    Hi guys, I just saw a website while I was surfing the other day, here's the link: hxxp://www.ip2location.com/

    I was surfing using a foreign proxy but this site showed me the proxy I'm using together with my real IP address, ISP, ISP location, etc...

    If this is real, it's a good thing I'm not doing unsolicited mail anymore...

    Just posted to let people know that sites like this existed, if I'm the only one who didn't know this, please disregard this thread:D

    For your purposes: transparent proxies and web proxies don't provide anonymity, they only make your connection slower :)

    they can track your IP using a java applet, because JAVA connects direct without poxy. I heared that flash can do this too, so you can disable java, or use VPN....

    Yeah flash can do raw sockets so if they REALLY want to know they can get it. I'd say these things are rare though and I'd hope most of the bots around are using raw http requests and not some webbrowser control.
