Why use proxies for JDownloader?

Proxies can be used in JDownloader to bypass geographical restrictions, hide your IP address, and protect your online identity. This can be especially helpful when downloading content from sites that only have regional availability. Proxies can also help you download content from sites that are blocked in your country, or if you are using a public or shared network.

JDownloader supports all major protocols, such as SOCKS4/5 and HTTP/S. You can use mobile, residential, data center proxies; paid proxies or public ones.

In other words, you can use absolutely any proxies!

How to Set Up a Proxy Server in JDownloader?

Now we’ll show you how you can quickly and efficiently add multiple proxies to JDownloader and use the program for virtually limitless downloads.

Adding a Single Proxy to JDownloader

If your goal is to download a small number of files, a single proxy will probably be enough.

Let’s get started.

  • Launch the program;
  • Select the “Settings” menu item;
  • In the “Connection Manager” section of the menu, click on the “Add” button;
  • In the appeared window, select the desired proxy protocol. We will use SOCKS5;
  • In the “Host” and “Port” specify the IP address and port of the proxy;
  • If your proxy requires Username and Password authentication, then enter them in the appropriate fields. We will use a proxy with IP authentication, so we leave these fields blank.
  • Click “OK”. The proxy is added and ready to work.

Adding Multiple Proxies to JDownloader

But let’s say your goal is to download LOTS of files at once, but due to some restrictions, you can’t do it using only one IP address.

This means you need a lot of proxy servers. But there is a solution!

Let’s go to the page with the trial proxy package. Test proxies can be used for 1 hour. If that time is not enough for you, you can upgrade your proxy package for a month.

The first thing you need to do is register and confirm your email address. Then go to the page with your proxy package and scroll to the bottom until you see “Proxy list designer“. This tool will help you generate a proxy list for import into JDownloader.

Then proceed as follows:

  • In the “Template” field enter the tag  socks5://{ip}:{port}
  • In the “Proxy Type” field we select “SOCKS 4/5 with a binding to IP address” from the drop-down list
  • In the “Format” field, leave the “ТХТ
  • Click on the “CREATE” button

In order for JDownloader to use the proxy correctly, you must specify your own address in the control panel in the “Binding IP” field.

The list of proxies in the correct format is downloaded automatically and looks like this
