    Hey guys,

    I have a few ips at my disposal. I purchased these ips form my ISP they are all loaded on my nic card.

    My questions:

    1. How can I use these ips as proxies? There's this specific software I would like to use but it requires proxies and I would like to use my ips for that.
    2. How can I use these ips as proxies in Firefox? I have tried putting on of the ips on my nic card in the Firefox proxies settings but when I try to load a page I get the error: "Access denied. Please consult the http-access directive in the User's Guide for more information."

    Thank you very much in advance.

    I'll take a stab at answering:

    1 - Without knowing what the specific app you want to use the proxy with, most apps that can use them have an area in the control panel where you enter the proxies to use.

    The usual format is:
    IP:pORT or
    IP:pORT:USERNAME:pASSWORD

    The second format is for is your proxies require you to authenticate it when using them.

    Some apps let you specify the type of proxies they are (HTTP, SOCKS, etc.) but with other apps they just try to work with whatever IP:pORT info you give them.

    2 - not real sure about that one. Do you have to authenticate into the proxies to use them? Is the computer that FireFox is running on Apache server or something similar? That error message makes me wonder about that.

    peace,
    gregs.

    Why would you buy extra ip's from your local isp? The whole point of proxies is to use them on networks that are not local to you. Should your local isp get a complaint about what you are doing online they can always disconnect your service.

    Thanks for you answer, but again, this is not what I am looking for. I know how to set up proxies in a software and firefox. The issue that I am having is that the ips on my nic card are not proxies. And I was wondering if there's a way I can "transform" there ips into proxies. Maybe there's a software that will do it?
