How can I access proxies using ports?

Residential proxies can be accessed through city/country specific ports using your login credentials (username and password) or via whitelisted IPs (you can whitelist IPs in the dashboard).

 

You can use our hostname gate.smartproxy.io:7000 the same way you are using IP:port configuration
 

There are three types of ports:

Random proxy from a random city/country

gate.smartproxy.io:7000 endpoint will give you random IP from a random city/country with every new request.

curl -U user:pass -x gate.smartproxy.io:7000 https://ipinfo.io

Random proxy from a specific city/country

To get a random proxy with each request from specific city/country, you need to use one city/country specific proxy endpoint. For example, us.smartproxy.io:10000 will give random US proxy IP with every query.

curl -U user:pass -x us.smartproxy.io:10000 https://ipinfo.io

A specific city/country with a sticky proxy

Main countries have up to 10,000 ports with sticky IPs. The IP will change to a new one after 5 minutes. If you need to establish more sticky sessions, please use single backconnect entry node with sticky session parameter. Get more details here.

For example, it.smartproxy.io:25762 will give the same Italian IP address for up to 5 minutes. Please note, that this endpoint has 10,000 sticky ports, from 20001 to 29999.

curl -U user:pass-x it.smartproxy.io:25762 https://ipinfo.io
 
If you are accessing our proxies from China, please use visitxiangtan.com domain instead of  smartproxy.io.

For example, if you want to target US sticky proxies from China use this endpoint - us.visitxiangtan.com:10001
