When you sign up you will be provided with a unique username and password that you can use when configuring your proxy service in your application:
We recommend you store the connection string in an environment variable QUOTAGUARD_URL to maintain compatibility with platforms like Heroku and CloudControl.
You can test your proxy setup using curl:
$ curl -x username:firstname.lastname@example.org:9292 http://www.google.com/
Ruby Geocoder is the leading geocoding solution for Ruby and Rails and works seamlessly with QuotaGuard. Simply add your authenticated connection string in to the geocoder initializer.
# config/initializers/geocoder.rb Geocoder.configure( ... :http_proxy => ENV["QUOTAGUARD_URL"], :timeout => 5 )
