Any FREE proxies that work through secure (https) sites?
« on: May 09, 2006, 03:07:06 AM »
I've tried using anonycat, the cloak, proxify, and anonycat doesn't work through secure sites and the cloak and proxify require you to buy their service for post/interactive sites.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's hard to find a free web proxy that support https (SSL) sites.
But many http proxies support SSL. You can try to use a http proxy to access the https sites.

Can you explain that? It sounds like you contradicted yourself with those two statements (i.e. it's hard to find one that supports it, but most support it?)

As you may have guessed, I'm a novice at all this, how do you use the long strings of IP numbers, the things that look like 1.0000.200.100?

Web proxy that support https: proxify.com, secure-tunnel.com, but they are not free. It's hard to find free ones.

For example:
Code: [Select]
70.230.207.114:64923
70.170.98.64:7212
69.144.199.199:7212
222.117.32.44:50050

They are http proxies, but you can use them to connect to https sites, such as:
Code: [Select]
https://www.google.com

Okay, so what confuses me is how to use the long string of numbers you just posted. Do you need a special piece of software to utilize those, or what?

The port number is the number after the colon, correct?

How do you know if it's working? What does it mean if you use the proxy checker on this site, and it says you are possibly using a proxy but your IP number is the same no matter what numbers you enter?

Yes.

Maybe you are using transparent proxies.

Transparent proxies (not anonymous, simply HTTP) change the request fields, also they transfer real IP. Such proxies are not applicable for security and privacy while surfing on net. You can use them only for network speed improvement.

I tried using some from the high anonymous proxy list in this forum, the June 13th one, and the same thing happened... in fact, I've never entered one that changes my IP at showmyip.com. Why is that?

I think I've gotten them to work, but I wonder - why would anyone go to the hassle of using these on a regular basis? 75% of them don't seem to work, even when the lists are fresh, which makes for a tedious trial-and-error period, and when you do find ones that work, they slow down your connection.

Is this supposed to happen? If so, why do people use them when it lengthens 15 minutes of surfing into a 45 minute long chore?

Wow!  Are you for real?  Ever notice people indicating in the various threads here (or wherever you leech your proxies) the names of software they used to test the proxies?  That's what everyone should be doing before blindly using a proxy themselves.

The status of a proxy is momentary.  Meaning it can be anonymous one minute and transparent the next or vice versa and/or it can be working one minute and not the next.
I tell it like it is and that's offensive to those professing knowledge they don't have.

I didn't try it. According to their website:
Secure-Tunnel supports secure surfing and communication (such as IRC, ICQ and Email).

But it doesn't tell whether it supports forums, FTP and SSL.
You'd better contact their technical support for further information.
