I've got php code that utilizes a random known GOOD google passed proxy to reach out and parse through google serps for keyword positioning. I've run this code on my developer's web server (which I believe is based in Taiwan if that matters) and the proxies work, and the google checkup works. Ok, so code proven out and proxies proven out. What doesn't work is if I run the code from MY webserver in my Texas colocation or even off of my laptop at home running XAMPP. I get "cURL Error (7): couldn't connect to host" errors all the time. It's not my connecttime, it's not that it's a bad proxy and my outbound ports are not blocked (especially at home!). Any ideas?
