You can browse with your normal browser using your Seedbox's IP using the included http proxy.

!IMPORTANT: THIS ARTICLE IS FOR VERSION 1 SEEDBOXES. THIS FEATURE IS NOT YET AVAILABLE FOR VERSION 2 SEEDBOXES.

Common steps

* After clicking Connection Info and then the HTTP Proxy tabs http proxy connection hostname and port are also listed there.

Important: Before you use the http proxy, make sure that the "Http access" in the installable applications page, is installed. If not, click to install it. This will enable your http proxy.Then open your favourite browser, and in its connection settings, enable an http/ssl proxy with the hostname and port listed in your connection details tab. No other method of proxy (like ftp, socks etc) will work with these settings, only http and ssl.After you try to open a page, you might be requested to login to the proxy (a username/password popup will appear). Use the same login information as your seedbox (rutorrent interface, listed in the "Login Information" tab).
