Error with proxy

Hi, I keep getting this error once wanting to connect with a proxy server. Though the proxy works fine, I’ve been using it on chrome and also tried it on mbot and works fine.

[10:19:59] Connecting to the gateway server [66.70.XXX.XX6:15779] through XX.254.8.XX:1080

[10:19:59] Socket address not available error


Did you accidentally select a bind IP when you started the bot? Check phBot.ini for the line BindIP.

The BindIP shows my local ip addess, for example

You might want to try deleting it.

That was it, what does the bindip do?

Binds the connection to a specific IP address. It’s needed when you have multiple interfaces and want the bot to connect over a specific one.

Is this option exists on manager or can be added ?

To set a bind IP? No. It requires multiple bot folders.


Not that I want this feature, but why there are multiply bot folders required? Doesn’t it get handeld by command line args?
--bindip arg Bind address


It will get saved to phBot.ini then all bots will be using it.

No. If you change network devices the HWID will change though.
