[EASY] Guide to free VPN (Virtual Private Network) -Better Than Proxy-

Recommended Posts

I will list here free method for hiding/changing your IP, that I use to bot and do other nasty things on internet.

 

 

What is VPN?

 

Virtual Private Networks create an encrypted ‘tunnel’ between your computer and the host server, with the internet traffic going in and out of the host server. Your ISP or government can only see that you have connected to the VPN server and nothing else – your activities, IP addresses you have visited etc. are all completely hidden from them behind a minimum of 128-bit encryption.

 

 

Method #1 (Soft Ether + vpngate plugin)

 

1. Download this software.

http://download.vpngate.jp/common/cd.aspx/vpngate-client-2014.09.08-build-9473.130565.zip

2. Install it/unzip it and run it.

 

3. Click on "VPN Gate Public VPN Relay Servers".

 

4. Find a suitable server for you, if you want a decent speed you want it as close to you as possible.

 

5. Click "Connect" and Select "TCP" protocole and hit "OK".

 

6. You now have free VPN connection and your IP is changed.

 

7. Check your IP:

https://www.google.co.uk/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=_nwMVMuUH5KAUJb1gHA&gws_rd=ssl#q=check+my+ip

This is for WINDOWS only at this moment, I will add linux guide soon.

Still, It's not better than proxys

JageX has no way of seeing your IP and traffic data bro. Proxy sucks compared to VPN. I suggest reading up a bit on it if you're unaware of that :)

If the government subpoenaed your VPN provider, they will turn over anything asked for. Hence you're not truly protected. But what you said about your ISP not being able to see what you're doing is correct.

I have always used a VPN for such things, but remember unless your VPN is inherently anonymous then you need to configure the client to route all of your computer, including web traffic, through the VPN server.

I use OpenVPN for example, so if using that you would need to input this into its configuration.

push "redirect-gateway def1"

Without routing all of your traffic through the VPN it will not change your ip. VPNs main purpose is just secure connection.

@paradox. There are providers that will not hand over info to the gov. Look into swiss servers. Some US ones will take every case to court as well before handing over information.I don't think anyone needs to worry about this for botting though haha.

VPNs are much better for anonymity than proxies, but you would only be able to spoof one IP per computer, without lots of extra setup, so it wouldn't be as useful for non solo botters.

If anyone wants more info I know of a few articles that explain how to set these things up in an easily understood way.

      Intro/Download
      This is a free application which provides a graphical user interface to launch clients automatically using TRiBot's CLI
       
      Download: https://github.com/Naton1/Graphical-Client-Starter/releases (download links are under Assets)
      Source: https://github.com/Naton1/Graphical-Client-Starter/
       
      Loader/Updater: https://github.com/Naton1/Graphical-Client-Starter-Loader/releases
       

       
      Features:
      The best way to learn about all the features this free & open source software has is to test it out yourself!
       
      Instructions:
      Setup Application:
      Install TRiBot (if it isn't already installed).
      Download/Install the graphical client starter - you have two choices, use the windows installer (the .exe) (recommended for ease of use), or launch the .jar file. If you are not on windows you must use the jar. The jar file will require java 11+. A quick google of 'download java 11' should give you what you need.
      Configure the path to the location TRiBot was installed in the graphical client starter. This setting can be found at at Settings -> TRiBot Path in the graphical client starter. This must point to a directory named TRiBot. The Graphical Client Starter will try to find this folder automatically on start so it may already be set.
      Starting Clients:
      Click the "Add New Account" button to add new rows to the accounts table.
      Fill out the accounts to launch - Login Name and Script are required. The rest are optional. You can configure more table columns at Settings -> Account Columns.
      Click 'Launch Selected Accounts' to launch your TRiBot clients.
       
      Common Issues:
      If you are having trouble launching clients (ex. none appear), you can select Preferences -> Debug Mode for a bit more info on the TRiBot launch in the console.
      On Windows, you may have to launch the app as an administrator in order to launch a tribot client. (This will happen if you installed tribot to your program files, which is protected)
      You can easily solve this by downloading the windows installer and using that. You can right click an executable file and select "Run as Administrator".
       
      Proxies:
      There are a few ways you can configure proxies. The application will read your proxies from your tribot folder so you can just add them to tribot and they will appear when you open this application. You can also use the built-in proxy manager. Lastly, you can configure the proxy ip/port/user/pass directly in the accounts table by enabling the columns (at settings -> account columns).
       
      Application Arguments (optional, to launch the app programatically):
      -launchprofile profileName
      Automatically launch a specified profile
      -onlylaunch
      Doesn't display a GUI if the launchprofile arg is specified

      Ex. java -jar GraphicalClientStarter.jar -launchprofile last -onlylaunch
       
      World Selection:
      Use 0 or -2 for random members world
      Use -1 for random f2p world
      Leaving blank defaults to whatever TRiBot does
       
      Looking Glass:
      Go to Preferences -> Looking Glass and enable the option, and provide a path to the LG client you want to use. This will use the TRiBot CLI's built in looking glass support.
       
      Importing from text file:

      This feature allows you to specify the format your files are in.
      This may look confusing, but I promise you it's very simple. Copy and paste a line from your account file, and replace each value that you want to input with the corresponding symbol. 
      It assumes each line follows the same format in your file.
      For example, the following line
      ${username}:${password}:${world}
      Would capture the following text
      naton:mypassword:15
      And create an account with the username naton, password mypassword, and world 15
       
      Tips:
      Try Preferences -> Selection Mode ->  Cell Selection Mode. This will make the table selection similar to how Excel/Google Sheets work. You can do cool things which save time like the following (this uses copy pasting):
      https://i.imgur.com/dEPWNvT.mp4
      You can right-click the column headers to bulk configure values for the selected rows (including the selection column header itself)
      Launch Inactive Accounts (under Settings) can make sure you don't double-launch any clients (launches all selected accounts where there isn't a corresponding active client with the same username)
      Take the time to become familiar with the settings and features of this application. You will thank yourself later when you save yourself a lot of time.
       
      Please notify me of any issues.

      Hello guys, I am taking some free script requests to help me practice writing scripts!

      Looking to make scripts that currently do not exist in the repository. 

      I do plan on posting the source code, and any feedback would be appreciated.
      I will mostly be prioritizing the scripts that more people will use.
       
      Things that will be helpful for me:
      1.  Links that give information related to the requirements of running the script.
      2. Video footage of the activities you expect the script to do.
       
       
      Current: https://repo.tribot.org/script/id/3692-winton-s-aio/
      Winton's AIO F2P Script
      Making a one click AIO f2p script that will get 100+ total levels, 10+ quest points, money methods in a randomized order.
      It will mule once it reaches the required f2p trade restrictions to a mule, which will be running a separate muling script.
      The muling is soon to be added.
       
       
      Planned scripts to make: 
      - God capes collector
      - Frog Killer
      - Buying Amylase crystal boxes & opens them
      - Book of Darkness collector & filler

      I'm having difficulties connecting my bots through my proxies.  I've confirmed that the proxies themselves are working by connecting directly through them in my LAN settings on windows, and then visiting WhatsMyIP.  Using the LAN settings method I'm also able to load TRiBot and load a client.  When I try loading Tribot normally without proxies, it loads,and launching clients without proxies works.  If I try launching tribot OR a client with the same proxies I had confirmed working, I get a timeout in the former case and a perpetual "Loading client params" in the latter.
      Has anybody else experienced anything similar and is there something obvious I'm overlooking? Thank you for your input

      1. Description:
      Optimus AIO Combat & Magic is a script engineered to safely train up your Combat, Magic and Slayer skills using nearly every training method available in the game.

      Using ABC2 technology and thousands of hours of real human playing data, the script now out-performs most human players, while also avoiding bot-detection and staying under the radar from Jagex.
      2. Combat Overview:
      2.1 What Can the Script Kill?:
      The script is capable of killing every monster in the game, below are some noteworthy opponents: 
      Dragons - Including Green, Blue, Red, Black, Brutal, Adamant& Rune dragons - Amazing for goldfarming or training up your account.  Slayer monsters - Dark Beasts, Cave Krakens, Abyssal Demons, Drakes, Spiritual Mages/Warriors, Wyverns, Nechryaels, Gargoyles, Dust Devils & everything below. It will automatically use the required slayer items for finishing.  Crabs - The script can kill ALL types of crabs: Rock, Sand, Swamp and Ammonite crabs! are all supported. The script will reset the aggressiveness when they stop waking up.  Experiments - Insane XP for pures. Yaks - Insane XP for mains. Chaos druids - Good goldfarming for medium level accounts. All wilderness monsters - Good for farming emblems & wildy slayer.  Dagannoths - Insane XP, I recommend bringing a cannon for maximum gains.  Nightmare Zone Bosses - The script can kill all bosses inside NMZ and drink all the potions. It will end once the dream is complete.  Stronghold of Security and other dungeons - The script supports all of these locations.  Plus 1000's of other monsters - Literally anything you can think of, some people even use it for KBD.  2.2 Core Combat:
      Below are some of the core features that make the script so powerful. Using the features mentioned below the script can perform just as good as any player. 
      Custom fight areas - You can specify exactly where in the game you want the script to fight. Either with a polygon or a circle. Below is an example of a polygon fight area. Dwarf multicannon - The script will place, reload, pickup and stop your cannon decaying. Prayer - The script can use all prayers, including quick prayer, and even recharge your prayer at nearby altars.  Potions - Including Divine, Extended, Super, Regular, Energy, Stamina & NMZ potions.  Special Attacks - Supports every special attack weapon in the game, including weapon switching.  Guthans - The script can switch to Guthan's to heal, then switch back to your primary gear once hp is recovered.  Resetting Aggressiveness - The script can detect when monsters stop being aggressive towards you, and run away to reset the aggro.  Food - It can eat every type of food in the game. Even multiple types of food, simply seperate their names with a comma E.G Lobster, Swordfish. Bones to peaches - The script efficiently uses Bones to peach tablets if you've got them in your inventory.  Safe spotting - Safely train combat from a distance without taking any damage.  Uses slayer items to finish kills - Bags of salt, ice coolers, rock hammer etc. Detects if you've unlocked the slayer ability to auto-kill.  Bone burrying - Train up your prayer! 2.3 Looting:
      Looting by item name or ID - Simple to setup Looting by item price - E.G Loot all items over 500gp - Fetches prices from the Runescape grand exchange. Telekinetic grab support - For those hard to reach places.  High alching - Turn your loot into gold while you train! Pickup and re-equip ammo - Supports all ammo types. Ironman looting - The script will automatically detect if you're an Ironman, and loot accordingly.  Looting bag & Herb sack  - The script will automatically use them if you're carrying one. Accurate profit calculations  - Track your gains on screen or with your dynamic signature.  2.4 Banking:
      Supports every bank in the game - Can use every bank chest / booth / banker in RS. Fully customisable inventory setups. Tip 1: When withdrawing potions or charged jewellery, you can type (*) Instead of the dose number and it will withdraw whatever dose is highest in the bank. 
      For example Ring of duelling(*).  Tip 2: You can also type 0 as the quantity, and it will withdraw-all of the item instead of a specific quantity. 
      For example these settings would make it withdraw all of your cannonballs, then fill your inventory with lobsters.

      Supports all Teleports - The script can use all teleport methods including Spells, Tabs, Jewelery & Scrolls + more. Will bank for multiple conditions: 
      - Hp is below a set %.
      - Inventory is full.
      - Out of food.
      - Out of runes.
      - Out of ammo.
      - Out of all potions.
      - Out of prayer potions.
      - Out of antifire potions.
      - Out of cannonballs.
      - Before a break starts.
      - When your slayer task is complete. Heals to full HP at the bank - To save food during your trip, it'll heal up in the bank.  Logs out when you're out of supplies. 2.5 Progressive training: 
      The script can do the following when you level up, or after x amount of time:
      Upgrade equipment - E.g upgrade to Rune scimitar when you reach 40 attack. Change attack styles - E.g switch to Strength training after you reach 40 attack Change training method / location - The script can completely switch training methods, e.g Rock crabs to 60 strength, then go train magic to 70 alching, then switch back to Chaos druids after an hour. All without stopping the script.  2.6 Worldhopping: 
      The script uses both the ingame worldhopper and login screen worldhopper to find the ideal training spot. Note: All of these settings are optional. 
      Supports F2P, Members & DMM worlds  - It will automatically detect which you're in, and select worlds accordingly.  Worldhop when x players in your area - The script can count how many players are around and worldhop if it gets too busy.  Worldhop when there's a cannon in your spot - To avoid reduced XP / GP rates. Worldhop when there's a Jagex Moderator nearby - A safety precaution.  Worldhop when the break handler activated - So someone doesn't see you training for prolong periods of time. Worldhop when someone talks in your area. 3. Magic Overview:
      The script can train with pretty much every training method available, from Air strike to Ice barrage, it's all supported. 
      (The script can also loot, use cannon etc while using non-combat methods).

      3.1 Regular Spellbook
      The script can use the following regular spellbook spells, both in combat & out of combat.
      Splashing Strike spells Bolt spells Blast spells Surge spells Enchant jewelry spells Superheat items Enchant crossbow bolt spells Curse spells Alchemy spells Teleport spells 3.2 Ancient Spellbook

      Humidify Superglass Make Tan Leather Plank Make Spin Flax String Jewelry  3.4 Combo Alching

      Combat / Alch - E.G Fire surge & Alch at the same time Curse / Alch - From curse up to stun it's all supported. Earn up to 180K XP/Hour Teleport / Alch - Very fast XP.  4. Repository Information:

      Hi I got a proxy server from Virmach. I cannot seem to get Tribot to connect to it. I have gotten a 3rd party internet browser called Maxthus to get it to work so I don't think that its the server that's not working. Yes I have VIP-E as well. Please help thanks!

      So I've been playing OSRS casually for a couple years now and only tried botting a handful of times, mostly out of curiosity. I'm looking to get back into botting more seriously (as in enough to make a real profit from it). I know some of the basic measures to take for safe botting and whatnot, but I have some general questions.
      Can I expect a profit from only botting 2-3 accounts for around 12 hours a day? I'm running a not-so-speedy computer that probably can't handle much more than that. How many accounts should I trade my gold through to avoid bans? And how often should I dump the gold off of a botted account? I know I should use proxies if I'm doing multiple accounts, but it seems like a VPS isn't necessary right now. I'm new to both so any suggestions are welcome. Should I start with F2P bots? I have about 40m on my main that I could spend on bonds. I have no experience coding or writing scripts. Is it worth learning right now or am I okay to just download/buy other people's scripts? Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask these questions or if they're too general. I'm a little overwhelmed with all the technical stuff involved in botting. Seems like most guides are kind of dated too.

    • TRiBot 12 Release Candidate

      The TRiBot team has been hard at work creating the last major version of TRiBot before the TRiBot X release. We've noticed many problems with TRiBot 11 with a lot of users preferring TRiBot 10 over 11. We've heard you, so we took TRiBot 10, added the new features introduced with 11, introduced some other new things, and created TRiBot 12. So without further adieu, here's TRiBot 12.

    • Gradle is a build tool used to accelerate developer productivity.

      We recently setup a Maven repository (TRiBot Central) to make it easier for scripters to create scripts. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-central/-/packages

      Furthermore, we've released a simple Gradle project to make it easy to run TRiBot and develop scripts for it. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-gradle-launcher

      The goals of TRiBot Central are to:

      Deliver updates to TRiBot faster


      Better organize TRiBot's dependencies (AKA dependancies)


      Make it easier to develop scripts for TRiBot


      Make it easier to use and run TRiBot


      Note: TRiBot won't be able to run scripts from within this project until TRiBot's next release.

    • Hi everyone,

      I'd like to thank everyone for their patience in this transition period. Since last week, we've worked out the remaining bugs with this integration.

      Some users have still been having issues with connecting their forums account to their Auth0 account. To resolve this, we've imported all forums accounts into Auth0.

      Unfortunately, the accounts which were imported today were using an unsupported password hashing algorithm. Hence, random passwords were set during the import.

      What does this mean for me?

      If you've previously linked your forums account to your Auth0 account, you don't have to do anything. Nothing changes for you.


      If you haven't logged in via our new login yet,

      Try logging in with your forums email address and the last password you used


      If you are unable to login, please use the "Forgot password" tool on the login page:
      Follow the instructions to reset your password

    • Hello everyone,

      Last week we tried to roll out Auth0 Login, but we lost that battle. Now it's time to win the war!

      Important changes

      When logging into the client, you'll now have to enter your Auth0 account credentials instead of your forums credentials

      Note: 2FA is still handled through your forums account (for the time being)



      Changes for existing users

      You'll have to link your Auth0 account to your forums account here: https://tribot.org/forums/settings/login/?service=11


      Auth0 accounts have been created for most existing users. Please use your forums email address and password to login.



      Important notes

      Make sure to verify your email address upon creating a new Auth0 account


      When we mention your Auth0 account, we mean your account used for auth.tribot.org as displayed below

    • To better support the upcoming changes (TRiBot X, new repository), we're switching our login handler to Auth0. Instead of logging in with the standard form, you'll now be required to login through our Auth0 application.

      All existing accounts which have been used within approximately the past year have been imported into Auth0 using the same email and password combination which has been stored on the forums.

      What does this mean for users?

      Your account credentials are now even more securely stored


      You'll be able to login via Facebook, Google, and others in the future


      Is there anything users have to do differently now?

      Existing users: You'll have to login with the standard login, open your Account Settings, then link your Auth0 account


      New users: You'll be redirected to our Auth0 app (auth.tribot.org) where you'll be able to create an account


      Why was this change made?

      The new apps we are creating (such as the new repository) aren't able to use the forums to handle user logins


      To centralize all user accounts in one area


      To ensure that the client login doesn't go down when the forums are having problems


      To speed up our development


      Other considerations

      There's no documentation or official support for using Invision Community combined with Auth0, so there are still a few kinks we're working out


      We're in the works of creating an account management panel specifically for Auth0 accounts (ETA August)


      It's not possible to change email addresses for the time being (this will be resolved this August)


      Changing passwords is a weird process for the time being. To change your password, you'll have to use the "Don't remember your password" tool on the Auth0 login page
