You may connect to any of the current active proxy servers using the address and port numbers below. Use this list as a reference when configuring your web browser. For a comprehensive guide, please see Getting Started.

This list will be periodically changed to prevent service abuse. New addresses and port numbers will be updated here, and announced in social media channels. Our standard servers serve out pages at T1 speeds.

System Status Update April 19th, 2022 #

Service outage that started on April 17th has ended. All services are operating normally.

Automatic Proxy Configuration #

If your web browser supports Automatic Proxy Configuration, you may want to use it instead to provide redundancy and automatic updates should the proxy server addresses and port numbers change (refer to “Proxy auto-config” below). Use of the Proxy auto-config is optional.

Automatic Configuration is supported by the following web browsers:

  • Netscape Navigator 2.0+ and newer
  • Internet Explorer 4.0+ and newer.

Note that there are instructions for setting up a proxy server for specific browsers in the Wiki. You may navigate to any of these using the navigation bar on the left.
