Our proxy service offers an alternative to using a full VPN and is included free with any VPN plan.
VPNme offers three different kinds of proxy service:
All methods require authentication. Use your tunnel username and password:
(Please log in to see your VPN credentials!)
Unfortunately, most SOCKS clients don't support authentication. If there's nowhere to put in a username and password, it probably won't work. Sorry.
Most programs that can use HTTP proxies do support authentication. Most clients will prompt you for your tunnel username/password the first time you use the proxy. You will usually then be given an option to save your password to make connecting again easier in the future.
The HTTPS port offers security and privacy in the form of SSL. It's standards-compliant, but almost nothing supports an HTTP proxy over SSL. This is unfortunate, because there is effectively no method of proxying that's widely supported, offers authentication and is secure.
If you do use HTTPS mode, you might also want to install our CA certificate.
On the public side of these proxies, all connections are transformed using VPNme's standard NAT mode. You will get a random IP address roughly every session.
Here's an example of the Firefox proxy settings configured to use us-east.
