No valid proxies -- so how to evaluate?
« on: June 22, 2008, 01:20:52 AM »
How can I evaluate this product when all Proxy IPs in the default list are unavailable, and I can't download an up-to-date list because it's an evaluation version?

The default proxies in EPS are very old, you can copy some proxies from this forum to EPS.

OK, thanks. I eventually figured out what you meant and pasted in over 500 from recent posts in the High Anonymous Proxies section.

After filtering out the non-responsive I was left with 81, only 11 of them being actually being Level 1.

However the service at
Code: [Select]
http://whatismyipaddress.com
doesn't seem to have any problem reporting my correct IP address when I'm using a Level 1 proxy.

Please explain.

I just tried that url using a level 1 proxy and it cannot detect my real IP.
You can also try this URL to test your proxy:
http://www.my-proxy.com/show-what-ip

Please post or PM me the level 1 proxies if they still reveal your real IP.

Here are just the top five off my list:

78.83.71.7:6588
125.99.92.61:6588
201.238.181.202:6588
157.82.47.203:8088
189.52.53.61:6588

whatismyipaddress.com sees through all of them.

Sorry, all of those proxies are dead.
You can try these:

Code: [Select]
129.130.252.138:3127
132.187.230.2:3127
132.187.230.2:3124
204.56.0.137:3127
141.213.004.201:3124

It seems they all die pretty quickly, but the ones I mentioned weren't dead when I tried them.

Or if they were then Elite Proxy Switcher "lied" about them testing OK, because I tried them within minutes of loading and testing and deleting all the failures.

Proxy Switcher failed all but these two of the ones you posted in your previous message:

132.187.230.2:3127
218.249.83.87:8080

And whatismyipaddress.com saw straight through both of them.

I was looking forward to promoting this application to my newsletter subscribers, but it's beginning to look like I'm wasting my time, unless you have some concrete suggestion that will prove to me that Elite Proxy Switcher actually works.

I cannot use 218.249.83.87:8080 to surf any website.

132.187.230.2:3127 is a CoDeeN proxy, but I cannot use it to visit whatismyipaddress.com, getting a 403 error. If you use it to visit cmyip.com, you will see it hide your real IP.

Well, it was you who gave it to me. Here are my results with those two IPs:

------------------------------------------

Firefox status bar reads: 218.249.83.87

Code: [Select]
Webpage http://www.cmyip.com displays:
My IP is 121.210.198.54
My country is Australia
My city is

Firefox status bar reads: 132.187.230.2

It's no good to keep suggesting different IP-checking Web pages. If a highly regarded IP checker like whatismyipaddress.com can report my IP correctly then it doesn't matter what any other site says.

I could very easily put up a webpage that would say your IP address was invisible if your name was Terry! Wouldn't mean it was right though.

And incidentally, whatismyipaddress.com correctly establishes my city, whereas cmyip.com doesn't report anything for city.
