Socks5 won't work! any solution?

Post by fdltickets » Thu Feb 02, 2017 12:31 am

Hello, i am new here and it's a pleasure! :)

I use iMacros for a long time already, i use it very basically but i get it to get it's job done, have also done pretty heavy (for me!) scripts, i was doing just another script when i found out that i wouldn't be able to use socks5 in it. The script goes over without errors when playing it, but after the PROXY string when i go to any website i get like a message similar to the download one (i'll upload a screenshot).


FF 51
iMacros i am not sure but i downloaded it lately, free version for FF of course


Code: Select all

i did use proxies in the past, http ones, and everything was just fine, i believe this is because this time it's not http but socks5, and unfortunately i can't change them...

What i am trying to archive is changing the socks5 at each loop, if you could fix this or help me in anyway i will really appreciate it, also third party solutions are welcome, it's important that at each loop i get the next proxy(socks5) set.

I have searched in the forum, and on google, i have found very old stuff, with java and stuff, also some other codes which look like mine, anyway, nothing helped.

Any thought? the code is quite simple and (if possible) should not be hard for PRO's like you.

thanks in advance!
