  • In the Proxy Settings pop-up, define the proxy you would like to use. Octoparse unfortunately only offers IP:PORT based format to authenticate through a proxy network. For that particular reason, you will need to use our Whitelisted IP feature in order to skip the traditional username:password authentication when going through a proxy.
