    Hello everyone,

    I recently got an Amazon scrape made for me. It's a very simple PHP script. One thing I am worried about is running the script too much from my server and having that server "blocked".

    I guess what I'm trying to ask is.. what information can Amazon extract if I run a script on them from some random server. Can they see the IP address of the computer I'm using? I'm concerned about (1) my personal IP address being blocked from Amazon, and (2) the server I use being blocked by Amazon.

    Please, if anyone can give me any help and ease my fears, that would be great!

    If you are concerned about IP block, just integrate proxy feature with the tool..

    I don't believe Amazon will even see/notice you scraping.

    If anything your servers IP will be blocked since it is the one performing the action.
