Title: It still shows my real IP
Post by: Mark51 on March 24, 2011, 10:25:44 PM
Hello, Terry.

I really like the potential of your program.
However, either I'm doing something wrong, or it ain't workin' !

I downloaded the free Socks version.
Installed the Add-on to use with Firefox.
Downloaded some Socks proxies.
Tested them...  found some good ones.
I set one of 'em (111.2.3.4) as the current active proxy.

Your IP Checker at http://ip.my-proxy.com/
tells me that my IP is 111.2.3.4.
Cool. 

The IP Checker at
Code: [Select]
http://www.ip-adress.com/proxy_list/tells me that my IP is 111.2.3.4.
Cool.  I think I'm anonymous.

However, the Cloakfish IP checker at
Code: [Select]
http://proxy-check.squabbel.com/tells me...
"Your IP is 111.2.3.4 (leaked ip=999.8.7.6), no proxy can be detected"
That 999.8.7.6 Is My REAL IP !  OK, not Really, but you know what I mean.
Thus,...  I am NOT anonymous.

The lower right corner of Firefox says I'm on the proxy.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks.

The leadked IP is shown in a Flash (decloak.swf). Your browser are using the proxy but Flash is using the direct connect. It's complex to use Flash to detect whether the user is using a proxy so the website said "no proxy can be detected".

You can be relax because most sites won't use Flash to detect proxy. If you are serious, you can disable Flash in your browser.

Thanks for your reply, Terry, but…
Yes…  I'm serious.  And the website that I'm trying to get thru is also serious.
They've already cut me off once.
They have Great programmers who try to keep me from doing what I want to do.
I'm Sure that THEY do not have Flash disabled on their system.
It may be difficult, but they Will go to the trouble of detecting me.
My disabling of Flash in MY browser will do me no good…  is that correct?

I need to be bulletproof Very Anonymous.
 
The research that I've done indicates…
Certain HTTP headers are still being forwarded during the connection.
Those Headers are allowing them to see my real IP.
Is that correct?  (I'm good, but not great at web technical stuff.)

I Really like what your website says you can do.
I would like to use your service…  IF it does what I need.
Do you have a way around this problem?

And…  I'm just curious…  Why did you change the name of my post?

Thanks.

No. Only some sites need Flash such as Youtube. Most sites do not need Flash such as Google. If you need the most anonymous, you can disable Flash.

No, there is no header that forwarding your real IP if you use socks proxy. You can see all HTTP headers here:
http://ip.my-proxy.com

It's for the purpose of SEO.
