Migration Notes


Proxifier settings located in the Profile menu together are referred to as a profile. This includes Proxy Servers, Proxification Rules, Name Resolution and others. Settings available under Log menu are not included in a profile.

Proxifier automatically saves the current profile (without prompting) on any change. You can save the profile with a specific name by File->Save Profile As... and load it later with File->Load Profile. The name of the active profile is displayed at the title of the main window.
You can easily navigate and load profiles with the toolbar button:


To import or export a profile from/to a file use the Import or Export commands of the File menu respectively. With Import you can import settings from the old versions of Proxifier (prx-files).

You can also manage profiles at the file level with File->Manage Profiles... command.

Proxifier profiles are user specific. Each user account on the computer has its own private set of profiles.

However, it is possible to specify one global profile for all users on the computer. To do this, just export the profile as “Default.ppx” (File->Export Profile) and save it as:
“/Library/Application Support/Proxifier/Profiles/Default.ppx”
If the file exists Proxifier loads this profile on start automatically for all users.

Proxifier v2 uses XML for profile files. The format is human readable and self-explanatory. You can edit the content with any third party tools and scripts.
Profiles can contain passwords for proxy servers. To protect this information Proxifier supports encryption. You can change encryption options at Encryption tab of Profile->Advanced Options.

The same settings are requested anytime you use Export Profile.

The description of each option is provided in the dialog window above.

When Profile master password is used Proxifier asks it each time the profile is loaded (including at startup).

You can save this password within the current user account with the Remember checkbox.
Proxifier will not load the profile until the correct password is specified.
If you enter an incorrect password, Proxifier will ask you to repeat or load the profile with blank passwords.
