    I just got access to 60 or so private proxies, and I'm just wondering how I can connect to them for my programs that don't allow private proxies? I use FORUM BOT for forum profiles, and there is no private proxy support yet. Is there a program that I can install that will connect my entire connection to the private proxies I enter?

    Also, I heard you shouldn't use private proxies for harvesting URL's on scrapebox, so what should you use? Public proxies never work for scrapebox.. they've all been banned. How do you know when to use publics and when to use privates?

    Try getting a VPN like one from HideMyAss instead of using individual proxies. That makes ur whole connection private, no matter what program u use

    I had the HMA VPN but I just got a VPS that came with 60 private proxies and it would be a shame not to use them.

    I was hoping to find a program like HMA VPN that will let you input your own private proxies and it will secure your connection using them instead of their VPN network. Any ideas?

    Thanks, proxy firewall looks like it will get the job done. What proxies should I use when harvesting URL's on SB? Are you supposed to use free ones? Or is it okay to use my privates?

    I use my private proxies for harvesting(I use Scrapebox only for harvesting), but most of people here will say that you should use shared proxies for harvesting and private for commenting.

    2-3 hours a day. There is no 100% guarantee that the proxies won't get banned, but if you harvest a lot you need more proxies. I'm harvesting with 10 and they just work fine for me.

    Finding good number public proxies is hard and need 30min-60min each day. The worst part is that sometimes in the end of the proxy checking you can get only 20-30 good proxies with which your harvesting is a nightmare.

    We're using a set of proxies each month (I mean each month new shared proxy set) and never had an issue with G banning them (or it wasn't as serious that we'd have noticed). And we're crawling/scraping the web all day long... :)
