Using Wget to download our proxy list

If you are looking to download our proxy list on a linux computer one of the best ways to do that is with the WGET command. It should be formated like this..

First make sure you created a API link with the API link generator on our website then replace the link below with the one you created.

wget --connect-timeout=10 --read-timeout=10 -q -O /tmp/coolproxies.txt 'https://api.coolproxies.com/api.php?list=1&http=1&ping=500&apikey=YOuRApIKey13sd71'

This will create a file named coolproxies.txt in the /tmp directory that contains your proxy list. You can change it to any directory or file name you like, Just edit the line.

Please keep API polling to no more than once every 5 minutes.
