I bought a private proxy server which I'm successfully using in Telegram application.
Now I went to network preferences (I'm using wifi connection), selected SOCKS proxy and filled credentials. Internet connection works, however when I check my ip address on few sites I got my original ip.
Plus, I noticed, that first time I filled wrong user/password but didn't get any error.
So how can I actually check if my wifi connection uses socks proxy, and why I get original IP? Pretty sure proxy is alive (anyway if it's not I should get some kind of error?)
