First run

After running the app for the first time:


Point your browser to the app admin UI to set up credentials
and configure your proxies.

After logging in, you will see that the default configuration for the Luminati
proxy includes a "dropin" proxy running on port 22225. This mode is explained
in detail below.

Dropin replacement for existing super-proxies

Luminati Proxy comes with a "dropin mode" which behaves exactly like the
existing super-proxies. When running a proxy in dropin mode, you do not need to
log in via the administrative UI in order to make requests through your
proxies. Rather, the proxy username and password are provided with each request
to the proxy server. This mode is enabled by default, and you can use this mode
as an easy replacement when migrating from the regular super-proxy to the
Luminati Proxy Manager.

Dropin mode is enabled by default. To disable the dropin proxy, use the flag

luminati --no-dropin

For full documentation on the API for making requests through the dropin proxy,
see <a href="">the
API Example page in your account</a>.

A docker image can be found on

docker pull luminati/luminati-proxy

docker run luminati/luminati-proxy

docker run luminati/luminati-proxy luminati --version

Make sure to forward appropriate ports. Proxy manager uses by default 22999
for the web console and the api, 22555 for dropin and 24000 for first
configurable proxy.

SSL Requests

The --ssl parameter is for SSL analyzing, HTTPS requests can be made without it.


The FAQ can be found on the luminati

Working documentation of the API can be found inside the app.

A non-working version of it can be found here

Node.js API

The proxy manager can be used as a required module for node.js applications - eliminating the need to run it as a standalone process.

The API supports both Promises and Generators. Internally, it uses the request module and supports all of its features.
