This section describes IP targeting and controlling via parameters in Username.


To target IP of a specific country, specify the 2-letter country code (US, GB, FR, IN, AU etc.):

curl --proxytunnel --proxy "" --proxy-user "customer-USERNAME-country-us:PASSWORD"


A sticky session will issue a different IP for each unique session ID and will return the same IP in case the same ID is used. The maximum session time is up to 10 minutes.

curl --proxytunnel --proxy "" --proxy-user "customer-USERNAME-country-us-sessionid-123456789:PASSWORD"


To target IP of a specific state:

curl --proxytunnel --proxy "" --proxy-user "customer-USERNAME-state-us_california:PASSWORD"

Note: The state parameter will have priority against Country, so if used together those headers will be ignored.


To target IP of a specific city:

curl --proxytunnel --proxy "" --proxy-user "customer-USERNAME-city-us_los_angeles:PASSWORD"

Note: The city header will have priority against State and Country, so if used together those headers will be ignored.
