Anonymous proxies don't seem to be anonymous
« on: August 21, 2006, 07:42:48 PM »
I've started using anonymous proxies and decided to check them out on Shields UP!

Every one I checked showed my correct IP address. I shut off java but my IP address is still showing.

Does anyone have any idea on why this may be happening?

Thanks!

Terry,
Thanks for the reply!

I use an add on for Firefox called Switch Proxy so I don't think I need to switch to manual settings.

I may be wrong, but that's what I thought.

Thanks, again.
