Badlion is a Minecraft client where users can utilize it to launch and manage Minecraft. It can help you enhance your gaming experience when playing Minecraft with its variety of features. Badlion has plenty of mods already built-in, FPS boosters like Optifine, anti-cheat mechanisms if you want to set up a multiplayer server, and many more.
When playing on Minecraft servers that are quite a distance away from you, you would normally experience lag and high latency. Any player would not have a good time when playing on high latency so it’s best to avoid it. You can remove lag and have a low latency if you use a Badlion proxy.
Through a Badlion proxy, you can have low latency because you can connect to a proxy server that is close to the geographical location of the Minecraft server you want to play on. A Badlion proxy will also handle all of your web requests for you, which lets you play anonymously and protect your personal information from people with malicious intent.
The best Badlion proxies would be either residential proxies or datacenter proxies. If you want to play with total anonymity and full protection of your online identity, then residential proxies should be your choice. If you want a faster internet connection and reduced latency, then datacenter proxies are the best for you.
Let’s set up your Badlion proxy server.
Note: Badlion will automatically copy your operating system’s proxy settings.
To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.
You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.
If you chose the first option, then:
- Turn on Automatically detect Settings
- Turn on Use setup script
- Enter the script address
- Click Save
If you chose the second option, then:
- Turn on Use a proxy server
- Input both server address and port number
- If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
- Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
- Click Save
To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:
Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.
Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.
Step 3. Click on “Network”
Step 4. Click on “Advanced”
Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.
Step 5. Click on “Proxies”
This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
- Turn on Secure Web Proxy
- Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
- Click OK to save the configurations
Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.
Congratulations! You have now finished configuring a Badlion proxy server for your operating system.
