In this Tutorial...
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 FOG LDN proxy tester.
This tutorial will show you step by step on how to insert proxies into your internet explorer and in the proxy tester.
- Download and install the FOGLDN proxy tester from here.
- Click on "Import proxies", insert the proxies that you want to test, and click "Submit proxies".
- Click on "Test Proxies".
- The result of each proxy will be obtained (See the picture below):
The website ping time should be as much lower as possible
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.
