    I remember in my old mailing days I would tell my proxy scanning software to search some Korean or US dynamic IP range for mailing proxies, then go to sleep. When I woke up I would have a couple to choose from.

    I need proxies to surf anonymously, but I do not want the leeched proxies that most proxy software picks up. Those proxies are too overused and go down all the time.

    The tool I would use is probably Charon. The IP ranges I would scan would probably be US dynamic ADSL ranges. Would you guys in the know say that this is a feasible method? Would I be able to find "unknown" http proxies this way?

    I would not scan randomly, there is an easy way to get IP-ranges which allow you to target your scans. I don't send bulk emails but I came across to various ranges that provide you mailing proxies.

    To find a reasonably amount of 'unknown' proxies, you need a heavier solution. I am specialized to proxy scanning. I've sent you a PM because I can offer you a solution you're looking for.

    PS. Don't waste your time by scanning dynamic IP-ranges for those proxies you need.

    Definitely first go find a list of dangerous IP ranges.

    Keep that list up-to-date.
