    I was hoping someone could guide me in the right direction. I currently have a lot of really good IP ranges to scan and get about 70,000 fresh proxies a day, however the issue is that proxyfire will only scan 1 port so I'm missing out on a lot unless i stop it and change the port it scans manually. Ideally I'd like it to scan 4 different ports but it seems unable to. If anyone knows how to fix this or knows of any alternative scanners which are as fast as proxyfire then I'd really appreciate your guidance. Also I should note it must be able to do TCP scans as SYN don't seem to yield nearly the same results for me.

    as a retired proxyfire admin, proxyfire allows you to add more than 1 port
    when scanning a specific ip range just add multiple ports in the port box like this

    I gave that a go, however after it gets to 100% scanned it doesn't change to the other ports. I had a look on the proxyfire forums and it sounded like a known bug, unless there was a fix at sometime but I have the latest version and still seem to be having that error.

    well as a retired admin i have one of the first test versions ever made from 2007
    and it works as well as the new one, i will check your question by running mine
    ill reply shortly

    also be advised if your using proxyfire with tcp u have to use it with xp/sp1
    this is becaus anything above sp2 will lock out all tcp ports
    even if u used tcp patch it will only unlock 30% and thats a heavy loss

    i use an old amd single core 2.6gz pc with xp/sp1 for proxyfire only works
    like a charm

    update, i tried scannin some of my ip blocks on multiple ports it seems your correct
    it will only scan 1 port across multiple ip ranges, and to be honest i dont see that an
    issue, after all why scan the same range twice with 2 ports or more
    high percentage you will get the same ips just with a diff port

    Just saw this thread So, do you mean to say that most of the second/third port scans of the same IP ranges will return false positives or in other words just the same IP addresses. For example, if I scan 80, 8080 and 3128 using the same IP ranges, will the chances of returning the same proxys with just different ports be quite high? Is scanning 80 port of any real value? I notice that it pulls up massive possible proxies but only a few of them are real proxies. The other day, I noticed less than 100 proxies for a million possible 80 port proxies pulled up by proxyfire.
