When you are configuring iOS to use a proxy server, you need to make sure that your proxy server is linked to every network that you access. In this article, we are going to show you how to configure iOS to use a proxy so that you don’t have anything to worry about.
PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE WELCOME EMAIL. YOU WILL NEED TO AUTHENTICATE YOUR IP ADDRESS FIRST.
How to Configure iOS to use a Proxy
1. Go to your “Settings.”
On your iPhone or iPad, open your “Settings.”
2. Click on “Wi-Fi.”
When you reach your Wi-Fi page, you should make sure that you are connected to the network that you want your proxy server to work with. If you are not, you should connect before going any further.
3. Click on the network that you wish to access. Scroll down until you reach the “HTTP Proxy” setting.
After clicking on the network that you wish to access, you will reach a page that is full of technical-looking information. This usually includes things like “DNS” and “Search Domains.” Scroll down the page until you reach the “HTTP Proxy” section.
4. Under “HTTP Proxy” click either “Manual” or “Auto.”
When you are configuring iOS to use a proxy, you need to decide whether you are going to be connecting manually or automatically. If you choose to connect automatically, your iPhone or iPad will automatically configure your settings for you. You will still have to enter your automatic proxy configuration script.
5. When setting up a “Manual” proxy server, make sure that you input all of your details properly.
If you click “Manual,” you will have to input your proxy server address and your port code. We would recommend checking these details twice so that you don’t have any issues. If you click the “Authentication” button, you will be prompted to input your username and password.
6. Add your proxy server to all of your networks.
Once you have added your proxy server details to one of your networks, you will have to add your proxy server details to any others that you want to access. We would recommend doing this all at once so that you don’t miss any.
7. Check that your proxy server is working.
Checking whether or not your proxy server is working on an iPhone or an iPad is really easy. If you go to Safari when it isn’t working, you will be met by a message that tells you that your server cannot be found. You’ll also encounter a similar message over in the App Store. If this happens, we would recommend fixing your proxy settings immediately so that you can access the internet.
