    Hi,

    SB alive checker returns false results.

    For example test with this domain : www.bbox.fr
    It says not alive (it is redirected and I added 301 and 302 header codes in the setup to consider them as alive as long as 200 code)

    Thanks for your help

    I checked and it works fine for me, shows Alive. Try shutting down the addon and unchecking the use proxies box, and then restart the addon and run it, does it still show dead?

    Those urls are redirecting like mad. A url should not ideally redirect that many times, there is a max limit to the number of redirects the alive checker will follow. Else it could get stuck in loops and on some urls it would never end.

    Even my browser went thru a ton of redirects before it got to a page. So this is just how the alive checker works. It may miss a url here and there that really is setup poorly.

    Is it better to not use proxies, along with small number of threads?

    Possibly. I mean if you have a nice mix of domains and your using the alive checker then even with a decent bit of threads its fine and probably more accurate. Just randomize your list before you load it.
