A Guide to Configuring Request Ranger for Optimal Performance

This page will help you set up and configure Request Ranger to suit your needs and ensure that you get the most out of the application. Follow the steps below to customize your proxy settings, manage app preferences, and tailor Request Ranger to your specific requirements.

1. Install Request Ranger

Before you can set up and configure Request Ranger, you must install the application on your macOS or iOS device. You can do this by downloading it from the Apple App Store, or by following the Installation guide to download the latest release from GitHub or build the application yourself.

2. Launch Request Ranger

Once installed, open Request Ranger on your macOS or iOS device. The application will open to the main window, displaying the "Proxy" tab by default.

3. Configure Proxy Settings

To start using Request Ranger, you'll need to configure your proxy settings:

  1. In the "Proxy" tab, click on "Start Proxy" to enable the proxy server.

  2. Take note of the proxy server address and port displayed in the application (e.g., localhost:8080).

  3. Configure your web browser to use the proxy server address and port provided by Request Ranger. The process for doing this varies depending on the browser you're using. We recommend using Firefox for testing, as it supports HTTP and HTTPS proxies at the application level.

4. Manage App Preferences

Access Request Ranger's preferences to customize the application to your needs:

  1. In the macOS menu bar, click on "Request Ranger" and select "Preferences" from the dropdown menu.

  2. In the Preferences window, you can adjust settings such as the proxy server port, appearance, and more.

5. Configure Security Settings (Optional)

Request Ranger is designed with security in mind, but you can further enhance your security by taking the following steps:

  1. Use a separate browser profile for testing to isolate your proxy sessions from your regular browsing activities.

  2. Regularly review and update your proxy settings to ensure they remain secure and effective.

  3. Stay up-to-date with the latest Request Ranger releases and apply security patches as needed.
