Proxy instruction and notes

Web browser instructions

  • Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet options > Connections > LAN settings > Use a proxy server > Advanced > HTTP.
  • Opera: Tools > Preferences > Advanced > Network.

Anonymity levels

  • Level 1: No anonymity; remote host knows your IP and knows you are using proxy.
  • Level 4: Low anonymity; remote host does not know your IP, but it knows you are using proxy.
  • Level 8: Medium anonymity; remote host knows you are using proxy, and thinks it knows your IP, but this is not yours (this is usually a multihomed proxy which shows its inbound interface as REMOTE_ADDR for a target host).
  • Level 16: High anonymity; remote host does not know your IP and has no direct proof of proxy usage (proxy-connection family header strings). If such hosts do not send additional header strings it may be considered as high-anonymous. If a high-anonymous proxy supports keep-alive you can consider it to be extremely-anonymous. However, such a host is highly possible to be a honey-pot.

Planet Lab / CoDeeN

PlanetLab proxy servers marked with a icon are from the Planetlab CoDeeN (CDN) Project, a network of educational Internet nodes at Princeton University. These proxies may force a captcha and allocate you a different IP address as advertised.

Security notes

Our proxy list database consists of third-party 'open proxies'; proxy servers set up for public use. We have absolutely NO control over any of these proxy servers and can not vouch for security, therefore USE OUR DATABASE AT YOUR OWN RISK. For a guaranteed secured encrypted connection, private servers in our control, reliable fast speeds and multiple servers world-wide we recommend you use our VPN service.
