Hi All


I'm in need of some clarification in regards to my proxy setup.


What's the difference between setting up proxy on the osx network interface(and connecting via airvpn udp/tcp 443) vs. using airvpn config with proxy?.

My current setup is I use a proxy on osx network interface(http port 8080) and connecting via airvpn server(udp 443). I have managed to meet my objectives which are to unblock certain websites and faster http file sharing downloads via download manager(e.g uploaded). Is my setup correct, anonymous and secure?.


What's the difference when using the config-with-proxy (airvpn) because when I check my ip, it's the airvpn exit node and not of the proxy. I have a download manager that only mainly relies on osx main proxy interface( the app needs password authentification for proxy unlike a browser's setup), so, so far my current setup allows me to meet my objectives. Hope to get more clarification on this. Thanks a mill'!
