    Hi blackhaters,
    I need method to check proxy type - socks 4/5 or http or https.
    I searched it in G but no success...
    I can check response header parameters but i don't know differences between socks and http headers (if they exist).
    I tried to use proxy judges but they don't provide this information.

    I need method or code snippet or just advice.

    Thanks!

    There's a program called Proxyfire that's free. You can search in Google for easily enough. It will seperate between socks and http/s for you though.

    What tool/language are you using to mine the proxies? How would you like to program it?

    I use java. It's fast, powerful and platform-independent.

    You can do this programmatically.
