Above is what I get when I try to use a free proxy to surf the internet on Google Chrome w/ a proxy. Got IP banned from an internet forum so I'm tryna use a proxy to get back on it. Why isn't it cooperating though? Is there something I'm missing in regards to using a proxy? I simply entered the proxy ip & then entered the port but to no avail. Didn't work on firefox either. I tried a public proxy from hidemyass & also tried a proxy from the BHW proxy list section Any and all help would be appreciated.
