    I'm trying to see my PPV competition for US targeted campaigns. As I'm not in the US I don't have a US IP, and I can't see my competition. Anyone know the best solution for this?

    I tried using some free proxy servers but the competition still wouldn't popup, and yes I do have the adware installed.

    Thanks!

    Try a non free proxy?

    I'm not very tech savvy person. I guess I'm looking for some reassurance that a paid proxy would actually work for my purposes, where the free ones failed. But now I'm having a problem of zero ads popping, even for targets in my country.

    What free ones have you used? I find either proxify.com or us.worldproxy.tracking202.com will work usually.

    Also have you made sure your browser will allow popups? Firefox is usually shocking for this - maybe try on different browsers.

    lotus, I've tried several, including proxify and t202. I've used the web-based ones where you just insert the URL, and I've used the servers where I have to input an IP and port into the browser. I also assume that the web-based ones wouldn't work because I'm guessing that a US IP only shows up for the targeted website, but the adware is still looking at your real IP when it pops an ad. Am I wrong on that assumption?

    Yes, I've turned off the popup blocker and I've tested it with IE and Firefox. I've found one proxy that got me a couple pops but then it just completely stopped. And I know that these should be active targets because I tried to check on mine.

    For reference, I'm trying to check on MediaTraffic competition.
