can someone explain, or help me with, proxies?

Post by amatoxin on Mon Aug 12, 2013 1:40 pm

never had a use for them til now.

i was "banned" from a website that i really need to use daily. i need to still be able to check the site daily.. but know nothing about using proxies.. im decent with computers and computer parts, etc. but completely lost when it comes to network shit.

i installed some shitty, free, proxy app on my android and was able to make a new account and sign right back in so i know its possible. unfortunately the app sucks, forces me to type addresses over and over, and im having a hard time reading/functioning the site on my droid.

im not sure if there are any *FREE* proxy apps, or firefox add-ons, etc. out there, and not really sure where to start looking. tried google, but just dont know where to start. any help would be highly appreciated.. im pretty good at following directions, i just need some steps to follow. hopefully, it doesnt involve me messing with my wireless router settings...

hope someone can help. thanks in advance. feel free to private message, if for some reason you dont want to type it out here..

there are free proxies....but...most of the times they are fbi-honeypots, so be carefull...

if you want to be more safe (not 100% !!!!) go to this:

https://www.torproject.org/

but be carefull when you use it, as cookies, javascript of flash can fuck up the whole thing and give away your ip-adress and more.....

If you're worried about privacy, wait a while before using TOR again. After Freedom Hosting got raided last week (he was hosting something like 40% of all TOR nodes), shit got real. Right now, the FBI has access to over half of the entire TOR network, entirely unencrypted. I wouldn't trust it for a long long while.

Now onto proxies.

If you're using Firefox (aka the best browser), install FoxyProxy https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/foxyproxy-standard/
Then go to this site http://free-proxy-list.net/
Find one you want to use and then put it into FoxyProxy's settings under HTTP Proxy, not SOCKS Proxy.

yes, and now they are going after the silkroad.... (i'm getting seriously sick of americans and their 'war' on drugs & war on terror)

but not everyone was fucked (i thought), only guys who used a certain version of tor (with javascript enabled)

as far as i know proxies are not illegal....but are used for illegal stuff, so the fbi is quite interested in them.

but...i do not know if they are illegal in the usa (wouldn't be surprised as they are constantly spying on everyone)


edit: as far as the illegal stuff, it's not downloading....guys are using them for browsing illegal porn, phishing etc. etc. ....and there are lots of hacking groups on tor's hidden network (selling/trading creditcard numbers, 0-days, virusses, botnets etc. etc. )

ok, i installed add-on, picked an elite proxy from US, i hit "add new proxy" and pasted address in "host or ip address" bar. i didnt check SOCKS. didnt add name or domain. now, in my "proxies tab" i have my new address, and another named "default". they are both enabled. "selecet mode" says 'use proxy "[pasted proxy here]" for all URLs'. i went to "what is my ip" site and it shows my new address with "no proxy detected". am i finished?

several quick questions:

-any other options i need to tweak?
-does it matter if i use this 2nd address as default for all URLs?
-how long does this proxy last? do i need to manually change the proxy? if so, how often?
-is this safe for my computer and its contents?

-i really only need to use this address for 1 site.. i noticed you can set "patterns", so is it wise to only set this for the sites i want to be hidden from? if so, is "setting a pattern" the same as copy and pasting a url? sorry, new to all these settings.. dont want to miss anything.

thank you very much for the help.

hidemyass was a more simple concept, i checked that as well. both seem extremely useful and easy to use. the add-on settings are confusing me at the moment, but im probably just high.

i keep getting this message when i try to search on google:

"We're sorry...

... but your computer or network may be sending automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now."

the IP i picked from the list had "yes" checked for google.. and it was working earlier..

These proxies get used by thousands of people all over the world, so sites frequently block them, at which point, you'll have to use another. People abuse free proxies to complete surveys for points/bitcoins, etc. When one goes bad, you just get another. There's a way to configure foxyproxy to grab a random proxy from that website I gave you and change it daily, or even from a text file, but I don't know how.
