If you are on a network that requires you to use a proxy server to get to the internet you will need to do a couple of things to make the vpn work properly. Currently we support HTTP and SOCKS proxies.

    1. Open the WiTopia Client Software
    2. Click on custom gateway
    3. You will need to set the following items:
      • Name: You can choose the name
      • Protocol: openVPN
      • Server: Input the name or IP of the server you want to connect to
      • Port: Normally 443 or 80
      • Transport: TCP Very Important

  1. Click Save
  2. Click on the Advanced tab
  3. In the box input ONE of the following proxy types: 1111 is only and example do not use
      • Authenticated Proxy (most common)

      • Unauthenticated Proxy

      • Socks Proxy

  4. Click Save

You will now be able to use your local network’s proxy with your WiTopia services. Please see your network admin for your proxy IP and proxy port as this will be unique to your local network.
