Dropin replacement for existing super-proxies

Proxy Manager comes with a "dropin mode" which behaves exactly like the existing super-proxies. When running a proxy in dropin mode, you do not need to sign in via the administrative UI in order to make requests through your proxies. Rather, the proxy username and password are provided with each request to the proxy server. This mode is enabled by default, and you can use this mode as an easy replacement when migrating from the regular super-proxy to the Proxy Manager.

Dropin mode is enabled by default. To disable the dropin proxy, use the flag --no-dropin:

proxy-manager --no-dropin

For full documentation on the API for making requests through the dropin proxy, see the API Example page in your Bright Data account.

A docker image can be found on https://hub.docker.com/r/luminati/luminati-proxy/

docker pull luminati/luminati-proxy

docker run luminati/luminati-proxy proxy-manager

docker run luminati/luminati-proxy proxy-manager --version

Make sure to forward appropriate ports. Proxy manager uses by default 22999 for the web console and the api, 22225 for dropin and 24000 for first configurable proxy.

  • To run docker with cli option see the below example:
docker run luminati/luminati-proxy proxy-manager --www_whitelist_ips "" --ssl true

You can add many more options to this run.

Docker with predefined config file

To use lpm's config file, docker volumes can be used: https://docs.docker.com/storage/volumes/

Following these instructions will make your docker run with a specific config file:

  • create volume
docker volume create lpm-vol
  • Inspect the recently created volume
docker inspect lpm-vol

Should output something like this:

        "CreatedAt": "2018-02-01T12:59:58+02:00",
        "Driver": "local",
        "Labels": null,
        "Mountpoint": "/var/lib/docker/volumes/lpm-vol/_data",
        "Name": "lpm-vol",
        "Options": {},
        "Scope": "local"
  • Take the mountpoint path /var/lib/docker/volumes/lpm-vol/_data and run
cd /var/lib/docker/volumes/lpm-vol/_data
  • put .luminati.json to this directory (here also will be the logs and other files generated by the container)
  • run docker image and attach this volume:
  docker run --rm --name 'lpm1' --mount source=lpm-vol,target=/root
"luminati/luminati-proxy" proxy-manager

SSL Requests

The --ssl parameter is for SSL analyzing, HTTPS requests can be made without it.
