What is the difference between an HTTP proxy and an HTTPS proxy?

These are two very different types of proxies with different behaviors and different design goals.1. The HTTP proxyThe HTTP client sends a request to the HTTP proxy asking the proxy to retrieve a remote resource and forward it to the client. Resources can be accessed using a different protocol than HTTP; That is, if the HTTP proxy supports this feature, the client can pass FTP or other urls. This also includes HTTPS resources. HTTP clients send requests using common HTTP verbs such as GET, POST, HEAD, and so on.The HTTP proxy accepts requests from clients, analyzes them, and acts accordingly. If a remote resource needs to be retrieved (for example, not from the cache), the HTTP proxy establishes a connection to a remote server and acts as a client for that remote server. The resource is downloaded and passed to the client.If the HTTPS protocol is used to access remote resources, the HTTP proxy validates the X.509 certificate provided by the remote server.End-to-end security cannot be achieved using this HTTP connection alone. Security can be ensured by pre-securing resources, but even if both the client and the proxy use HTTPS, the proxy can access raw data that is not protected by HTTPS. In addition, unprotected data may remain in the proxy's cache if the proxy uses caching.2. The HTTPS proxyThe HTTPS proxy is a repeater that receives a special HTTP request (CONNECT verb) and establishes an opaque tunnel to the target server (not even necessarily an HTTPS server).The client then sends an SSL/TLS request to the server, and they continue with the SSL handshake, followed by HTTPS (if required).The whole HTTP, HTTPS, proxy thing can get a little messy. You can connect to an HTTP proxy using HTTPS. In this case, the communication between the client and the proxy is encrypted.Roxlabs provides 500MB traffic, which can be claimed after registration and login. Contains IP resources from many countries in the world, which can be extracted and used.

How does a HTTP proxy work?

The HTTP proxy runs between the sending Web server and the receiving Web client, processing the HTTP protocol line by line before sending any potentially harmful content to the internal Web client. It also acts as a buffer between your Web server and potentially harmful Web clients by enforcing HTTP RFC compliance and preventing potential buffer overflow attacks.Depending on the configuration, the HTTP proxy can help you:1. Improve securityYou can set protocol anomaly detection rules to identify and reject suspicious packets to protect your Web server from external network attacks.2. Keep your privacyFor various security reasons, some people choose to use proxies to mask their real IP addresses. Just like regular proxies, HTTP proxies can mask your IP address.3. Break content limitsCompanies can restrict what goes into their networks. The HTTP proxy can be set to restrict content based on the domain or pathname, filename, or extension that appears in the URL.4. Bypass target site restrictionsThis is particularly relevant to web scraping and web crawling. The HTTP proxy is used to generate HTTP request headers that contain information about the browser making the request.If you want to test the HTTP proxy service, you can try Using RoxLabs, which will receive 500MB traffic once you sign up.

How do I transition from API to proxy manager?

The transition from API to proxy manager is easy.By default, the proxy manager supports insert port 22225, which is configured to behave exactly the same as our super proxy.1. Download and install the proxy manager2. Run the proxy manager on a machine that your code can access3. Update the proxy address from (zproxy.lum-superproxy.io) to the IP address of the machine running the proxy manager (usually 127.0.0.1) in the relevant location4. Send your request to http://127.0.0.1:22225 in the same way you would with the APIA more advanced approach to integrating the agent manager into your code is to configure the new agent through the agent manager UI (http://127.0.0.1:22999) with the required configuration and send HTTP(S) requests to the specified port.In this case, you do not need to send additional user parameters. For example, if you set up a new proxy on port 24001 with a long session IP default, you will send an HTTP request to http://127.0.0.1:24001 with no additional parameters, unless you want to send a custom header with the request.If you need multiple different proxy IP, we recommend using RoxLabs proxy, including global Residential proxies, with complimentary 500MB experience package for a limited time.

How do I integrate the proxy manager into the phone?

1. Android SettingsAndroid and machines using proxy Manager need to share the same WiFi connectionThe proxy manager port must whitelist the IP of the Android deviceWiFi Network Configuration -> Advanced -> Manual Proxy:Proxy host: IPV4 address of the machine with proxy manager ($ipconfig/for MAC: $ifconfig)Port: 24000 (or any other port you create)2. Set the iPhone (iOS) proxyThe iPhone and the machine using the agent manager need to share the same WiFi connectionWhitelist iPhone IPv4 in the Agent Manager under GeneralTo find IPv4, follow these instructions:Go to wireless Settings.Click the blue "I" icon next to the network name.View your IP address.Open the Settings app and go to WiFiClick the name of the WiFi network to which you are connectedScroll to the bottom and you'll find the HTTP proxy section. The default value is Off. Set it to Manual to manually configure the proxy SettingsEnter the IPv4 address of the server where the agent manager is installed in the server slotEnter 24000 in the port slot (or any other port you create)If you need multiple different proxy IP, we recommend using RoxLabs proxy, including global Residential proxies, with complimentary 500MB experience package for a limited time.
