How to connect to a proxy, how to choose a location, how IP addresses are rotated, and much more - in the article about the work of our system.
Our clients connect through nodes (real devices - laptops, smartphones, etc.). The IP addresses of the nodes are used as proxies. About 8 million devices connected to the Internet around the world are in our pool.
In some cases, clients need proxies from certain countries, regions, cities, or providers. To do this, you can use the filter in the Customer Dashboard. A system will generate a password after specifying the required values in the filter. This password specifies specific values for the proxy fields.
If you do not use a filter, nodes from any cities/regions/providers will be used as proxies. You specify the proxy location and its binding to the provider after entering the parameters in the filter.
Ports are used for the simultaneous operation of a large number of connections to the proxy. Real devices used as proxies can go offline. In this case, there is an automatic switching (rotation) to another device, which is suitable for the filter conditions. The IP of such a port changes when the node changes.
In some cases, forced rotation is used (switching to other nodes/devices with different IP addresses). Switching occurs at specified intervals that you configure yourself. Forced rotation works even if the node is online.
