    Hi BHW,
    I faced the problem which the IP of my computer is changes when I am not using it(when I am with my computer I will do it manually) and that affect the running of followliker because I run many accounts with private proxies so the IP which is changed is not in the list of authorized IP then my account is stopped from automating.
    How does you guys managed this problem?
    Thanks

    PS.Sorry for my english.

    Hi, in my case I configure my proxies with user:password and not IP based authentication. I know that sslproxies and proxies-n-vpn allow you to do this.

    How often does your isp change your ip address? My change once a month or once every 2 months. Even if I shut-down my pc. My ip would change if I reboot my router, but I never do.

    I get an email notification whenever my ip change from my router. My Cisco router, installed with DD-WRT firmware has a feature that monitors ip change. When it does, it notify me by email.

    The other way is to check FL log to see if you have any errors like how you have been doing.

    they have static IP so they are not like us when we reboot the router we will get new ip
    you have 3 option
    1- Add your new proxy to authorization list every time your ip changed
    2- Get user:password proxy
    3- is the best:put your FL on VPS

    it can be a real pain in the ass, if you have dynamic ip and ip auth proxies :)

    you can do two things:
    1. switch to a provider who uses username:password auth only
    2. you figure out a workaround: for instance with ipfreely if you have dynamic ip, you can keep a tab open in your browser which checks your ip regularly and if it changes, it automatically re-authenticates the ip
    but you can simulate this even with a service which doesn't have such feature, just record a macro with imacros of the authentication process and run it in every 10 mins or so (run it in loop and put 10 mins delay between the runs), so you won't getting logged out for sure and you won't loose too many time either, if your ip changes
    if it's a service which detects your ip automatically, it's pretty easy to record a macro, if not, you can use a site like ipchicken to determine your ip, extract it and use this result on the authentication page, it's also not that hard to do, if you know your way around imacros

    If I understand what your asking, it sounds like your computer has a dynamic IP address.
    You will need to set a static IP address, you will need to follow the link I provided below to
    learn how to set static IP address. If your ISP has you placed behind a proxy server then
    you may need to contact them and request a static IP address.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestion!
    I tried imacro but it seems not work(after my script adding the ip the box that shows which ip is authorized ip just goes blank)
    but this problem is just solved by replacing my labtop to my home so I have static ip and woola.
    Anyway thanks this community!!! You guys are the best.
