    ok first i wanna thank the owner of scrape box for
    the copy i was given tonight .. hopefully when she
    comes back online we can resolve the link problem.

    second i wana thank gregstereo for spennding 6hrs
    in voice chat with me on yahoo.. i may not use tools
    but the scrape box tester is allowing me now to post
    scrape box proxies in my forum for vip users as of now.

    first thing..scrape box testing is rather slow
    to increase this change these options
    open scrapebox ini file edit the following
    for faster leeching and testing

    Threads=300
    ProxyHarvester=200

    this will increase the speed it leeches
    and will test proxies alot faster..

    time out default is 30 seconds
    imagine testing say 10k proxies
    where 7k are timed out - that means
    7000 proxies each being re-tested for 30
    seconds each. advise set it lower alot lower

    TimeOut= use between 3-5. to lessen test time.

    this next part only effects using socks proxies only
    now if u use the internal leech option u will see if u
    saved any proxies back to the main window after testing
    all the socks back in the main windows list will look like this

    S76.124.88.161:6715
    S68.46.19.168:6830
    S216.196.224.23:8091
    S68.42.227.230:8176
    S67.81.179.106:8719
    S67.165.59.30:8837

    when u import your leeched and tested proxies back to
    the main window all socks will have a capital S at the start
    of each port number.

    why is this important - because if you take a list of socks say
    from a post u might find and just load them into your main programe
    window to run without testing they will look like this and will not work

    76.124.88.161:6715
    68.46.19.168:6830
    216.196.224.23:8091
    68.42.227.230:8176
    67.81.179.106:8719
    67.165.59.30:8837

    the point being leeched lists checked and tested and sent back to
    the main window carry the capital S... a socks list loaded into the
    main programme window without testing and try to use, all socks
    will fail..

    as of now proxiecentral now has a new scrape box category
    for all VIP members.. hope these tips help...

    sample of my own proxies i test in scrape box tonight..

    [​IMG]

    all the lists posted in my forum are mixed lists of
    socks and anon proxies, so to get the socks in
    the list to work u must re-test the whole list then
    send it back to main windows or the socks will fail
    if you try loading them directly into the main window
    then only the anon proxies will work as the capital S
    will be gone.

    I wasnt aware that SB had a config file :eek:

    Do you mean the scrapebox.ini file?

    I thought all the settings were available from the gui. (Well, the most important)

    Which file (by name) are you refering to?

    If you have the internet pipeline to run full throttle, these tweaks are well worth it. The proxy tester screams after tweaking it.

    Depends.

    If you run proxies thru the ScrapeBox Proxy Tester, then transfer the tested proxies to the main window, SB pre-pends the "S" to any proxies that it detects are SOCKS proxies. And they work.

    If you just throw SOCKS proxies into the main SB window in the format:
    IP:port
    without an "S" at the start, SOCKS proxies won't work in SB.

    And if you have proxies you know to be SOCKS proxies, you can add the "S" manually in the ScrapeBox "Select Engines & Proxies" box in the main window.

    Capiche?

    socks that are tested from the internal leecher
    then sent back to the main programme so use
    have the S at the start of each sock. it tells
    the programme there is usuable socks in the list.

    ok so here was have a few socks collected from
    the leecher i removed all anon proxies to make the
    point socks tested , dead removed

    [​IMG]

    now when the socks proxies are sent back to the
    main programme look at how the programme shows
    them listed. each sock has the letter S at the start
    of each port - this format means they will run.
    see pic below.
    [​IMG]

    if how ever u deciede to grab a list of socks
    from a post somewhere and not test them but
    just throw them in the main window to use
    you will see the capital S is gone and any attempt
    to run them will fail see pic

    [​IMG]

    put simple if u have a list of socks or a list of
    anon proxies/socks never just throw them in the
    main window to use as all socks will fail..

    send any imported liste to the proxy checker
    then after u have tested them
    send them back to the main window so
    that the programme applys ths S to the socks
    in the list.. understand? other wise your loosing
    the ability run using socks and only anon will work
    from the sent back list



    finaly which file to edit the settings for faster
    leeching and testing - the one marked in blue
    [​IMG]

    Threads=300
    ProxyHarvester=200
    TimeOut=2

    proxie leecher speed increase 225%
    proxie tester test increases by 28 seconds per proxie

    if u have no idea about editing only change thoes 3

    final test was to inport 20k mixed proxies anon
    socks thrown in the tester..20k on default settings
    would take about 2hrs.. with new text edited settings
    list loaded leached from 669 sources .
    note - while loading a list that large dont touch the
    mouse - or the programme will fail to respond and crash.

    loaded ammount = 20k
    time taken = 29mins
    working = 660
    this was without me adding my socks into the test list

    also im seeing a lot of people saying my tweaks dont work
    there getting no working proxies..well read and learn.. heres why..

    as a proxy supplier of 5 yrs the answer is simple as to why
    why when u leech is the proxie count low..
    lets say scrape box has sold 500 coppies [ example ]
    thats 500 people all leeching the same proxies from the
    same 5 leech links. no offence what do u expect.
    all the links being leeches are being leeched from forums
    that require no login hence why the programme can leech
    them.. if the users in those 5 forums don't post many
    proxies - when you people go to leech your proxie count
    will be low - but that should be obvious for leeching
    free proxies
    this next comment is not a spam its a point , in my forum
    there are no proxies posted in the free members area for
    scrape box..why?.. becuse every noobie would login - log out
    byby.. and the proxies get hammered by 1000 account holders
    with 0 post... all my proxies for s-box are kept in the vip part
    of my forum for 1 good reason.. less people using them
    the longer they last [ less shared ]
    so does that asnwere why the leech in s-box will have bad days?
    people no post - u get no proxies to leech.

    am i qualified to say this? i think so
    i no how leeching tools work tools such as
    fpl - and proxy fire of whom i no the makers
    quite well use the same effect

    if the source links dont update your only leeching
    the same proxies over and over

    so back to the start the tweaks work fine

    Threads=300
    ProxyHarvester=200
    TimeOut=2
    blame the proxies being leeched..

    if the settings were incorect jammo
    couldnt leech 20k proxies from 667
    sources and get almost 700 proxies
    working..why so many..u dont have
    these sources..less used = more alive.

    works for me and other who have tried it fine
    95% reason your proxies fail is if your using the
    internal leecher...dont... everyone who bought
    scrape is using the 5 channle scrape leecher
    hundred of people all tryint to use the same
    proxies.. figure it ... it wont work.. to many
    people use thoes in built proxies.. the remedy is
    so simple find a source of proxies people arnt
    using or posting...problem solved

    oh and the tweaks work fin just finished testing
    some

    [​IMG]

    your problem isnt the tweaks
    you need to find proxies yourself a proxie source trust
    me ive sold proxies 5 yrs - once u start loading in
    your own lists...u will smile..so i throw a bone u can
    sniff around while looking

    I still don't get better result, I have idea:

    can you make a video or can you upload scrapebox.ini on here so we can dowload and update it ?

    thanks!

    TimeOut=2 comes into play by the following rule
    the higher the time out the longer it takes to re-test
    timmed out proxies....

    because i imported proxie lists to test in the scrape
    box proxie tester , using default time out 30 would
    criple me to test say 20k proxies.. so for me by setting
    a low time out - i only get quick returns on fast proxies
    anything over 2 seconds fails...jammo no like slow
    proxies in his list..

    hmmm video i can try how can i record what i do
    i do proxies - not block buster videos

    as for slow proxies
    some people dont like working proxies in there list that
    will take 10 seconds+ to complete a task.
    i was given the tool by the kind maker on saturday.

    for the last 3 days i have spent many hrs in yahoo voice
    chat with greg trying to tweak the ini to make it faster.
    so for me with a 20 meg connection using time out of 2
    using the programmes internal leecher im still picking up
    around 2-300 good proxies.. very slow... but good...
    but thoes speed tweaks wont work for everyone...
    but for thoes it will it cuts the time u will spend testing
    proxies by along way.. i no from greg he was having trouble
    tetsing 10k proxies on default in under 45mins

    i went through the ini file tweaked it..i used my own private
    leecher and leached 60k proxies...filtered out some rubbish so
    the list was down to 40k.... that list was then imported into
    the scrape box proxy tester - the test ran aprox 29mins.
    in default that would have taken 2-4hrs.. and it returned
    680 good proxies..

    the best advice i can give is this, the 5 leech sources in s-box
    are ok for thoes who want free proxies - but remember that is a free option and
    the proxies will be slow because many other s-box users are all
    using the same 5 links as well as u.. hence the word burning them
    fast...

    this is the reason i choose to use a proxy leecher with 999 source
    locations not available in the programme....proxies imported that
    have been used alot less = better ms time - longer life -

    it just amazes me when people are saying the pre-loaded proxies
    in s-box dont always work again that answer is simple.
    the 5 leech sources all pull proxies from open source websites
    requiring no login, this means the scraper is grabbing proxies
    from 5 sites requiring no authentication login, bare that in mind
    if the people on thoes sites dont post regular proxies, when you
    people attempt to leech - you will be leeching the same old proxies.

    thats why im glad for the proxie tester in s-box because it allows me to
    import the proxies from 999 scraped sources + test private proxies
    to make up good lists for my forum users..

    so if u have a fast connection time out2 will work great and save u time
    if u have a slower connection - dont use it
    and final though - as the tool grows in popularity users will have to seek
    imported source of proxies because there will reach a point the people
    owning s-box will out strip the proxies u can leech from within it to work.
    its already reached saturation point already only so many thing hundreds
    of people can do scraping proxies from 5 internal sources.

    and conisdering the tool itself is worth 100$+ let alone the 56$ the lady
    charges it makes me laugh people wont go look for proxies..


    [​IMG]


    what i have noticed is proxies leeched internal have a
    msn time average of 1000 upto 20,000 + hence slow.

    by importing own lists of lesser used proxies ms times
    for me vary 100+ = faster response = faster posting

    on that page im retiring

    thanks mate i said it did but people
    didnt believe me .. i mastered the
    proxie part of the tool in 48hrs
    +ini file .. its not hard
