Q: How can I setup my own MTProto Proxy server?

All you need is a cheap Virtual Private server (VPS) with an OS such as on CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu with root access.
I suggest an OpenVZ VPS from:
RamNode 128MB OpenVZ VPS (New York) – $15/yr
– OR –
HostUs 512MB OpenVZ VPS (Amsterdam) – $18.95/yr

Installation

Login to your server shell via SSH.

Install Rust

Install mtproxy package

Make sure you have already GCC compiler installed.

Run mtproxy in background

Generate a random seed for proxy secret:

SEED: Generated seed.
PORT: Your desired port. Default is 1984.

It will provide you a secret which is needed on the client side.
If you have a firewall on your server, you may need to open that port.

Configure Your Telegram Client Quickly

All you need is to put your own server IP, port and secret in below link:
https://t.me/proxy?server=IP&port=PORT&secret=SECRET

Make sure you have the latest version of Telegram client on your device.

Shadowsocks is a secure and lightweight socks5 proxy for embedded devices and low-end boxes, designed to protect your Internet traffic.
The benefit of Shadowsocks is that it works very well on un-stable Internet connections.
It has different versions written in C, Python and Go. I recommend the libev version written in C because it has low memory usage (around 600k) and low CPU consumption.

You need to run a secret code but Samsung has prevented you to run it from the phone Dialer, so you need to root your phone and manually execute the command.
