[Use EPS to Set the Proxy for IE and Firefox]

Double click the proxy in the list and that's all. Elite Proxy Switcher will do all the work above for you, both for Firefox and IE.

Download the EPS here:Elite Proxy Switcher (http://www.eliteproxyswitcher.com/)

You can get some proxies from our forum (http://forum.my-proxy.com/high-anonymous-proxies/) or proxy list (http://www.my-proxy.com/free-proxy-list.html). Please test the proxies by Elite Proxy Switcher (http://www.eliteproxyswitcher.com) before using them because proxies die fast (http://forum.my-proxy.com/proxy-questions/why-proxies-always-die-quickly-93.0.html). After setting the proxy, you can surf http://www.find-ip.net/ to check whether your IP is changed.

Hi,

I've tried this and it doesn't work for me. Do I need to download special software, or do I just have to keep trying different IP addresses until I find one that works?

Yes, the latest version of EPS supports that function.

This guide covers rather basic user-level proxy setup.

But maybe you can also suggest some software like OpenVPN, which I can install on my own CentOS 7 VPS, which can later be used as a proxy, but not for all traffic from my Windows machine, but for browser only?
Preferably by enabling/disabling some browser extension or doing something similar.

I know about OpenVPN and similar tools, but they are usually designed to have all the traffic sent through them, while I need that only for a few sites, which can't be opened directly.
