Difference between strict and normal method
« on: November 22, 2005, 12:56:59 PM »
Can you explain me difference between strict and normal mode in advanced settings?

First i have tried normal mode and i have got 6210 anonymous level (1 level!). I know that this cannot be true because i normaly get  from 300-700 anonymous proxies when i use 5000-7000 proxylist.
I have tested this 6210 anonymous proxies again with different tool (Atomatic proxy leecher - APL) and i have used the same provyjudge. From 6210 "anonymos proxies" i have got 276 anonymos proxies.

I have leeched again with your leecher but this time i have used strict metod when i was testing proxies. The result was now similiar to APL.

I would like to know more about this to metods (strict, normal). How do they work? Can you speed up strict metod in the future? APL is very fast tester.
I know that primary function of your tool is searching for proxies but it will be great if the tests are quick and accurate.

Keep the good work.
I wish you many success.

In the strict mode, the remote host name of Level 1 proxies must equal to the remote IP adress. It will make the number of Level 1 proxies much less. It is recommended to use the normal mode.

The online proxy tester: also uses the strict mode:
REMOTE_HOST       Dubious
REMOTE_PORT                56775
Conclusion                     You are possibly using a proxy.

ProxyJudge gives you the level of your proxy, also using the strict mode:
REMOTE_HOST includes proxy server word "".

But not all the web server will use REMOTE_HOST to detect whether the client is using a proxy because it will make the server overload. You can find that the slight PHP proxyjudge always return nothing for REMOTE_HOST.
You can find PHP proxyjudge example here:

I know many proxy test tools just use the level on the ProxyJudge page to classify the proxies, which is more faster. I don't think it's a good method. FPL judges the proxies by itself using the information from ProxyJudge according to its own principle:
High Anonymous Proxy (Level 1): The web server can't detect whether you are using a proxy by the information your browser sent.
Anonymous Proxy (Level 2): The web server knows that you are probably using a proxy, but it can't detect your real IP.
Transparent Proxy (Level 3): The web server knows that you are using a proxy and it can also detect your real IP address.
