If you have to automate some PhantomJS jobs and want to use PersonaTool Proxies: That is easy!
First of all: you will need a valid PersonaTool account to do the scripting and then it goes like this…
Activate a proxy with your PersonaTool account. You will need the crypted password from your sessions.json file in the PersonaTool directory: it is part of the JSON values and can be found for “pw”:…
On the shell, you have to activate the proxy with a call to the REST interface like this, once you have the value (please note, the values for password and the proxy IP have been changed to fantasy values):
As a PersonaTool user you are able to use the proxies we provide with your other network tools, if you need to. This feature is for developers and technical savvy people first, but the implementation is not too complicated:
We provide a network of SOCKS proxies
These proxies are blocking ALL IP numbers, unless you unlock your IP with PersonaTool
Once unlocked, you can use that specific IP for the time you use PersonaTool
That means: if you start PersonaTool and unlock a specific proxy, that proxy stays open for quiet some time for you:
For example, you activate proxy 188.8.131.52 with the tool, you can then start your standard Chrome on Mac with this command:
open -a /Applications/Google\ Chrome.app –args –proxy-server=”socks5://184.108.40.206:443″
which gives you the option to use other applications with your account as well. The same works on Windows 10 like this:
And we are back in Europe via VPS.net – on popular demand I have just added one proxy machine in Amsterdam via VPS.net. If you restart your PersonaTool, you will now find 2 outlets in the Netherlands via 2 different providers. Please note the DigitalOcean machine is a IPv6 outlet and the AMS2 via VPS.net is standard IPv4…
Folks, Easter is jumping at us… only a few days to the end of March and time flies by. I have updated the PersonaTool version to Version 1.9 – probably the last release before we jump onto the final NWJS.io release, too.
This time, the Facebook bug was fixed. When you use an earlier version of PersonaTool and go to Facebook, it showed a darkened page that only disappeared after a few clicks.
That is solved now and the new version also features a new proxy in New York, that we establised 2 days ago. The Flash player is enabled by default, so be careful on those tracking infos, ok?
You may download the new version and install it OVER your existing version. But the first start in Windows fails, if you do it. The second start does not… very strange, but at least it works.
When you create your pages on the fly and target specific visitors when they come from specific sources, it is very easy to create referrers with PersonaTool: make your visitor come from nasa.gov in Spanish? No problem!
In the top navigation bar of PersonaTool is a little button, that gives you the option to insert a link into the web page you are currently on:
I went to nasa.gov and did that:
a request opens and asks for the destination URL. Once entered, you click the link that will appear on top of the page and you will see in the statistics that you have a visitor from NASA… like from outer space! So you can create dynamic pages for specific audiences and test them right away…
It is easy to combine that with different country IPs and languages, so you can test your pages for different audiences! Download your version today for free!
We have added one more outlet in New York for your US proxy needs! This proxy works on ATLANTIC.net again.
Very fast, very nice and not obviously an ISP number on first glance to enjoy these american TV shows you like so much! Also note, that our IP numbers do change once in a while, when we reset the proxies. Then a new IP number is assigned and PersonaTool V1.81 does recognize that in your setting and updates it, too!
