I manage about 15 different Instagram accounts and I'm tired of using other people's mobile proxies that are likely to be shared with so many other people. I'm getting each of my accounts getting the Instagram notification saying they know they're using a growth service.

I'd like to set up my own proxy since 4G in my country isn't so expensive.

How can I set up my own proxy server at home that could allow me to manage all my accounts?

Thanks in advance :)

How many proxies do you need? If just one on one machine, you can maybe just buy a dongle and mobile internet and connect it to machine with 5minutes reconnect interval and run :)

Well I'm not sure TECHNICALLY how many proxies I need. I suppose if I have a proxy server that resets every 5 minutes, that could potentially work but do you think its enough for 15 accounts? Especially if each account is performing 100-200 actions per day. Don't I need more proxies for that? Thanks for the feedback!

Most guys do 4G dongles and squidproxy on a raspberry pi.

I like using 4G modem gateways as they have support for external antennas, RJ-45 port, get much better speed, more reliable and most come with a management console. I use Sierra Wireless products a lot. And the ALEOS management software suite. Instead of raspberry pi I have a baremetal server in my rack with a bunch of quad network cards take all the 4G modems assign them to a ubuntu VM and configure the proxy that way.

A lot more expensive, but way more reliable and able to get bigger signal because each modem has a dedicated antenna placed strategically. As cell reception is a problem here in my area downtown.

For rotating the IPs you would have to power cycle the dongle or raspberry pi controlling it. Others can be configured through the built in settings.

Many ways if you have a spare phone you can use tethering with charger plugged or connect to pc and create hotspot from PC. If you want to do more advanced you can reach from anywhere on internet you need a different setup with forwardings etc. it's much easier than it sound

I ran into an issue with my home router since the instructions require me to do some configurations on the router at my house but I live in a multi-unit apartment and I'm not allowed access to the main gateway router. I'm stuck until I find either another house to try it at or I move out which I just might.

Give me another month before I make some more progress. But the guide looks solid and their discord group is really helpful.
