I am using a Mac with El Capitan not Sierra. I have installed Virtual Box on it to host a Windows 7 guest.
From the Windows 7 guest there are only two states for the proxy toggle button:
- green closed
- red open
both with tooltip saying simply epic proxy.
Clicking on it pops a menu choose a country for the proxy.
What does this choice mean and should I choose the proxy closer to my physical location?
But on the Mac El Capitan there are three possible states for the proxy toggle button:
- green closed, with tooltip saying "click to disable proxy globally"
In this state I cannot access any site. I get a ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED error.
- green closed with a magnifier icon and tooltip saying "this site is being accessed via proxy click to enable proxy globally
In this state I can access bing (my homepage) but I cannot access any other site, upon navigating to them, the proxy icon truns red and open
-open red with a tooltip saying "click to enable proxy globally"
Could you explain this behavior and how to use this proxy/VPN on windows and mac?
Thank you very much for the great work
