Although quite different from a VPN, we provide a SOCKS5 Proxy with all accounts in the event users require this feature.
Our SOCKS5 Proxy is available at: proxy-nl.privateinternetaccess.com port 1080
You will require a different username and password to use the SOCKS5 proxy. These usernames and passwords are generated from the Client Control Panel.
- Log in to the Client Control Panel.
- Click the Generate Password button under the Generate PPTP/L2TP/SOCKS Password section.
- A Username starting with "x" and a random Password will be shown.
- You must use this username and password to login to PPTP, L2TP, or SOCKS.
Beginning with v1.4.0, the desktop application now supports using a SOCKS5 proxy to connect to the VPN server. For more information about this new feature please review the following article here
