    I was hoping someone here could answer a proxy question for me.

    Why is it when I use an IP:port Proxy from HMA on Cloakfish proxy check it shows my real IP adresss as being leaked along with the proxy IP address, while on WhatIsMyIPAddress it only shows the proxy IP address without any mention of my real IP address?

    Every proxy I plug in always shows my real IP address as being leaked when I check it on Cloakfish, but on WhatIsMyIPAddress it works like it should?

    I was only using High and High +KA proxies from HMA.

    Thanks for any help...

    If it's showing your real IP, there's a lot of things that could be going on.
    I recommend you get commodo free firewall and make the settings high. Eliminate all things that are leaking data packets, there will be a 100 things. Get rid of anything that is not absolutely necessary.
    If you have flash installed which I'm sure you do that will leak as well.
    Better off using a VPN or VPS.
    Also use a standalone browser for your proxy, install iron or opera,.
    With Iron you can use a command line switch to have it always setup to use a proxy

    I would say the proxy is not a true anonymous proxy server or they use cookies to identify you.
