V2ray has client softwares that support Windows, Android, Mac, and ios. The parameter configuration is similar. This article uses V2RayN as the client application program for windows computers to explain. The settings of mobile phones and Mac computers should also refer to the settings described below.

Next click "Settings" on the main interface:
Change the local listening port "10808" to "1080"; select "Http proxy" to "only open Http proxy and do nothing"; "Turn on Mux multiplexing" can be ticked (Mux function is in a TCP connection distribute data from multiple TCP connections on the Internet. Mux is designed to reduce the TCP handshake delay, not to increase the throughput of the connection. Using Mux to watch videos, download or measure speed usually has the opposite effect. Mux only needs to be enabled on the client. The server will automatically adapt):
