I am trying to turn my old phone (Xiaomi mi5) into a 4G proxy server which I can use with different apps. for scraping data etc. I have been searching how to setup and i found some articles but they are not very clear. I am really a newbie and i have no idea how to set it up. I have bought 2 android apps Proxy Server pro and Servers Ultimate pro having trouble configuring it.

These are the steps I have followed:

Servers Ultimate pro
-add a proxy server
in general tab I didn´t touch anything

-rules tab and added a new rule HOST CONTAINS: i put my public ip address which i found at myip.com
REPLY WITH THIS IP: 127.0.0.1 Port: 1080

Now, when I try to test it I get no connection.

  • You can run tinyproxy from commandline. See my answer to using your android phone as a proxy server Feb 19 at 22:05
  • unfortunately nope i have already checked that question. Basically it explains how to setup a proxy server via wifi, but i need it with mobile data. The thing is that when i use another app called Allproxy which is a fremium app it works it gives me the protocol://user:pass@host:port and it works it means that the ports from my ISP are opened and not blocked. But this app steals your data so i have heard and i don´t want to risk. I want to set it up myself via Servers Ultimate pro or Proxy Server pro. About your answer in that post i checked it but i am unable to code at all. Feb 19 at 22:13
  • I still don't see the point in running a proxy on a mobile network only device. Are there any sites or resources that are only accessible from within the network of your cellphone provider?

    @IrfanLatif In Germany T-Mobile AFAIK has some older business plans with public IP. Also data plans dedicated for IoT may have a public IP, of course only by large old corporations which get their (large) IP range early in the Internet history so that they now still have enough IPv4 addresses.

    @IrfanLatif i am definitely going to give it a try but in this case i would need a vps right? (which would be another extra monthly cost for me) Feb 20 at 15:53
