When using proxy IP, we often encounter some problems, especially when interfacing with the HTTP proxy API, we may encounter that the proxy IP cannot be successfully obtained or cannot be used. This can be caused by:
The proxy IP address cannot be obtained
When using the HTTP proxy API, you may encounter problems in successfully obtaining the proxy IP, mainly for the following reasons:
The format of proxy IP addresses returned does not match: Different software has different requirements on the format of proxy IP addresses. Some require a format with a username and password, some require a text format or JSON format, and even some require a less mainstream format. If the format returned by the proxy IP does not meet the requirements of the software, the proxy IP cannot be successfully obtained. Before connecting to the HTTP proxy API, ensure that the format of the proxy IP addresses matches the software requirements.
Multiple software extracts proxy IP at the same time or not at intervals: Some proxy IP service providers set minimum extraction intervals to ensure server stability. For example, a short-acting premium proxy IP may require a 10-second extraction interval, while an exclusive IP pool may require 1 second. However, some software does not set up the function of calling API extraction intervals, and can only call apis without interval restrictions. In addition, if multiple software calls the API to extract the proxy IP at the same time, it will also lead to the failure to extract the proxy IP. The solution to this problem can be to set up a local IP pool, obtain proxy IP at intervals and store them locally, and then obtain proxy IP at intervals through the local API interface for use. Alternatively, you can purchase a separate API for each software, or create a local IP pool for multiple software calls to avoid the problems caused by simultaneously extracting the proxy IP.
In short, to successfully obtain the proxy IP, we need to ensure that the return format of the proxy IP meets the requirements of the software, and comply with the extraction interval rules set by the proxy IP service provider, or adopt a local IP pool to obtain and manage the proxy IP. This ensures that the available proxy IP can be successfully retrieved when using the HTTP proxy API.
No proxy IP is currently available
When using the HTTP proxy API, you may encounter a situation where you can't get an available proxy IP for the following reasons:
Incorrect authorization: High-quality proxy IP usually requires authorization to be used. If the authorization is incorrect or incomplete, the proxy IP will not be available and the software may prompt "No proxy IP is currently available" or other error messages. There are two types of proxy IP authorization: terminal IP authorization and user name and password authorization. Terminal IP authorization requires that the public IP address of the terminal using the proxy be bound. Username and password authorization, on the other hand, requires authentication when using the proxy IP. The specific licensing mode depends on whether the software used supports these licensing modes. If the authorization is incorrect, the proxy IP cannot be successfully verified and used.
Incorrect protocol: Some software supports only HTTP or HTTPS, but the proxy IP purchased may be SOCKS5. Similarly, some software only supports the SOCKS5 protocol, but the purchased proxy IP may be HTTPS. There are also software that supports both protocols, but may not be set up correctly when using them. For example, the SOCKS5 protocol is selected when the HTTP proxy IP is used. In either case, an incorrect protocol will cause the proxy IP usage to fail and may prompt "No proxy IP is currently available" or other error messages.
In the case of an unavailable proxy IP, we need to ensure that the authorization is correct and complete. For proxy IP addresses with different authorization modes, correct authorization Settings are required. In addition, you need to pay attention to the protocol requirements of the software used and ensure that the agent IP purchased matches the type of protocol required by the software.
In summary, to successfully use the HTTP proxy API, we need to ensure that the authorization is correct and complete, and select the appropriate proxy IP based on the protocol requirements of the software. Only in this way can we avoid the problem of "no proxy IP is currently available" and proceed smoothly with the use of proxy IP.
When connecting to the HTTP proxy API, we need to ensure that the format of the proxy IP matches the software requirements, and set the authorization mode and protocol type correctly. If the connection fails, contact the proxy IP service provider or software provider for support and solutions.
