HTTP Proxy


An HTTP Public Proxy Server is a piece of software running on a remote computer that listens on a predefined port for requests from other devices using the HTTP protocol (Mainly Web browsers and Mobile Devices like Smart phones and Tablets) and forwards those requests to a web server, specified by the calling device, to anywhere on your network or the Internet.


Depending on the proxy server's load and the response time from the remote HTTP server the proxy server may forward the response back to you as expected, or possibly, just forward a cached version of the web page.

HTTPS Proxy


An HTTPS Proxy Server is a piece of software running on a remote server that accepts requests from other computers using the HTTPS protocol (Encrypted HTTP connection, typically using a web browser) and forwards those requests to specified servers anywhere on your network or the Internet. Depending on the response from the specified server the proxy server will forward the response back to you. To speed things up though it might already have a cached version of the page and might forward the cached response to save time.

To use one of the proxy servers listed on this page you would add one of the IP addresses listed below, along with the port number listed beside it, into your computer's configuration. If you are using the Windows operating system, both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, possibly other browsers, can use these proxies by entering the configuration information into the "Internet Options" window. You do this by selecting the "Connections" tab, pressing the "LAN settings" button and entering the IP and port in the Proxy Server box. "Internet Options" can be accessed from the Tools menu in Internet Explorer or, more directly, from the "Control Panel".

SOCKS4 Proxy


There are two kinds of SOCKS proxy protocols, SOCKS4, and the more sophisticated SOCKS5 protocol. The SOCKS4 protocol is used by a proxy server to route network packets between a client and a server and can be used with any TCP and/or UDP application.

Using a Socks Proxy Server requires software with native SOCKS support so requests go through the SOCKS proxy server, rather than addressing the target host directly.

There are programs that allow any existing networked software to connect, via SOCKS, to external networks by SOCKSifying them. By SOCKSifying them I mean setting up existing networked software so their requests are automatically redirected through the SOCKS proxy server. This can be accomplished by purchasing software like, proxifier (Win, Mac), or proxycap (Win, Mac). You can find this kind of software free on the Internet for Windows at Freecap.ru and for the Mac at Socat, and for Linux, BSD, and Solaris at Dante

SOCKS5 Proxy


There are two kinds of SOCKS proxy protocols, SOCKS4, and the more sophisticated SOCKS5 protocol. Both protocols are used by a proxy server to route network packets between a client and a server and can be used with any TCP and/or UDP application. SOCKS5 also permits anonymous UDP connections as well as user authentication, so only authorized users can access the socks proxy server.

Anonymous Proxy


Anonymous proxies mask your IP, replacing it with their own, however the servers you go to may be able to detect your real IP. In practice though it is probably not going to be noticed unless the servers put in a bit of effort by adding a bit of code, before each page is displayed, that can easily detect your real IP. If your goal is to have your IP undetectable by the server you are visiting you will need a High-Anonymous proxy, or better.

High-Anonymous Proxy


The High-Anonymous proxies mask your IP, replacing it with their own. However the servers you go to may still be able to detect your real IP. This is unlikely, but servers that do add code to detect underlying IP addresses can possibly detect your IP.

Transparent Proxy


Transparent proxies don't hide, or mask, your real IP in any way. In RFC 2616 the standard definition is: "A 'transparent proxy' is a proxy that does not modify the request or response beyond what is required for proxy authentication and identification". and "A 'non-transparent proxy' is a proxy that modifies the request or response in order to provide some added service to the user agent, such as group annotation services, media type transformation, protocol reduction, or anonymity filtering".

Gateway - Sometimes called a tunneling, or transparent, proxy


A gateway is a proxy server that passes all requests and replies unchanged.


Using a Public Proxy IP and Port


To configure your system with one of the proxy server IP and Ports listed on the main index page. Take one of the IP addresses along with the port number listed beside it then paste them into your computer's configuration. If you are using the Windows operating system, both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, possibly other browsers, can use these proxies by entering the configuration information into the "Windows Internet Options" window. You do this by selecting the "Connections" tab, pressing the "LAN settings" button and entering the IP and port in the Proxy Server box. "Windows Internet Options" can be accessed from the Tools menu in Internet Explorer or, more directly, from the "Control Panel".

JavaScript


Rather than recreating the instructions for enabling JavaScript on all the different browsers we provide some links to a site that has JavaScript Enable Instructions for most of the browsers out there. You can find instructions on how to enable, or disable, Javascript in your web browser at Mister Ed's Website.

There are currently JavaScript instructions at Mister Ed's Website for:


Browsers [ Internet Explorer ] [ Firefox ] [ Mozilla ] [ Netscape ] [ AOL ] [ Opera ]
Browsers 2 [ Safari ] [ Google Chrome
Explorer Clones [ SlimBrowser ] [ Maxthon ] [ Avant ]
Mobile browsers [ Opera Mini ]


JavaScript is used to enhance web pages. Adding animation as well as responding to user input immediately. Instead of having to communicate with the web server and wait for a response JavaScript can process the request on the user's computer immediately. This speeds up the processing of web pages dramatically and creates a superior user experience.
