If you are not sure whether your proxies are working or not in the Bot, you can check your proxies by using one of 2 simple methods by testing them on your own windows default web browser "Internet Explorer" or use the proxy tester.
This tutorial will show you step by step on how to insert proxies into your internet explorer and in the proxy tester.
- After that, select the proxies you want to save on the monitor proxies box under the proxies settings and click on save proxies as monitor proxies; then select the ones you want to save in the normal proxies box under the proxies settings and click on save proxies as normal proxies. You can click here for detailed information on how to insert your proxies in the Bot.
- Footsites and Adidas ban proxies at the ATC stage, so you should test your proxies at the ATC stage by selecting Test using ATC option.
In order to understand the status obtained for each proxy, you can press the Help! button. The following figure will pop-up.
You can always double check the result by testing proxies manually.
if you can access the site on your browser and add to cart using the proxy, then it's working.
For this tutorial, We're going to use these free proxies. Please don't use the same proxies in the picture below as they will no longer work after this article.
Open internet explorer
On your keyboard, press "ALT" to view the internet explorer options, click Tools -> Internet Options.
Go to the Connections Tab and click on LAN settings.
Check the box "Use a proxy server for your LAN", enter your IP address in the Address field and your Port then click OK.
Next, browse any web page and check if the page loads; if the page doesn't load, it means that your proxy is not working. Now, repeat the step for all of your Proxies.
For proxies with authentication required, do the same steps, but when you are trying to browse any web page, you will be asked to enter your Username and Password.
Please, always make sure that you add 20% of your proxies to monitoring because you need to monitor the site before the drop even if it’s a countdown link. Please ALWAYS put proxies there unless we instruct you to do otherwise.
