    I installed proxy fire on my vps and left it running for around 24 hours searching for proxys.

    it found 300k+ which actually came down to 200+ high anonymous proxys

    it put that list into scrapebox and tested them and that took it down to 20 or so usable.

    Shouldn't it be more successful than that? I'd get more working proxy's using scrapebox's internal harvester.

    as a former retired admin of proxyfire heres a tip
    ps i was aka jammo my name is still there.
    advice - proxyfire sucks at finding proxies
    its only 2 redeeming features is testing proxies
    u already have and scanning lists or already
    made ip blocks, thats what i use it for and it
    works fine > if < you have the ip blocks

    i always called it a tool never realized its potential
    like i said its ok for testing proxies
    ok for leeching proxies from ip blocks
    but beware - proxyfire sends all your test result
    to them, meaning all positive proxie results they
    get your lists as well as you. use another proxy tester

    Personally I think that ProxyFire is an amazing tool.
    I use it to leech, sort, clean, ... proxies lists.

    PS : These days are horrible to scrape proxies (in my case)... Only 10% from usual.

    i never said proxyfire is bad im saying it could have
    been so much more. for me i find it works best for
    scanning ip ranges for scrapebox, it never lets me
    down with an average of 1k - 1.4k per list i get
    from proxyfire passing the google check
