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 megaproxy.rotating.proxyrack.net:1500 -U USERNAME:PASSWORD refresh_timestamp -v * Rebuilt URL to: refresh_timestamp/ * Trying 188.8.131.52... * TCP_NODELAY set * Connected to 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11) 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 > 1524477900667
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.
