XProxy box is a server that connects right behind the Modem-Router device of the internet provider. And the disadvantage following this model are:

  • The speed limit of Ethernet port on Modem-Router.
  • The limit of concurrent connections and concurrent users on Modem-Router.
  •       This limit can lead to Modem-Router freezing, which is a prevalent issue when configuring a proxy system for business purposes or requiring a proxy with numerous connections.

  • Your Modem-Router don't support a NAT feature.
  • The NAT feature of Modem-Router altered (interfere) the Protocol Data Unit and make the UDP proxy of XProxy not working.

From the problem of UDP Proxy not working when NAT via Modem-Router, XProxy development team has researched and found a way to implement transparency between proxy server and Modem.
