    I have tried 10 different WORKING proxies from hidemyass

    Im using google chrome. i go to wrench -> options -> under the bonnet -> change proxy settings -> internet properties -> Connections -> LAN settings -> Click "Use a proxy server for you LAN" -> Enter the address/Port and click ok.

    I then try to go to a website and nothing happens. Page unava or w.e.

    Why is this?

    These are shared and not all working. First check with some other program that it is alive and then use it at your browser.

    Public proxies die fast and are usually blacklisted


    1. They're usually detectable, often blacklisted, and likely to draw webmaster attention.
    2. They're often setup by criminals, hackers, and police to intercept your communications.
    3. They're rarely SSL-enabled (so passwords, financial info, and free speech are all at risk).
    4. They're often used by criminals/fraudsters, and sharing that IP may put you at legal risk.
    5. They're VERY difficult to find. If you do find one that works, beware of problem.
    So i would suggest to use a private proxy provider or setup your own proxy server
