4. In the new fields, enter the proxy server address, port, username and password. These were provided to you at checkout and emailed to you. You can also retrieve them from the Control Panel. The server address will be similar to xxxxxxx.getfoxyproxy.org and the port is almost always 3128 or 13129 (both work the same). Turn on authentication and enter the username/password provided to you.
