  1. Hello, I want to use http://publicproxyservers.com to download via rapdishare beating the daily download limit, but I don't know how to do it, can someone explain please?

    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks
     
  2. Firefox: Tools->Options->Advanced->Network->Connection (Settings). Select Manual configuration and at HTTP proxy set one of the IPs (including ports) from http://publicproxyservers.com lists.

    For IE8: Tools->Internet Options->Connections->LAN settings->Proxy server.

    Edit: Don't expect to download with very high speed though. Most of those proxy servers work at almost dial-up speed.
    Also remember to deactivate the proxy connection after the download for normal browsing as some proxyies are set to log your trafic and others may be set to steal personal data.
