    Hi Buddy,

    Is there any other common port like 27977 that i can scan USA ip ranges for?


    to find some 2-3 socks in 1 state.

    Those proxies were so called botnet proxies. Often very slow as well. It's just the same to me are those proxies gone or not. I used to scan for those proxies at speed of 1 million IPs a day and found usually 20-40 new every day.

    Those proxies died far too fast considering efforts used so I stopped.

    It's speculation but either anti-virus softwares finally detected that virus or the maker of virus simply changed port or blocked public access.
