Naukri is an online employment website that’s mainly used in India and other middle-eastern countries. Job seekers have an easy time finding jobs in Naukri as it has a strong search engine and companies are grouped according to their respective industries. It also has a lot of tools that help job seekers like a Skills Trend tool that identifies what skills employers are currently looking for.
Naukri has a lot of valuable employment data available on their site. This data can be useful in many cases such as trends on recent hirings in your industry or knowledge on what your competitors are doing. To gather all that data manually though would take a lot of time and effort so it’s best to utilize a web scraping tool to do the job for you.
When you extract data from a website using a web scraper, most websites will detect the fact that you’re using an automation tool and will immediately ban you. To prevent this from happening, you need to utilize a Naukri proxy as it will help you avoid any ban that will come your way.
So, let’s set up a Naukri proxy server.
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.
