How to Set Up Proxies With SocksDroid

Follow this quick guide on how to set up Oxylabs Residential and Dedicated Datacenter Proxies with SocksDroid to route your device’s web traffic through SOCKS5 proxies.

Proxy Integration With SocksDroid

What is SocksDroid?

SocksDroid is a mobile app for connecting to SOCKS5 proxies using Android’s VpnService. It routes the entire traffic from your applications to a specified server.

SocksDroid doesn’t run a VPN service. Instead, the app gives you the ability to quickly set up your own VPN server with self-acquired proxies.

Setting up proxies with SocksDroid

1. To configure Oxylabs SOCKS5 proxies, specify the following details under Connection.

Residential Proxies

Server IP: pr.oxylabs.io

Server Port: 7777

You can also use country-specific entries. For example, entering it-pr.oxylabs.io under Server IP and 20000 under Server Port will acquire an Italian exit node. Please refer to our documentation for a complete list of country-specific entry nodes or if you need a sticky session.

Enterprise Dedicated Datacenter Proxies

Server IP: a specific IP address (1.2.3.4)

Server Port: 60000

For Enterprise Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, you’ll have to choose an IP address from the acquired list. Please refer to our documentation for more details.

Self-Service Dedicated Datacenter Proxies

Server IP: ddc.oxylabs.io

Server Port: 8001

For Self-Service Dedicated Datacenter Proxies, the port indicates the sequential number of an IP address from the acquired list.

ISP Proxies

Server IP: isp.oxylabs.io

Server Port: 8001

2. Enable authentication and enter your Oxylabs proxy user’s credentials. Use the same username and password you entered to create a new proxy user in the Oxylabs dashboard.
