The Fire Swamp

After Dark provides a proxy called The Fire Swamp using MoneroOcean to help you get started and as a fallback when custom proxies fail to connect.

The proxy servers are located at fs* and will be used by default until you Create Your Own Proxy or fall more than two major versions behind.

To maximize your rewards while using the Fire Swamp proxy you must try to keep your After Dark version up-to-date as illustrated here:
