    Hello I have many private proxies and when I tested them, I've got "Error 403 Forbidden." Then I asked to my provider and he replied this:
    "If you're using these on a third party program, make sure to check all settings and contact the developer for support. These have been verified to work in web browsers and should work in other applications as well, however, we are unable to provide support for third party programs such ScrapeBox, etc."

    Can anybody help me to fix this problem?
    Thanks!

    Heard that Squidproxies work out well with scrapebox though I use public ones for now. If your proxy provider cannot help then maybe you could try contacting scrapebox otherwise it might not be of much help.

    Yeah I don't know too. I've contacted Scrapebox's customer support, but I'm still curious so I'm asking here.. :(

    Any other opinion here?

    403 is an access denied error. Have you tried these in a browser?

    try to configure the proxy with your browser , if it works then better ask for SB support , if it is not working contact the proxy support with the screen shot and if is still like that then better find another provider .

    Hello I cannot change the proxies provider now since I've just bought them. Do you have any other idea about the problem? Changing provider is not an answer to my question I think

    There may be some way they block use of proxies in scrapebox,looks likely judging by the reply you got.
    You'll get 4 private proxies in fiverr for a month,go buy 4 and if they work it answers your question.

    If you're on a VPS, are you sure the correct port is open for outgoing TCP traffic?

    Hello cloakndagger I have another private proxies from other provider and they're all working. I get 60 private proxies from this provider, but just 10 of them are working..

    How to test this?

    My private proxies have username and passwords, and firefox doesn't have username and password's tab to be typed on.. Would it works if I don't type username and password on it?

    Thanks all!
    Is it probably because the 50 proxies haven't been authorized?

    Find the port that your proxies are on (the number after the colon). Ask your VPS admin if this port is open for outgoing TCP traffic. If it isn't, ask them to open it.

    Almost all of my proxies are from the same port (8888). So if the first 10 are working, the other proxies' port must be open too..

    when you run the firefox it will ask for user name and password . If your proxy have username and password.
