-===== Proxy Tutorial ===== 
  
-Your Xirvik seedbox comes equipped with its own proxy.\\ This is good because it anonymizes your connection, preventing people from finding your actual location.\\ ​ 
- 
-Before we begin, please navigate to your Xirvik server page. 
- 
-At the top of the page you'll find text that reads "​**Your server IP address: xx.xx.xx.xx**"​.\\ Copy the numbers, we will need them later.\\ For an example of what to look for, see the image below. 
- 
-{{::​prx1.png|}} 
- 
-This tutorial covers how to use your Xirvik proxy with several different browsers.\\ Please follow the directions for all of the browers that you'd like to be protected through your server'​s proxy.\\ You may skip to the bottom at any time for instructions on how to test the connection.\\ ​
