    Hi guys.
    This forum may not be the best place for this question but I've spent a lot of time here reading so I feel most comfortable asking here.

    I've recently gotten xrumer and a similar tool but despite spending the last 5 hours searching, reading, search, reading...I can't find so much as a beginners tutorial on using these tools. Not even a hint of how to use them (in newbie language) at the software websites themselves! Which seems ridiculous to me but then again, obviously I'm clueless.

    How do you use the scrapers? I've tried everything I can think of...
    Finding websites of "free proxies" is easy enough (though how many of those will work...) but how the heck do you get the proxy scrapers to do their thing and "scrape."??
    To clarify, it is the process of scraping or otherwise getting proxy lists loaded into these tools that I'm stumped on. Soo frustrating considering I'm sure the answer is painfully simple and obvious. Which is possibly why finding any help is impossible...because it's just obvious to everyone but me? haha

    Aside from an ill-advised foray into organic chemistry and Ecstasy synthesis in my younger years I don't think I've EVER spent 5 hours looking for an answer to a single question and not found it. Heck I though it would be an easy find. Software instructions (regardless of where the software comes from or what it is for) are always easy to find. After all, you can't be the only one to have ever asked the question and so an answer is usually prominently displayed in the first couple goog results. Well, not this time I guess.

    Many thanks for any help or suggestions anyone might be able to give.
    Regards,
    Curtis

    heres a free tool for scraping , its basic but it will get you started
    first have a list of links. the links must be viewable without
    having to login, meaning it will only pull proxies from links of forums
    with open public access.

    download link
    proxygrabber

    to use. open tool ,
    click file tab > and import icon
    point to your list of urls and load them
    then click the green arrow that points this way >
    to start the leeching. when its done right click on
    any proxie in the right colom and click save. double
    check what u have saved it all the proxies.
    and thats how you scrape on a basic level

    Thanks. Just got on so I'll give your instructions a go. I still can't believe I couldn't find out on my own. Doh!

    Cheers!
