Proxifier is a tool that allows you to route network connections through proxy servers, which can help you improve your privacy and security online. In this blog, we will guide you on how to set up Proxifier on Ubuntu 20.04 using the command line interface (CLI).
Step 1: Install Proxifier
Before you can use Proxifier, you need to install it on your Ubuntu 20.04 system. You can download the Proxifier Linux package from the official website. Once you have downloaded the package, open the terminal and navigate to the directory where the package is located. Use the following command to install the package:
sudo dpkg -i proxifier_*.deb
Step 2: Create a new profile
After installing Proxifier, you need to create a new profile. To do this, open the terminal and type the following command:
sudo proxifier –add-profile <profile-name>
Replace <profile-name> with a name for your profile.
Step 3: Configure Proxifier
Now that you have created a new profile, you need to configure Proxifier. To add a proxy server to your profile, type the following command in the terminal:
sudo proxifier –add-server <profile-name> <server-protocol> <server-address> <server-port> <username> <password>
Replace <profile-name> with the name of your profile, <server-protocol> with the protocol used by your proxy server (e.g. HTTP, SOCKS), <server-address> with the IP address or hostname of the proxy server, <server-port> with the port number that the proxy server is listening on, <username> with your proxy server username (if applicable), and <password> with your proxy server password (if applicable).
Step 4: Configure applications
You can now configure the applications that you want to use with Proxifier. To do this, type the following command in the terminal:
sudo proxifier –add-app <profile-name> <application-path>
Replace <profile-name> with the name of your profile and <application-path> with the path to the application executable file.
Step 5: Start Proxifier
To start Proxifier, type the following command in the terminal:
sudo proxifier –start <profile-name>
Replace <profile-name> with the name of your profile.
Congratulations, you have successfully set up Proxifier on Ubuntu 20.04 using the command line interface! You can now enjoy improved privacy and security online by routing your network connections through proxy servers.
