Red face VPN Lifeguard - How to implement

HI,
This is somewhat a stupid question because once (long time ago) I managed this to work but I have *utterly* forgotten how to set it up . Sorry in advance.

In any case, I have a number of proxies (paid) I routinely use. I set up the proxies (manually) in Windows 7 (yes, I am still using W7) and then use the app VPN Lifeguard (VPNL) to do the handling. The app connects to the selected proxy, watches over selected apps, kills the apps if the proxy disconnects and re-connects automatically. It is basically a glorified GUI front-end for W7 proxy handling.


As far as I can remember, the last time I "stumbled upon" a functionality in JD2 which was ideal for my use. I just run a JD2 macro recorder to record the steps I take to manually disconnect, wait and re-connect to the selected proxy via VPNL. As this is a simple GUI, this is a no brainer. No scripts required. It worked beautifully!!!

The advantage of doing this is that my internet connection remains viable all the time (the proxy operates per-machine - I have several) and as the proxy provider has several IPs per proxy, they rotate automatically at the server level for every connect/disconnect cycle. In other words, I don't have to rotate proxies manually to change IPs.

So far so go. Now for the hard part. How do I do this? I can't find the instructions... help please...

Parts of your post sound as if you've previously used a reconnect script to let JD trigger a proxy rotation to get around limits.

You can of course still do that but only you can know which script you've used back then^^
If it's only about using VPNs in JDownloader, we got a support article about that here:

Hi. Tx for the reply but that's not the issue at all.
I do not use scripts. I don't have the need to do so.
As explained, all IP rotations are handled at the proxy server level (i.e. the provider's server). All I have to do is to disconnect and re-connect for it to happen.
In practical terms, all I need is a macro recorder that will press the Stop button, wait about 10 seconds, press the Star button, wait 10 seconds and it is done (please see picture below).



I remember the last time I set up the macro recording in JD2 I was amazed at how easy and trivial it was. I think it was 2 or 3 steps. But now I can't find the setting to do it.

Okay I get what you mean.

There is no "macro recorder" or similar implemented in JD.
You can e.g. use the myjd API to start/stop JD with external applications:

Tx for the effort, but your instructions are not clear. What "exit menu"? What "Write macro" button? Please clarify. Tx.
