Configuration Guides

Our premium proxy service was specifically designed to work with web browsers including Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer and others. On the other hand, it is technically possible that you can configure almost any networked application to work through our proxy. To do so please read your application user manual.

Before we start you should make sure you have received not only username and password from PayPal but your proxy IP address and port number as well. Proxy details were sent to you by email. If you did not receive the email from the system you can obtain your proxy details here.

Below you will find quick user guides for configuring most popular software packages (FireFox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera) to work with our premium proxy service.

For your security, always ensure your web browsers are up to date.
