Using IP authenticated proxies
In case you have proxies, which are authenticated by an IP address, this page will guide how to implement them in a Muliloginapp session. Before you start, make sure you have 4 things (if you don’t, ask your proxy service provider):
- Proxy type (SOCKS4, SOCKS5, HTTP/s)
- Proxy host/address
- Proxy port
- You have authenticated your IP address in the dashboard of your current proxy service provider (ask your provider for more details).
Once you know all of the above mentioned things, you are ready to get started.
- Add a browser profile
- In “Proxy settings” choose the type of proxy you are using
- Insert host and port of the proxy (e.g. host: 12.123.455.12 and port: 8100)
- Keep the Username and Password fields empty
- Turn ON the function of “Verify proxy outgoing IP” – this function will launch the browser session only if you are securely connected to the proxy. Note: back-connect or super proxies will not work with this feature turned on.
- Configure the browser profile, selecting options that you need
- Save the browser profile
- Launch the browser profile and verify if the IP address is the proxy you inserted
Dealing with Dynamic and Changing IP addresses
Note: this method is particularly useful, if you are planning to share sessions with virtual assistants, clients, partners or friends.
The above mentioned setup works very well if you have a static IP address, your are using only one computer and Internet connection. However, you may want the browser profiles to be accessed by your your assistants, clients and other people. Furthermore, you may have a dynamic IP address, which means your will have different IP addresses over time. In both cases you will have to be authenticating any inbound IP address of your assitants, clients and other people in the dashboard of your current proxy service provider, in order for all of you to access that particular session. Although, this is an option for some people, it won’t applicable for others.
The solution to the problem is Dynamic DNS.
The way it works is that your computer will have a unique domain. That unique domain will have your current IP address associated with it. The program, which you install on a computer, where you will be accessing your proxies from, will be constantly updating your current IP address to the domain name. Then, you authenticate your domain name in the dashboard of your current proxy service provider (ask your provider for more details). Now in every point in time your current proxy provider will know your current IP address and by authenticating it, you can access that proxy. In a nutshell, it’s an automatic IP updater.
There are plenty of Dynamic DNS service providers on the Internet and each and one them have their own setup process.
