Guide to Create Your Own Rotating Gateway Proxies

IPBot allows you to deploy HTTP gateway proxies with rotating exit IPs.

These are useful for controlling dynamic IPs programmatically through one static IP in cloud applications and pre-production environments.

This guide is divided into 4 easy sections:

  1. Configure Gateway Proxies
  2. Set IP Rotation Frequency
  3. Configure Static Proxies
  4. Authenticate Gateway Proxies

Configure Gateway Proxies

For this guide, let's use the example IPs 10.7.8.9-10.7.8.109 that we configured previously.

First, log in to the control panel and navigate to the Orders page.

Select the order with the gateway proxies you'd like to configure.

The next page should look like this:

Select the checkbox titled Convert Selected Proxies to Gateway Proxies.

Set IP Rotation Frequency

From here, you can configure the gateway proxy to rotate to a new IP every X number of minutes, or rotate to a new IP on every request.

Configure Static Proxies

Once you've configured the rotation frequency, select the static proxies that your gateway proxy will rotate through.

These can be used as both direct static proxy IPs and rotating exit IPs for your gateways simultaneously.

You can also select static exit IPs from all active proxy orders in your account.

Authenticate Gateway Proxies

To authenticate your proxies with a username:password combination and/or whitelisted IPs, select the icon titled Configure proxy authentication settings.

The next page should look like this:

You can create a username:password combination and whitelist the source IP addresses that will be accessing your gateway proxies.

Then, select the Apply Configuration button.

These configurations will apply within 5-10 minutes across your entire network.

To format and download your list of rotating backconnect proxies, select the clipboard icon titled Download list of selected proxies.
