Aion Setup Methods
There are a few ways to connect Aion to Smoothping. We will show you all the ways that we know. If you know another way, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
ProxyCap with PuTTY
ProxyCap and PuTTY are very easy to setup. First, download our preconfigured setup zip folder.
Once you have downloaded and unziped the folder, open up the correct installer for your OS type. "pcap322_x86.msi" for 32 bit os's, and "pcap322_x64.msi" for 64 bit os's. Please note, we do not make ProxyCap. We only provide the service for lowering your ping. ProxyCap is a 30 day trial. You can visit http://proxycap.com/ for more information. Your subscription to Smoothping DOES NOT include ProxyCap. You will have to purchase it separately.
Once you have installed ProxyCap and restarted your computer, open the program. Click the "Ruleset" item in the tree, and click "Load". Load "smoothping.aion.prs" that came in your zip download. Once you have done that, your "Rules" in proxycap should look like the screenshot below.
We have worked with Proxy Labs, and you can get 20% off ProxyCap using the link: http://www.proxycap.com/smoothping
Open PuTTY and you will see a list of all of the Smoothping servers. Select the Server that you wish to connect to and Click Load. Note: If the Smoothping Servers list does not show for you, you may need to click the "Sessions from File" checkbox and you should then see all the Smoothping Servers.
Enter your Smoothping login and password. The very first time you connect to each Smoothping Server, PuTTY will present a security warning (picture below) asking if you are sure you wish to connect to this server. Just select YES. Now you will be connected to the server that you selected and you should see our welcome message. You can minimize PuTTY now, and it will go to the System Tray.
Now just open up Aion, and you should be connected using Smoothping!
To see your current ping in Aion, just type
Try giving a few of our servers from around the US to see what one give you the best ping.
Your ping has not changed or you are unsure if you have configured everything correctly.
There is a very easy way to test that the Smoothping service is working properly.
Firstly, connect to Smoothping via PuTTY by entering your Smoothping login and password. Next, launch, and log in to Aion Now, right click on the PuTTY Icon in your System Tray, and select EXIT. Say YES, you are sure you wish to quit PuTTY. You should now be disconnected from Aion. This confirms you have correctly set up the Smoothping Service.
