The Backconnect Gateway is a server that manages your proxy requests. It’s accessed through a single address that automatically rotates proxy IPs for you, freeing you from managing proxy lists.
The Backconnect Gateway matches your request with the best IP available and rotates IPs in keeping with your needs.
Nimble IP is accessed through our Backconnect Gateway - a single point of entry for automatic proxy access and rotation.
The Backconnect Gateway is accessible at:
- Host : ip.nimbleway.com
- Proxy IP Port : 7000
The welcome email sent when your account was opened included credentials to access the Backconnect Gateway.
Here is an example of accessing the gateway with username and password authentication:
accountName: Your company gateway name.
pipelineName: The pipeline you wish to use (every new account comes with a quick-start pipeline named “residential”).
pipelinePassword: the password for the selected pipeline.
A country is selected randomly for proxy requests that do not include a target country.
If your requests are not receiving a random country, make sure that:
1. Your pipeline settings do not include a target country, and are set to ALL.
2. You are not sending a country parameter in your request.
Nimble proxies auto-rotate IPs by default. Every request you make will be sent through a different exit node, in accordance with your pipeline settings.
If you’d like to maintain an IP for long periods of time, you can start a sticky session.
To get a sticky IP, add “-session-<random_string>” to the username segment of the authentication string.
If you’re using a whitelist instead of username/password authentication, you can start a session by choosing a port between 9000 and 10000. Once you’re finished working with the session, you can simply change ports to start a new one.
