Default Possibility of using different proxies

Those who use rapidshare and do not have a Premium account we have to wait long between downloads, unlike megaupload. So I think it would be nice that we could assign a proxy address to a specific file in order to get a faster download. Because otherwise you perpetuate.

Greetings.

You can't do that at the moment, but the programmers are working on better proxy support.

As a workaround you can launch multiple instance of jD (don't start them from the same folder) and set a different proxy server for each instance.

I don't know what the concept behind the proxy implementation is that you're currently programming. But it would be nice if the user could specify a list of proxy and JD would use a different proxy for each download.

Unfortunately I can't use the reconnect function. So rotating through a list of proxy would be a nice alternative solution.

They might be programming something that looks like the proxy rotation extension that has been tested in the Nightly test version of jD.

Everything would be managed by jD and you only need to specify working proxy servers.

As soon as jD detects that a link needs to wait it'll try the next proxy server address you specified.

That sounds wondeful to me. When will it be available in the offical stable build? And don't say "it's done when it's done" - I can't wait 15 years for that extension.

You'll probably have that already next year.

This is a feature that I expect to come with the next major release of jD. According to my calculations a few months ago the next major release of jD is expected in July 2012. The data might have slightly changed since my last estimate.

July next year? What a pity. I thought it would be released a lot earlier. :(
But I guess they need to do some changes on the core of JD and this is the reason why it will take some time.

I'm really looking forward to it.

If jD's programmers want to integrate all the features they plan for that release then it might even take longer, because I don't see any progress in the closed/open ratio of the change requests.

It's not clear whether


supports multiple, simultaneous proxy servers or just will rotate through a list.

Thanks for searching and posting the ticket. But doesn't mean that closed tickets are already finished (by solving it or by dumping it)? Means that enhanced proxy support won't be implemented.

I don't know why jiaz wrote in his/her first comment that there will only be a proxy rotation means for every download a different proxy will be used so you don't need to wait between downloads from the same site. Technical it should also be possible to download files simultaneously from the same site. I guess the big problem about proxies is that I don't know how this sites are handling proxy requests. Do they allow it? Maybe only transparent proxies (if there is maybe a difference between a transparent proxy and a normal one on their side of the IP connection - I don't know as I'm not a network specialist). Maybe they have a black list of some well known open proxies. Or maybe they just use cookies (which should be the easiest method) to prevent multiple downloads from the same user / machine.

The ticket is linked to a thread in this board that describes a multiple, simultaneous proxy server feature.

coalado set the target version to "JDownloader - FarfarAway", which makes me believe that his estimate/plan corresponds to the original requirement.

Since Jiaz wrote that comment in the ticket and closed it as well I tend to believe that he's just referring to that proxy rotation extension that has been tested in the Nightly version of jD.

This story shows that despite a good database of requirements it isn't easy to avoid misunderstandings.

Concerning the type of proxy servers to use, I doubt the hosts keep a list of public proxy servers, because it changes every minute. The problem with open proxies is that they tend to be used by many people. This makes them slow as well.

The best approach is to pay for proxy servers and then you're sure that you've exclusivity and fast proxies.

I don't think cookies are a problem.
