    Hi all,

    Currently I'm creating a bot that utilizes proxies to generate page views. I came across an interesting post here which someone spoke about if a single IP address can handle x connections which are all going through different proxies? In other words, should my application limit the amount of threads running to generate connections, having in mind (pretty obvious) 1 thread = 1 connection, and 20 threads = 20 simultaneous connections going through different proxies at the same time. Is there any disadvantage of this or should it all work the same if I were to limit it to 5?

    Thanks!!

    It mainly depends on the kind of proxy. If you have Elite Proxies, which do not tell the host from which IP the requests comes, it's irelevant how many you run at the same time.
    When you one the other hand run hundreds of crappy proxies on the same host, it could block your IP.

    In the normal case there is no disadvantage running many threads except the increase traffic consum. But I think it depends on the host. If the host is checking your requests and blocks proxies or connection attemtps with multiple proxies but the same request IP you have to proof this independently for each host.
