confused. looking for proxy solution for rented vps
« on: March 07, 2012, 02:47:32 PM »
hello,

i have a vps that runs a perl scraping script on a dialy basis. is there any way to protect the ip? what other ways could i lower the risk of ip ban? if the script runs daily on a cron job... does it really matter if they know the ip or not if they pick up the pattern?

i'm not doing anything devious, the information i gather is not published or used for any other reason than my personal education of a retail industry. it's just easier than manually entering the information...which would be impossible.

is there some kind of line you shouldn't cross before you earn the attention of their admins and risk questioning or ban?

the only info i've found so far is how to run a proxy from your personal browser. i have no idea if it's possible to set something up for a cript running on a rented vps.



thanks!

Terry

If you know how to setup a PHP website, you can try glype. If you are familiar with Linux, you can try Squid. If you are using Windows VPS, you can try Wingate or CCProxy.

But it may be too complex for you if you are not an technician.
