    In the Proxy Server section, for Type (4) choose HTTP or HTTPS (depending on the streaming sites you are using) or SOCKS5.

    In the Host field (5) enter the IP address of the proxy server you want to use and in the Port field (6) the port number.

    You can find IP addresses of all our servers in your account on our website, by going to Settings.

    Important! Make sure you use only the P2P-enabled servers marked with ✓ in the “P2P” column from the list of available servers.

    Type your VPN username and password (7).
