    Hey,

    I'm using Charon to test proxies I scrape. I load in the proxies, remove the dodgy, dupes, etc. and then when I go to check for Anon. Proxies, it starts running and then eventually locks up.

    Am I running too many threads or something? I started at 200 and dropped to 20, same problem. I looked at my processes mem and it was only using about 24mb worth.

    Any advice would be great.

    what is your OS ?
    i used to run it on xp before i got scrapebox.
    didn't have a problem at 100 threads .. i tried it on win 7 and it doesn't like it.
    no clue why, maybe it was just me or something.

    There is no install. It is a self-loading app.

    I used to use that way back in the day. But its old now and much better ways to test them. SB is excellent for this by the way. I remember Charon taking forever to check 6k at a time running 100 threads on a dedicated server.

    but testing a list of proxies in scrape box has nothing
    to do with a charon test.
    scrape box only tests for proxies that pass its test for
    using them in scrapebox.
    charon tests for working live proxies . 2 different tests
    and charon is the most reliable tester around if
    u update your filters / judges / and have the speed
    to run it .
