Errors in the work of the proxy server: causes and solutions

Proxy errors

Stable, efficient and secure interaction with resources on the – one of the main requirements of modern Internet users. And for this purpose, mobile proxies are often connected to work. This is a kind of intermediary that can replace your real IP addresses and location, by which you could be identified on the network as an end user, with their own technical parameters.

Thanks to mobile proxies, absolute anonymity of browsing the Internet, reliable protection against hacker attacks and any other unauthorized access is ensured. And with their help, you can effectively bypass regional blocking, gaining access to those resources that are currently blocked in your region, work simultaneously with multiple accounts, including using automated software to promote them.

We can talk about the advantages of mobile proxies indefinitely, because they really increase the efficiency and security of working on the Internet. And just imagine how negative emotions you will experience from the fact that at one not very pleasant moment, when instead of launching the page you need, your browser will display a message: “There was a problem on the proxy server.” Users of any browsers, including the most popular ones, can encounter such errors: Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Yandex.Browser. And now what i can do? Work stops, deadlines are on fire.

But that's no reason to panic. You need to clearly understand why your browser gave such an error and what to do to fix it as quickly as possible and with minimal consequences. Let's dwell on these points in more detail.

The main causes of errors in the operation of proxy servers

The work of a proxy server, like any other software, is based on certain settings that are responsible for the overall configuration of the system. It is with their help that special access to the Internet is provided (it differs from the standard one, as a variant – corporate network with restrictions). That is, they have a direct impact on the operation of the corresponding software. Therefore, the appearance of an error when starting the browser should make you think first of all about the presence of problems with the software.

Along with software malfunctions, experts also identify a number of other problems that can disable the proxy from working:

  1. Using software that conflicts with the basic settings of your mobile proxies. As an option – it can even be a shared port.
  2. Installation on the PC of extensions, programs that are incompatible with each other. This is especially true for self-updating software. There is a possibility that it is their update that can cause a failure.
  3. Additional connection to VPN servers. Virtual private networks often carry a serious potential threat. They can become a source of a virus, malicious software. And already it can adjust the Internet access settings at its own discretion, directing you not to the desired site, but to where the developer of this software would like it.
  4. Blocked by firewall or antivirus.
  5. Enable low-quality mobile proxies to work.

It is not uncommon for problems with proxy servers to occur on those browsers that are based on the same platform. But, despite this, the error can be displayed in different ways. But anyway, both Chrome and Opera and Firefox and Yandex.Browser will inform users that "No internet connection", and also provide a list of possible causes and ways to eliminate them, by type:

  1. There is a problem with the proxy server or the address is incorrect.
  2. Try the following: ask your system administrator for help, check the proxy server address, run diagnostics on your operating system, etc.

Now it remains to determine what to do with this and how to fix the error?

But, if we are talking about the operation of a large corporate network, which has differentiation in access levels, then such work should still be performed by system administrators.
