FireProx – AWS API Gateway Management Tool For Creating On The Fly HTTP Pass-Through Proxies For Unique IP Rotation

Being able to hide or continually rotate the source IP address when making web calls can be difficult or expensive. A number of tools have existed for some time but they were either limited with the number of IP addresses, were expensive, or required deployment of lots of VPS’s. FireProx leverages the AWS API Gateway to create pass-through proxies that rotate the source IP address with every request! Use FireProx to create a proxy URL that points to a destination server and then make web requests to the proxy URL which returns the destination server response!



  • Rotates IP address with every request
  • Configure separate regions
  • All HTTP methods supported
  • All parameters and URI’s are passed through
  • Create, delete, list, or update proxies
  • Spoof X-Forwarded-For source IP header by requesting with an X-My-X-Forwarded-For header

You can install and run with the following command:

$ git clone https://github.com/ustayready/fireprox
$ cd fireprox
~/fireprox$ virtualenv -p python3 .
~/fireprox$ source bin/activate
(fireprox) ~/fireprox$ pip install -r requirements.txt
(fireprox) ~/fireprox$ python fire.py

Note that Python 3.6 is required.
Building a Docker image: (Currently does not work on Docker for Windows, possibly due to line endings in entrypoint.sh.)

$ git clone https://github.com/ustayready/fireprox
$ cd fireprox
$ docker build -t fireprox .
$ docker run --rm -it fireprox -h
