Problem with the Proxy IP setting
« on: January 01, 2017, 07:53:14 AM »
I have noticed that if the Proxy IP is entered incorrectly, the program will still connect to Pinterest.

I assume the program is using the IP of my VPS, if the Proxy IP can not be used - instead of taking no further action.

Is there a way to confirm the Proxy IP is being used?

Is there a way to connect to Pinterest ONLY using the Proxy IP - so the VPS IP can never be used?

The only time it will use the VPS IP if you put a proxy IP is if you set the port number to 0. Otherwise it will try to use the proxy and just fail if it's incorrectly entered.

Each time after I assigned a proxy, I clear all cache and go to whatismyipaddress.com to verify.

Me toooo, it's a useful final check before adding a new Pinterest account ????

There are few firefox extensions that tells your current ip.
Mine is called "My IP".
Just install that.
That's much better than go to "whatismyipaddress.com" every time.

What happens if the FF extension fails?....lot less chance of Google failing  8)
