How do I install and run Freegate?
You may download and run the tool without any installation. Just double click the executible. Your IE browser will launch and open the Dynaweb homepage. You can fill in the address of the website you want to visit in the input box and click “Anonymous Surfing”.
How do I uninstall Freegate?
All you need is to delete the the software executible.
I set my default browser as Firefox, but Freegate opens IE instead.
By default, when the tool runs in Proxy Mode, it automatically sets the proxy of IE to 127.0.0.1:8580, and opens Dynaweb homepage in IE, regardless of your default browser setting. You can conveniently visit any website by typing the address on the IE address bar directly, just the same way as when you are not using the program.
Can I use Freegate with Firefox or other browsers?
Yes, of course. You just need to manually set the browser HTTP proxy to 127.0.0.1:8580 before you can surf the Internet. If you use Firefox, you can install the GProxy Add-on and use it to conveniently set the proxy.
Every time I download the app, the executable is different in size and md5sum.
To circumvent some anti-virus and firewall products’ mistaken identification of the software as a back-door Trojan, it has provided multiple variants of the same Free VPN software for download. The download links are displayed one at a time. All variants of the tool are functionally identical. In the meantime, it is contacting the software vendors to correct this mis-classification.
What is the difference between Proxy Mode and Classic Mode?
The app has two running modes, namely Proxy Mode and Classic Mode. In Proxy Mode which is the default, the program automatically sets IE’s proxy. You can directly enter any URL in the Internet browser‘s address bar and securely visit that website. In Classic Mode, you do not need to setup a browser’s proxy and can directly access Dynaweb’s home page. You can then securely visit any overseas website via Dynaweb’s home page. In Classic Mode, layout and formatting of some websites may not be correctly displayed. We recommend Proxy Mode for best surfing experience. Some users prefer to classic mode to be reminded that he is surfing through Dynaweb.
Can I use my own proxy server when using Freegate?
Yes, please make sure your proxy server is working. After the app is launched, please go to “Server” tab, and click “Proxy Settings” button, a new window pops up, click “Manually Set Proxy + Freegate”, and fill in your proxy server address and port. Next time when you launch the tool, you will see this window and can fill in your proxy server for the app to use to connect to the Internet. Encrypted traffic will pass through the proxy server you set.
What shall I configure in my Firewall to be able to use Freegate?
This program needs to connect out in order to work. If you have a firewall installed on your computer, when you launch the software, your firewall may pop up a window asking if you allow the app to connect. Please choose allow. If your firewall does not pop up and the tool cannot find servers, please check your firewall rules and make sure it does not block Free gate.
