Configuring Internet Explorer on Windows (Vista or 7) for Anonymous Surfing

To get started using the NeoTunnel tunneling proxy service to surf the web securely and anonymously on a Windows Vista or Windows 7 PC using Internet Explorer, follow these steps:

First, download the NeoTunnel installer by clicking the link below:

Download NeoTunnel Installer for Windows

Save the file to the Desktop.

Install the NeoTunnel software:

  1. Double click on the InstallNeoTunnel icon on the Desktop. Click "OK" and "Run" on the warning boxes that may appear.

  2. In the Installer window, click "Install".

  3. After the installation is complete, on the next screen, click "Close".

  4. From the Windows Start menu, select All Programs > NeoTunnel > Start NeoTunnel. You may see a warning message from Windows Firewall - click "Unblock" on this.

The NeoTunnel support software is now installed and initialized. You will need to perform this last step (Start NeoTunnel) whenever you restart your PC, so that NeoTunnel is running when you try to browse the web. If NeoTunnel is not running and you try to surf using a browser configured to use NeoTunnel, you will not be able to surf and will see an error message in the browser window.

Now configure Internet Explorer to use the proxy as follows:

  1. Select Tools -> Internet Options from the main menu.

  2. On the "Internet Options" window, click on the "Connections" tab.

  3. Click on "LAN Settings" and enable the checkbox for "Use a proxy server for your LAN".

  4. In the "Address" field, type in "127.0.0.1" (without the quotes) and in the "Port" field type in "8080" (without quotes).

  5. Enable the check-box for "Bypass proxy server for local addresses".

  6. Click "Advanced". Then, in the "Do not use proxy server for addresses beginning with:" field, type in:

    neomailbox.ch;www.neomailbox.ch

    If you would like to view some sites directly and not through the proxy, list them (separated by ';') in this field too.If you would like to view some sites directly and not through the proxy, list them (separated by commas) in the "No proxy for:" field.

  7. Click "OK" on the "Proxy Settings" window, then again on the "Local Area Network (LAN) Settings" window, and again on the "Internet Options" window.

  8. Now all your web requests from Firefox will go through our SSL secured proxy and the results will be returned to you via the SSL secured channel.

    You will be asked to supply your Neomailbox username and control panel password when you begin browsing.
