It still picks up my home country?
« on: February 16, 2009, 05:35:46 AM »
Hey there,

Here are the steps I followed:

- OK I clicked on a Level 1 proxy for the US
- I disabled Foxyproxy
- I then checked the proxy via the "IP to Country" tool

But when I typed in the url for the required site, it still picks up that I'm from my home country?????

What am I missing?

Any advice is greatly appreciated...

Regards

Greg

Did you see the proxy in the right bottom of your Firefox?

u may try something like FreeCup program. U must fill in the proxy there and add ur Firefox into the program list.

Hey Terry,

Yes, I first made sure the proxy was in the bottom corner of Firefox.

Then, I tested the proxy at http://www.my-proxy.com/show-what-ip

And only then did I attempt to get hold of the required web address......

Any ideas?

Regards

Greg

Hey anyproxy,

I've searched for the software that you mentioned but can't find it anywhere....

Do you have a link to it?

Regards

To surf the "show-what-ip" page is a manual way to test the proxies.
EPS already does that for you automatically.
You can just use the proxies that are marked as Level 1 by EPS.

OK that clears up a misunderstanding on my part....

However, do you have any idea as to why the required web page still picks up my home country even though I'm going through a L1 proxy?

Thanks...
Greg

There is some problem with that proxy.
You may test it again, it becomes Level 3.
Please switch to another Level 1 proxy.
