# Ignore LANs and any other addresses you'd like to bypass the proxy
# See Wikipedia and RFC5735 for full list of reserved networks.
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -d -j RETURN

# Anything else should be redirected to Dokodemo-door's local port
iptables -t nat -A V2RAY -p tcp -j REDIRECT --to-ports 12345

# Add any UDP rules
ip route add local default dev lo table 100
ip rule add fwmark 1 lookup 100
iptables -t mangle -A V2RAY -p udp --dport 53 -j TPROXY --on-port 12345 --tproxy-mark 0x01/0x01
iptables -t mangle -A V2RAY_MARK -p udp --dport 53 -j MARK --set-mark 1

# Apply the rules
iptables -t nat -A OUTPUT -p tcp -j V2RAY
iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -j V2RAY
iptables -t mangle -A OUTPUT -j V2RAY_MARK
