Proxy Rotation - Timer

Hello,

Is it possible to add a timer for proxy rotation on this software? I cannot work with this if proxy IP changes every request. I need like 30 seconds, if possible timer could be set by the user. Like change proxy every [24] seconds. Thanks

    I mean after you change the values for the proxy server (like the rotation time), you have to click the box to disable and then enable it again. This however is fixed in next update.

    ok that page gives me a new ip as well and ignores my setting. However I can not debug this now (10:30pm here) but I will tomorrow and reply here.

    found the problem. PS will use a new proxy every time some error was happening, even if that error was on the webserver not just the proxy. Will be fixed in next update.

    For real? I sure buy it !  Let me know when It comes out so I can test it.

    Now I see! Thanks! I will test and then buy it for sure. You guys are good, I got about 4 softwares from GSA. My friends too, they all like GSA and have some software.
  • Its not changing proxy every 30 seconds, It changes every time I request a URL, like before. Any solutions?
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    well it changes the proxy when it sees that it has been down, but thats the only situation here. Or how do you use it for what purpose?

    I use it to scrape data from a website with captcha breaker.  source
    But they detect if I change IP at the same request, So I use 30 seconds because thats the time to get data from this search.
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    really, I tested this today and itds working. Maybe use a higher number here like 60 so you make sure it is not inbetween the switch
  • Ok I tested @ www.whatsmyip.org and IP address changes every second or refresh.
    Set @ 60 seconds and changes IP address everytime. 
    Just did a fresh install on new machine and it wont work.
    Am I missing something? Enable this "timer" button or something?
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    oh wait...a change on this setting needs you to stop/restart the internal proxy server. Thats something I have to change.
  • I dont understand what you mean. Let me know when it works, so I would test and buy it. Thanks
  • It does not rotate for 30 seconds, it rotates every 1 second perhaps. I dont know why it doesnt follow the Option to change "only" after 30 seconds and not every second or every request. Please help me, I need this. Thaks

    im sorry but i can't see anything being wrong here. have you entered 30 in that box? And do you use the latest version?
  • Yes, 30 is default settings, I changed to 45 seconds. I clicked activate internal proxy server many times, tested a lot of times. It does apply this settings, also proxy scrapper crashes many times. Iยดm using windows 8.1 pro. Where do you check the current IP/proxy being used? Is it possible to highlight the proxy that is currently being used? I set up chrome with proxy settings 127.0.0.1:8080 and checked whatsmyip.org pressing F5. Every time / second I press the IP changes.I can relate the IPs from the proxies lists, but the problem is it does not stay with the same proxy for 30,40 seconds. It rotates ignoring this setting.
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    also this "crashing"...how does that look like? Do you get a bugreport window?
  • Yes bug report, to send info to you. Tomorrow you check then. Thanks

    The rotation works. Thanks! Just bought it
  • Is it possible to add next update an option to get proxies in order they appear on the list instead of random pick?
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    what use would that have?
  • To use private proxies in rotation order, so they donยดt repeat and cause blocking. thanks
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    well random proxy is not enough for you? It has to be in sequence? 
  • If possible this feature in future, some data scrapping websites have rate limits. I am using some private proxies, so donยดt want to get blocked. Also it would be nice to highlight the active proxy or show which one is active. These are just some suggestions. Thanks
