The proxy file export function is a helpful feature that exports the list of our proxy server's IPs in different formats and order.

Keep in mind that the main purpose of this export function is to allow you to tailor output to your needs, to re-order host, port, username and password fields.

Here we'll have a few examples or guidelines of how the output will look like if you chose one option or another, so you'd know which option to go with.

These rules apply to HTTP(s) proxies as well as SOCKS5 proxies.

Depending on the mode you get different output and ports.

  • Rotating mode:

    Some technical details on this one.

    • on EACH request you will get different IP

    • (10 minutes) is basically to get new IP's every 10 minutes.

    • Let's take for example the 10000 IPv6 plan, you can have have up to 10000 NEW IPv6 addresses every 10 minutes, if you wish so.

    • When proxy mode is rotation , each request is different IP from the 10000 IP's pool.

    • IP Auth: user only | 10 minutes | any other time frame
      Output:

      2a10:66c0:1:a000:9094:b75a:1ee8:df06
      2a10:66c0:1:a001:ebdc:4402:1148:fa6b
      etc...

  • Fixed mode (you get ports: 10001-20000)

    • Allow the users to use them repetitively for as long as they wish having no need for rotation.
      Why are fixed proxies a great choice for scraping data?

    • They are based on virtual machines so they have fixed IPs. As a result, servers don’t see activities originating from a fixed proxy IP address suspicious.

    • IP Auth: user only | NO ROTATION - host:user:pass:port
      Output:

      45.145.57.003:user:47cab13c1d:10001
      45.145.57.003:user:47cab13c1d:10002
      ....
      45.145.57.003:user:47cab13c1d:20000

    • IP Auth: user only | NO ROTATION - host:user:port
      Output:

      45.145.57.003:user:10001 
      45.145.57.003:user:10002
      ....
      45.145.57.003:user:20000

    • IP Auth: user only | NO ROTATION - host:port

      Output:

      45.145.57.003:10001 
      45.145.57.003:10002
      ......
      45.145.57.003:20000

    • Or maybe you need the host:password:port format. That can be done the same way.

  • Mixed mode (you get ports 3128, 10001-15000)

    • Half of the IP addresses used as rotating IP's while the second half of IP addresses will be used in the standard way as the Fixed mode by using one IP address per port, therefore as we can see we can export the second half IPs as such:

    • IP Auth: user only | NO ROTATION - host:user:pass:port
      Output:

      45.145.57.003:user:47cab13c1d:10001
      45.145.57.003:user:47cab13c1d:10002
      ....
      45.145.57.003:user:47cab13c1d:15000
      45.145.57.113:user:47cab13c1d:3128

    • IP Auth: user only | NO ROTATION - host:user:port
      Output:

      45.145.57.003:user:10001
      45.145.57.003:user:10002
      ...
      45.145.57.003:user:15000
      45.145.57.003:user:3128

    • IP Auth: user only | NO ROTATION - host:port
      Output:

      45.145.57.003:10001
      45.145.57.003:10002
      ....
      45.145.57.003:15000
      45.145.57.003:3128

    • Or maybe you need the host:password:port format. That can be done the same way.
