What is the "Private Network Master" extension and how does it work?
This extension relies on two free proxy server services to find you a reliable proxy server. When a proxy server is found based on the configuration user requested, the extension uses dyndns.org to check the external IP address and displays the result in the popup. If your browser is connected to the internet, the toolbar icon changes to the colorful format. If not, the extension resets your network to connect directly to bypass all the system level proxy configurations. Then requests a new proxy server and then validates the newly set proxy server. This operation continues until a proxy server is found or maximum retries reach.

How can I find my external IP address when I am connected to a remote server?
In the popup, under the log section, your exit IP address is printed (the IP address that is seen by web servers). You can also use the two online services the extension provides at the bottom of the popup area. You can check the external IP address or whether there is a DNS leakage or not.
What is the difference between HTTP and SOCKS servers?
HTTP server cannot tunnel your DNS traffic, so your actual IP address can be revealed. Use the "DNS Tool" in the popup to make sure your DNS is not leaking. If anonymity is important for you it is recommended to use SOCKS5 servers.
When I am using a transparent service, is it possible to find my actual location?
