Your FoxyProxy accounts come with both proxy and VPN service.
These instructions explain how to connect to your VPN accounts using a method called IPSec. This is the preferred means to connect to your VPN account. If this does not work, try connecting using PPTP or OpenVPN.
Step 1 of 7: Open ‘System Preferences’, then click ‘Network’. You can find ‘System Preferences’ by clicking ‘Spotlight Search’ (magnifying glass in the upper-right of your computer) and typing ‘System Preferences’
Step 2 of 7: Press ‘+’ button to create a new service
Step 3 of 7: Select Interface – VPN, VPN Type – Cisco IPSec. Leave Service Name alone or change it whatever you like — it is not important here. and press the ‘Create’ button.
Step 4 of 7: Enter Server Address (for example foobar.getfoxyproxy.org), Account Name (username), and Password. Click Show VPN status in menu bar, then press the Authentication Settings button
Step 4 of 7: Enter the Shared Secret foxyproxy. No spaces, no quotations, nothing extra. Then click the OK button.
Step 5 of 7: Click the Connect button.
Step 6 of 7: The screen will say Connecting… then Connected. PLEASE NOTE: some versions of MacOS have a bug whereby this text always remains at Connecting… and does not change to Connected. This is OK. You can test that you are connected in steps 7 and 8.
Step 7 of 7: Are you connected? Click the VPN icon in the system tray. Does it say Disconnect VPN or Connect VPN? If it says disconnect, then you are currently connected. If it says connect, then you are not currently connected.
