To start using ProtoWeb, all you need is a computer with an Internet connection and a web browser, that supports HTTP and FTP proxies. Protoweb is a free service, and no account is required to use it. All you need to do is add one of the Proxy Server addresses in your Web browser’s settings window.

Quick start guide

Make sure the computer is connected to the Internet. If you don't have a network card, you can connect using the computer's serial port and a Raspberry Pi based Modem Simulator

Install a web browser in case you haven't done so already. You can use any web browser that supports HTTP and FTP proxies. To see a list of tested browsers, check out our comprehensive list.

Start the web browser and go to it's Network Settings. In Proxy settings, add ProtoWeb as your default proxy server under HTTP and FTP proxies. Refer to the Proxy Server List for current proxy servers.
Now you can use the service. Navigate to to begin, or go to to view the full index of accessible domains.
