    I'll try to keep this as short as possible. I have had ScrapeBox for a long time, and recently I was forced to wipe my hard drive and start over again, and of course I got my ScrapeBox activated again on windows 7 (The same that I had on here before). Before I wiped everything, I could find proxies no problem, however post-install I have not been able to find one working proxy using the proxy-checker, from the 2000 scraped.

    So basically, I made sure my firewall was off, and tried to change some other settings that I might have had disabled on my previous install on windows, and nothing is working. I believe I am using the "New Proxy Checker", however that's what I was using before I reformatted. Is anyone else having these issues, or is it just me? If it's just me, does anyone know how to fix this issue?

    When I hit start, it goes through, and even if some pass google, by the time they get to the TIME check, they will all fail, and before I used to get at least 40-50 working. Hopefully someone has some insight on this, so I can get back to my work :)

    Would you stop wasting your time looking for public proxies? Especially from the built-in list, it sounds like you're not even harvesting for proxies using your own custom footprints.

    Paid proxies are such a great deal. Just the 4-10x lower latency is going to save you ton of time. If you can't buy private proxy package, at least spring for a shared one.

    I am looking for the same info as I just bought ScrapeBox and I cannot get anything to work. Even my private proxies are telling me that my IP is banned.

    I dont have problem with the built in proxy finder and use them for scraping. But for posting, paid proxies are a lot better

    how many private proxies do you need to run 2 instances on same pc, 12 hours per day with big lists ?? What would be a safe amount?

    1)remove separator( | ) from each url and also PR of page

    2)copy all

    3)go to your scrapebox ,clear all current proxies

    go to manage -> harvest proxies->in 'proxy harvester' there is a button "add source" -> add all from file and harvest all.

    i think you get about 50K proxies (most of are socks )

    check for good one (ip test )

    u get prolly 1-2 k working proxies which passes IP test to

    save list and use it .

    rinse and repeat once a week ,to get fresh once

    edit1 : uncheck SB internal proxy sources ,they are totally waste of time

    enjoy

    Hi guys, I appreciate the responses for the most part. I am scraping public proxies to scrape with because I tend to use strictly private proxies to post with. I'll try what's suggested though.

    I suggest you check out Proxyfire . net, especially hxxp : // www . proxyfire .net/reg/links. php if you are after public proxies.

    Good luck

    Using the harvest proxies feature gives you total crap proxies. Out of 2000, only around 4 worked when I tried, and I tested this multiple times.

    @mohitjmehta thanks for the step by step instructions. I followed everything. I got around 57,000...so far I have no good proxies at 2,000...I will let it run for another 20 minutes before abandoning this. I thanked you here anyway.

    ohh yes i forget it,

    split list in two OR you need to give it many hours because this is just loads of proxys

    it would recommended to let it run whole night

    Here's the list without the PR and separators

    You get about 20k proxies when you remove dups but I think you may only get 1 working per 250 or so. These are well know sources and highly used
