    Some have asked on this forum what do blackhatter?s use proxies for? Simple, to rotate there IP address as often as possible when using certain software and going to certain sites. Using software to auto post, blog comment, refer spam, social bookmarking, etc. you will want to use multiple proxies so your information looks like it is coming from several sources. You will be able to find more in depth information regarding proxies and how they work by simply searching Google. Hell there could be a post here as well, I have not fully searched for one.

    Http Proxies ? Used when visiting websites, common ports are 80,8080,8000, 3128. You will want to use anonymous proxies to help ensure your IP address is not being forwarded through the proxy you are trying to use.

    Socks 4/5 Proxies ? Proxies that support Http and other connection types, common port used is 1080. Examples would be a messenger program or IRC. Socks 4 is the older of the two and does not support user authentication or UDP (I think UDP, can?t remember). Socks 5 supports everything and is the new version as you could probably tell.

    *You will find proxy lists that do not use port 1080, they use off the wall port numbers and these are still socks proxies. They however are part of a botnet (google search if you do not know) and are commonly used to send bulk email or attack other networks. They are computers infected with a virus that allows the botnet controller full reign of the use of there internet. I know some of you hate the idea, but you have to admit whoever first thought of this idea and put it all together is a fucking genius. *

    Co*Deen Proxies ? You will want to stay away from these at all costs. You might have tested a list and came up with a shitload of anonymous proxies, however if they are Co*Deen then they are junk. Reason being is that entire network logs everything that goes through it. It was setup by Princeton and they have A LOT of servers that use the system. So even though it comes up as being anonymous, by all means delete them.

    I use Charon to check my proxies and elite proxy switcher in conjunction with firefox since it has an addon that allows me to change proxies with the click of a button and they have a free version as well. If you want to use a piece of software that does not have proxy support, do a search for sockscap and there is your solution. That will make any program go through a socks proxy before it connects to the internet.

    Other popular programs include:

    Access Diver ? Has a shitload of tools built in.
    Proxy Hunter
    Proxy Checker

    Some ISP?s will frown upon proxy scanning, so using an IP scanner to scan entire blocks looking for proxies might get your account suspended for port scanning. Please keep this in mind if you choose to scan for your own proxies. Good luck and I hope for some of you reading you learned something new today.

    Nice info for the people that don't know much about proxies.

    Do you scan for your own proxies or get them from somewhere (free/pay) ?
    Need me some anonymous http proxies :)

    JohnDoe I would suggest google.. I remember going to a security forums that was listed on google that gave Co*Deen's IP's and ranges and some tools on how to remove, can't find it at the moment.

    Charon will actually remove most of the CoDeen proxies for you, and yes I agree Access Diver is not the greatest on checking your proxy lists.

    Its ok thats what I have been using :) but also dug this up a few seconds ago

    http://www.ipmaster.org/ip2cc.html has a filter list and also found

    Elite Proxy Switcher has a built in list but i have been also just dumping proxys with ports 3128 , 3127 and 3124 as this seems to be the default port

    I seem to be having a problem with proxyfirewall, at least I think. Id use charon, and id wind up getting like 23 socks proxies, and 300 others. I then check the list in proxyfirewall and ill get maybe 1 good proxy. Is that bs or is that right?


    ps also what is a "green socks' i see them at proxy forums but I cant find out what they mean on google.

    I am not sure, you can always take a few non anonymous proxies and hit your you tube page. See if the view count increases at all for you, but I would always try and use anonymous proxies just to be on the safe side.

    Proxyfirewall is very stringent, and probably only allowing through the Socks5-specific proxies in the check. So all the Socks4 are getting the boot.

    Green means "Working", as many proxy checkers use a red/green working/dead colour code.

    And no, youtube views work by IP, so if you're not changing the IP you're just hammering it with the same one so you won't get more views than you would not using a proxy at all.

    Hypothetically. If I needed to create multiple accounts let say in Yahoo Answers so I can ask and answer my own questions without getting caught, what would you recommend. I heard of Tor and some of the other products listed here, are they enough? I am tech dumb. Please explain it as if I was retarded. Thanks....

    Just use anon proxies. I use elite proxy switcher with the firefox addon, I am sure there are other tools that do the same thing for easy proxy rotation. Use a proxy, sign into yahoo with whatever account you create and post your question. Log out, grab another proxy, use another account and answer it. The only thing I could see wrong with this is the age of the accounts, since they are all brand new it could set off a flag for yahoo to pick up on.

    What I usually do is just use multiple firefox profiles
    Code:
    http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/internet/firefox/use-multiple-firefox-profiles-at-the-same-time/
    with a particular proxy attached to each for each identity. That way every time you open one, you know exactly which name/user/email/etcetera you're getting and which IP it's on.

    As always, Socks'll do the job. --> http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/6162-socksification-dummies.html

    Thank you. Is the free Elite Proxy switcher enough? I don't understand the benefits of the premium. Also, do you purchase the proxies form EPS? Thanks

    For simply rotating the proxies, yes the free edition is all you will need. With the paid version, the features also include:

    Country Detection
    SSL/Https Test
    Gateway Test
    Dangerous IP Test
    CoDeen Test

    The free version of course does none of these. I use charon to check my proxies so it takes care of all of the above for me.

    Hey All,
    I have not used proxies and I am now trying to use Easy Ad Poster Deluxe. There is a place to enter proxys but I don't know where to go to find the best proxies for this software...any suggestions on how to simplify this task?

    Thanks

    ... I know that the Hid*eMy*IP program integrates with Easy Ad P*oster. It's not free, but I use it with other programs and it works well.

    I used the elite proxy switcher and the firefox addon, but it says that the addon is not compatable with firefox 3? Anyone else have this problem? TIA

    A lot of the old add-ons are still in dev stage for Firefox 3. That's why I switched back to Firefox 2 until things get caught up.
