    Ive just been running a proxy checker, I dont know much about proxies but one has come back with this result:
    HTTP: Proxy is working!
    Proxy is high anonymous (elite)!

    Anyone know what this means? Obviously highly anonymous but what about elite, is this just a nickname for an anonymous proxy?

    As far as I know, an ELITE proxy is the most secure kind of it, meaning your ip can't be determined easily or not at all. In the same category (while not 'Elite') is the JAP and to some degree TOR. Most other proxies sucks. Not sure, but perhaps JAP is using SOCKS 4 or 5. If you don't need a variety of proxies, I do like JAP at most, and TOR second.

    You can test it easily. Install JAP (search at Google) and TOR and test them against the other proxies at:

    http://torcheck.xenobite.eu/

    Remember, when using proxies you should also disable JAVA AND JavaScript at your browser. Again, test it with and without them using the link above to see the difference. Then you know why ELITE is the one considering using it too.

    -Transparent Proxy is a normal proxy server which actually does not improve your online privacy.

    Transparent Proxy can provide one benefit by caching frequently accessed pages and this process reduces download time and speed up access for the client.many companies also use this system for filtering purposes.

    A transparent proxy will display the following information:

    REMOTE_ADDR = Proxy's IP address

    HTTP_VIA = Proxy's IP address

    HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR = Your real IP address

    -An anonymous proxy offers the caching benefits of a transparent proxy, while hiding your IP address by replacing with either the proxies IP, or a random address.

    Anonymous Proxy server does not send HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR variable to host, this improves privacy since your IP address cannot be logged.

    An anonymous proxy will display the following information:

    REMOTE_ADDR = Proxy's IP address

    HTTP_VIA = Proxy's IP address

    HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR = Proxy's IP address or a random ip
    -An elite or high anonymous proxy makes your system look the same as a non-proxied system. This provides the best security and there's no way to detect an elite proxy.

    High anonymity Servers don't send HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR, HTTP_VIA and HTTP_PROXY_CONNECTION variables. Host doesn't even know you are using proxy server and of course it doesn't know your IP address.

    A highly anonymous proxy will display the following information:

    REMOTE_ADDR = Proxy's IP address

    HTTP_VIA = blank

    HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR = blank
    :D

    Home Page:
    It is true that if the following HTTP headers are the following they are considered elite/highly anonymous:

    REMOTE_ADDR = Proxy's IP address
    HTTP_VIA = blank
    HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR = blank

    But, you also need to make sure that this header is not displayed at all:

    Cache-Control max-age

    Otherwise, it's a dead give away that you are using a proxy.
