1. Download and Install Proxy Switcher and Manager extension.
Here I use Google Chrome browser as an example, and the operations for Firefox and Edge browsers are the same as following screenshot:
2. Proxy Switcher and Manager settings.
A. Local port forwarding.
For all YiLu Proxy IPs, you can right-click an IP and select a forward port.
a. Click the extension icon;
b. Select “Manual Proxy”;
c. Enter a proxy profile name;
d. Enter IP address 127.0.0.1 and a forward port 5500;
e. Select Socks5 or HTTP protocol;
f. Click the “√” icon to save.
B. Extract IP information.
For YiLu Proxy dynamic IPs and mobile IPs, you can directly extract IP information (including IP, port, username, and password). In this way, you can use proxies without running YiLu Proxy client after extracting IP information.
a. Select proxy IP type: rotating residential IP, rotating datacenter IP, mobile IP or pro residential IP;
b. Select a location;
d. Copy an IP and port;
e. Paste IP and port in the proxy switcher extension;
f. Select HTTP protocol;
g. Click the “√” icon to save.
3. Select a proxy to use.
a. Click the drop-down icon;
b. Select a proxy;
c. Click “√”.
Then enter “ipinfo.io” to check the IP address.
If use the proxy that extracts dynamic IP or mobile IP information, you need to enter username and password to verify.
The location of IP address is the consistent with the one selected in the YiLuProxy client.
