Thanks to @K900, who implemented the intermediate version of the protocol.

Quarx2k: could you test the latest version of the program in master branch. The should fix work in the Telegram X beta for Android

When you enable advertising, other servers are used for communication to pass AD_TAG. The protocol of communication with that other servers requires knowing your current external ip. One of the reason the configuration with tags doesn’t work is a problem with external ip determination. That is why I asked to check if external ip is detected properly in string tg://proxy?server=<IP_ADDR>&port=3259&secret=0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef

Also, it your server is behind NAT and NAT equipment changes the source port, it won’t work (official proxy also likely won’t work in this case).

Hi, I checked a proxy with this config and it works for me.

Do your server is behind NAT? After launch the proxy should tell the ip address tg://proxy?server=<IP_ADDR>&port=3259&secret=0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef

Does this ip address is the same as your external address?

Also, it is interesting on which platform the telegram client is running: ios/android/windows.
