Proxy Pools



Creating Proxy Pools

Proxy pools were newly added to Proxidize Next-Gen to add an extra layer of anti-detection and load-balancing techniques for proxies.

Proxy pools gather all "Connected" modems in the dashboard inside a pool accessed locally/externally over a unique port. When the pool is created, a new proxy is generated. This proxy is linked to all modems, load balancing the traffic between all modems; Each TCP request gets assigned a random IP from the connected modems. This type of pool is called a "Rapid Pool."

Using Proxy Pools

  1. Locally

    You can use your hosting device's local IP over port 55555. Depending on your automation method, the pool IP can be used in your local browser software, scraping script, or anywhere. i.e.,

    The local IP can be obtained directly from your "System Information" tab or your router's web interface.

  2. Externally

    You will access the pool over the public IP of your router over port 55555. This can only work if you forward port 55555 in your router.
    If you are unfamiliar with port forwarding, please refer to port forwarding article here.

Pool Authentication

When using the pool IP locally or externally, you will be promoted to authenticate depending on the authentication method you have set under your Proxidize Settings.

The default authentication method is username/password set once you set up your kit.

The other authentication method is IP authentication, where you can set a list of allowed IPs/subnets to access the pool.

Troubleshooting Proxy Pools

  1. Ensure you use the local IP address when connecting from a device within the same network as your hosting device.

  2. Ensure you use the public IP address when connecting from an external device.

  3. If connecting from an external device, make sure port 55555 is forwarded in your router.

  4. Ensure that port 55555 is opened from the ISP side even when configuring the rules on the router.

  5. Make sure you are properly authenticated.

  6. If you still face any issues, please get in touch with the technical support team over the live chat on the website:

New pool types will be released in the next few months.
