    Hi all,

    I would like to know if the use only of ProxyFire will be enough?

    How can I find semi-private proxies?

    Thanks and regards,

    TheStrategist

    I know 'retired admin' certainly mean Super Admin, but from wher?

    I have just installed ProxyFire an hour (and have difficulties to find tutorial for it).

    I just want to cover myself when I go anonymously on internet (but without every times to check if my ip still valid).
    It seems to have some good tutorial in ProxyFire's forum : i will also start frome there.

    Thanks and regards

    if it is for web surfing - just pay 1/2$ for a couple of private proxies
    its probably better. public proxies arnt that great at hiding you
    but by all means try

    As a result, I do not understand in your tutorial where you ScrapeBox in goal to find valid proxies for ProxyFire : why don't you use ProxyFire only?

    scrapebox is faster at finding urls of the day for people who cant
    afford to get better proxies, it allows you buy using a foot print
    and keyword to search for urls of the last 24 hrs.

    proxyfire works best for me when port scanning ip blocks
    looking for better un tapped sources of public proxys
