Please tell me how you can get the IP address of the proxy server and display it in the monitoring. I'm trying to do it using json, but it doesn't work. https://api.ipify.org/?format=json

Hello there,

Thank you for your post.

You can try to use the HTTP XML/REST Value Sensor, just enter your URL, and as the XML node enter "ip".

Kind regards,

You can't set proxy settings in it (((

I have thought that you want to get the IP from the URL that you have mentioned above. I have tested this with the HTTP XML/REST Value and I get the IP from the URL.

Does this not work in your configuration, or do you need something else?
