    Hello,

    I seem to be getting an error when using these proxies in scrapebox.

    I used them once before and they worked fine.

    The error says 407 required authentication error

    Anyone know what this may be?

    Thanks.

    I actually found that site myself, and yes all the details are correct, i literally used them about 2 hours before with no problem at all.

    I can't figure out why they have the error

    and if you try them in your browser, do you get the same error message, or...?

    because if it's the same error and you're sure that you've entered the correct login details, then it can be some kind of problem with the private proxies and you should contact your proxy provider

    407 errors in the HTTP cycle

    Any client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) goes through the following cycle:

    * Obtain an IP address from the IP name of the site (the site URL without the leading 'http://'). This lookup (conversion of IP name to IP address) is provided by domain name servers (DNSs).
    * Open an IP socket connection to that IP address.
    * Write an HTTP data stream through that socket.
    * Receive an HTTP data stream back from the Web server in response. This data stream contains status codes whose values are determined by the HTTP protocol. Parse this data stream for status codes and other useful information.

    This error occurs in the final step above when the client receives an HTTP status code that it recognises as '407'.

    put simple

    The Web server (running the Web site) thinks that the HTTP data stream sent from the client (e.g. your Web browser or our CheckUpDown robot) was correct, but access to the URL resource requires the prior use of a proxy server that needs some authentication which has not been provided. This typically means you must log in (enter user ID and password) with the proxy server first.
