Setting up a proxy server in Origin

Origin is a service for buying games and DLCs from Electronic Arts. It is used by a large number of gamers around the world, but sometimes Origin products are not available in many countries. The system tracks your location by IP address, therefore, to purchase the game, you need to change it. You can do this through a proxy: you will receive a new address that will be tracked when you enter Origin.
