How do I check when the proxy will change?

When using the Sticky IP addresses you can get an exact unix timestamp as to when the exit node will change.

Simply make a HTTP or SOCKS request to the URL refresh_timestamp and a unix timestamp will be returned.

This timestamp indicates when the new exit node will be rotated in for this particular gateway.


$ curl -x -U USERNAME:PASSWORD refresh_timestamp -v
* Rebuilt URL to: refresh_timestamp/
*   Trying
* Connected to ( port 1581 (#0)
* Proxy auth using Basic with user 'USERNAME'
> GET http://refresh_timestamp/ HTTP/1.1
> Host: refresh_timestamp
> Proxy-Authorization: Basic 
> User-Agent: curl/7.54.0
> Accept: */*
> Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive

We also support the new command api.refresh_seconds which will display in how many seconds your Sticky port will rotate to a new IP address.

You may need to enter the HTTP protocol http://api.refresh_seconds when using your browser.
