Cannot Login to on-Premise Proxy Manager

If you fail to login to your Proxy Manager(PM), please do the following:

  • Make sure that the computer that runs PM is not using a VPN.
    Mind that using a VPN while running PM might cause login problems, and also slow down the  connection to the proxies
  • Close PM (the terminal's black screen where PM is running)
  • Delete cookies on your browser
  • Open PM again (it takes about 1-2 minutes for PM to load) 
  • Try to log in on the same method you did before (by using Google, or by using your registered mailbox and password)

Alternatively, you may switch the hosting of Proxy Manager to our Cloud. We will take care of hosting and even load-balancing between several instances of Proxy Managers.

P.S.  After PM loads, the default browser should open automatically on PM's login page. If it does not, open your browser, browse, and then try to log in.

Proxy Manager connection error (port status is not "ok")

If you cannot log in to Proxy Manager, or If Proxy Manager cannot connect to Super Proxy (i.e. port status is not OK), check the following:

  • Make sure that VPN is not turned on
  • Make sure that there is no anti-virus or any other security software (such as 360, Norton, etc.) blocking traffic sent from Proxy Manager
  • Make sure that the firewall (OS / server / any other security software's firewall) allows TCP traffic through ports 22000-25000
  • If the proxy manager software is installed on macOS/ Linux server - Verify that:
    • Node.js version is between 12.18.3 and 14.18.1
    • NPM version is between 6.14.6 and 8.1.3
    • If versions of NPM and Nodejs are not the one we're supporting - please remove them and install the versions that we specified. More information regarding Linux/Mac installation can be found at our GitHub page
