Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade netch -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade netch -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install netch
  win_chocolatey:
    name: netch
    version: '1.8.7'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

See docs at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/modules/win_chocolatey_module.html.


chocolatey_package 'netch' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '1.8.7'
end

See docs at https://docs.chef.io/resource_chocolatey_package.html.


cChocoPackageInstaller netch
{
    Name     = "netch"
    Version  = "1.8.7"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at https://github.com/chocolatey/cChoco.

Description

Netch is an open source game accelerator. Unlike SSTap, which needs to add rules to function as a blacklist proxy, Netch is more similar to Sockscap64, which can scan the game directory to get their process names specifically and forward their network traffic through the proxy server. Now supports Socks5, Shadowsocks, ShadowsocksR, Vmess.

As well, Netch avoid the restricted NAT problem caused by SSTap[1]. You can use an NATTypeTester[2] to test out what your NAT type is. When using SSTap to speed up some P2P gaming connections or the game is required for that kind of open NAT type, you may experience some bad situations such as unable to join the game.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
