Use the AOL Proxy for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and any other Application

I have been a long time AOL hacker. People recently have been telling me that it is "impossible" to use the AOL proxy in a Broadband environment because AOL has disabled it. I found this, to my surprise as being true, AOL did disable it, however, I still found a trick to get it working again. This is not impossible. If you want to use the AOL proxy for 3rd party applications then listen up, this article was written for you. First thing you need to do is create an AOL account at AOL.com. It is free now so don't worry about paying anything. Once you have created a screen name, you are ready to download the AOL 9.5 software (which works in Windows 7). Download and install this software. If you haven't created a name yet you can now use the AOL client to create a free screen name for AOL. Now sign off of AOL since you probably are using a Broadband cable modem, or DSL connection, AOL will have automatically determined your connection type as "Broadband"...


When you are at the Sign-On window, click the button that says "Connect Options"...


This should be the window you see now...the next step, is to click "Advanced Broadband Settings"...


At this window click the Dropdown menu in the top right that says "Broadband" and select "Add Broadband Profile" If there are no other profiles yet, instead of a dropdown, it may be in the form of a link to click...just look for "Add Broadband Profile"...


You should be now looking at a window similar to this, name your profile anything you wish so that you know this is the modified profile for using the aol proxy with 3rd party applications. For the purpose of this demonstration, I will use the profile name "Bong Hack". Now just add the profile...


Now that you have added a new Broadband Profile with the name of your choice, make sure under "Connection Type" you change it to say "Home Network". This MUST NOT say Broadband. The Broadband connection type is what AOL has blocked having 3rd party proxy access. Make sure you Save your changes, and go back to the Sign-On screen. Log in to AOL using the username and password that you have created, along with using your new connection profile. Once you are online set the proxy settings on the software of your choice to point to the following proxy...

Host: www.proxy.aol.com
Port: 80

I hope that you have enjoyed this walkthrough, and I hope it helps you get past stupid IP bans on the site of your choice. Have fun, and happy hacking! Remember: Don't do anything illegal or stupid with the AOL proxy...Just because it is not showing your IP doesn't mean the Feds can't find you. Everything is stored on an AOL Database....Just a heads up...If you liked this article, then please become a follower of this blog. Thank you.

**NOTE** If your new connection is not connecting be sure to sign on using the normal "Broadband" connection profile first. Then sign-off, and re-connect with the edited profile. Now it will work. **NOTE**
