Tips and tricks

Routing rules

See Routing and Routing of V2Ray .

The preset routing rule files are geosite.dat and geoip.dat in /usr/share/v2ray. They are provided by the v2ray-domain-list-community and v2ray-geoip packages respectively. These two packages are installed by default as dependencies of v2ray.

Replacing the preset routing rule files

There are ready-made packages for some routing rule files. For example, you can install the v2ray-rules-dat-gitAUR package for @Loyalsoldier/v2ray-rules-dat.

For routing rule files without ready-made packages, you can create packages and install or remove v2ray-domain-list-community and v2ray-geoip without removing the dependent package and put the routing rule files in the /usr/share/v2ray directory.

Warning: Replacing geosite.dat and geoip.dat directly may cause file conflicts.

Troubleshooting

Failed with result 'exit-code'

If you see this error in the log: Failed with result 'exit-code', it is because V2Ray does not have write permission to /var/log/v2ray/access.log. Use the following command to solve the problem.

chown -R nobody /var/log/v2ray
