How to create your own 4G/5G mobile proxies

A mobile proxy is a type of proxy server that operates using an authenticated SIM card from a mobile operator that supports 4G/5G standards. Unlike other proxy types, the connection is made through the mobile network of the operator, giving the user access to a dedicated pool of IP addresses. These addresses can rotate at predetermined intervals or can be changed on demand. The key advantage of using a mobile proxy is its high trust factor and the low likelihood of being blocked.

Benefits of creating your own mobile proxies

Creating your own mobile proxy farm using a 4G/5G network offers several advantages that can benefit both individual users and small to medium-sized businesses:

  • Economic benefit – in the long run, operating your own mobile proxy farm can be more cost-effective than renting mobile proxies or other types of proxies from providers.
  • Highest level of privacy – owning the equipment allows you to control access completely, ensuring that no unwanted users have access to your proxies.
  • Full control – users have the autonomy to manage the operation of their proxy server, customize settings, configure access and limits, and monitor traffic consumption as needed.
  • High uptime – by maintaining the necessary conditions for equipment operation, users can ensure high stability and continuous service.

Next, we will explore the specific equipment required to build your own mobile proxy farm.

Equipment required for mobile proxy creation:

To set up your mobile proxy from scratch, you'll need specific equipment and a management environment. Here's what you need to create and configure a 4G/LTE/5G mobile proxy:

  • SIM card – this is essential for creating a mobile proxy. It is advisable to opt for a reliable mobile operator that offers an unlimited data plan.
  • Modem – necessary for connecting and activating the SIM card, and for managing the proxy. Keep in mind that each modem can accommodate only one SIM card, which is an important consideration when setting up a proxy farm.
  • USB hub – required for connecting multiple modems simultaneously. Hubs with 10-20 ports are commonly used for connecting several modems.
  • Host – any computer with a clean Linux OS installation can serve as the host. TV tuners are often utilized for this purpose due to their compactness and cost-efficiency, which are beneficial when scaling proxy farms.
  • Mobile proxy control panel – this tool facilitates the convenient configuration and management of proxy farms.

Next, we will examine the operational principle of the mobile control panel and the process of connecting the aforementioned equipment to the panel.

Creating mobile proxies through a Proxy-Seller platform

To effectively manage mobile proxies, it is crucial to utilize a high-quality control panel that offers a user-friendly interface alongside diverse functionality. Proxy-Seller provides an economical solution that maximizes the utility of your mobile proxies.

The control panel operates on a subscription basis, with payments made for each modem. This payment structure allows for cost savings by not charging for inactive modems and does not limit the functionality of the entire account. Currently, the available plans include Basic and Advanced options, as well as a custom solution for enterprise clients:

  • Basic – provides all essential modem management functions and the ability to export proxies in a user-friendly format. This plan is suitable for most general users.
  • Advanced – offers all the basic functions plus additional capabilities such as user and limit management, domain connection, SMS functionality, and a log of IP address changes. Designed for more advanced users.
  • Enterprise – tailored for clients with large-scale operations, this custom solution is developed based on the specific needs of large businesses.

For customers planning to build their own proxy farm from scratch and who do not yet have the necessary equipment, there are several starter kits available. These kits vary based on the number of modems included, allowing customers to select a package that best suits their needs.

The starter kit encompasses the cost of the specified equipment and its delivery. It's important to note that the subscription for the service is not included in the starter kit and must be purchased separately.

Before you begin using the mobile panel, it's necessary to configure and synchronize the equipment according to the instructions provided in the knowledge base of your mobile panel account.

Synchronizing equipment with the control panel:

After connecting the equipment and all included cables, you need to start the host device and log in to the operating system with root rights.

Next, follow these steps to set up your mobile panel account from another device:

  1. Access the “Setup” tab on the main page:
  2. From the drop-down menu, select an aggregator server, such as Germany. It's recommended to choose a server country close to the location of your equipment for the best connection quality.
  3. Click the “Get command” button to receive the synchronization command:
  4. Enter the received command on the host device. The command will follow a specific format: curl -4k -o /tmp/start; sudo bash /tmp/start
  5. If the connection is successful, the system will display a confirmation message “OK!!!”, and the synchronized host will appear in the “Home” tab of your mobile panel:
  6. The connected modems with SIM cards will be listed on the host, where you can then subscribe and begin using the mobile panel.

Next, we will explore the key features of the mobile panel to better understand the options and functionalities available to users.

Features of the mobile proxy control panel:

After successfully registering and logging into your account, the control panel will appear as follows:

In addition to displaying the balance and the status of active/inactive modems on the left, the account settings on the right include the following functionalities:

  • Changing user data;
  • Setting up authorization data for all account modems;
  • Removing duplicates;

  • Adding your domains to manage proxy/IP status and reboots;
  • Implementing APIs tailored to your specific needs.

The mobile panel consists of three main sections: “Home”, “Setup”, and “Knowledge Base”.

  • “Home” serves as the main workspace where all connected hosts and modems are displayed. This section is used for managing and configuring equipment.
  • “Setup” is dedicated to the configuration, connection, and synchronization of your equipment with the mobile panel.
  • “Knowledge Base” provides a repository of frequently asked questions and detailed instructions for setting up the panel on various devices.

In the “Home” section of the mobile panel, users have access to the following functionalities:

  • Export a list of all modems in your preferred format;
  • Buttons to control the operation of the selected modem, including pause, activation, and deactivation;
  • Option to select a tariff and payment method for the selected modem;
  • View the history of IP address changes for the selected modem;
  • Access to modem user management, where you can add or remove users, change authorization types and data, and manage traffic consumption by individual users;
  • Setting restrictions on traffic consumption for the entire host or specific modems;
  • Deleting selected inactive modems.

The interface for the list of modems on the host is user-friendly and allows for monitoring and managing mobile proxies effectively. You can track:


  • Key information about the modem, including serial number, model, and established tariff;
