Surf Web anonymously with proxy servers

Surf Web anonymously with proxy servers

People have differnet reasons for anonymous web surfing. Usually they all surf them with anonymous web proxies. There are many different types  of proxy servers available, some are very specialized in keeping anonymity of its user while other, not so good ones leak out a little information. This article will describe how you can surf web anonymously using a proxy server.

If you’re trying to surf a site like myspace, hotmail or yahoo mail from work or school and its blocked by your school, work or government, maybe you want to go on a site without anyone knowing what your doing, or if you are a chinese user trying to get past the great filtering wall, suppose you are trying to access Google blocked by authorities, the simplest way to do it is by using a web proxy.  A proxy is another computer that is like a mask your computer puts on when it connects to the Internet.  It’s also a private gateway to blocked sites because the site you are actually surfing is hidden behind the proxy, which is unblocked.  For example, if you go to a web proxy in London and surf the Web, every other computer in the world thinks you are from London!

There are plenty of free web proxy sites that you can use.  The problem is that many of the popular ones also get blocked by people at your school, company or government.  However, once you find one that is not blocked, all you do is go to the proxy site, enter the URL you want to browse and click go!  Its that easy.

You can then click on any links in the page you are browsing and you’re still anonymous to the outside world.  Just remember that if you go to a proxy and its blocked or no longer works, its no big deal, thee are thousands of them.  Just try another one and eventually you will find a web proxy that lets you browse internet freely and privately. I’ll talk about setting up proxy servers on your favorite browsers in some other article.

You can find a number of freely available proxy list on this site:- http://proxy.org/cgi_proxies.shtml

http://www.proxyauthority.com has a long list of free proxy servers to use and choose.

Anonymouse.org exists since 1997 and is one of the oldest privacy-services around. It offers anonymous surfing, emailing and posting for free under http://Anonymouse.org/.

  1. An anonymous factor server (sometimes called a net substitute) broadly attempts to anonymize trap surfing. There are weird varieties of anonymizers. A particular of the more mutual variations is the free proxy. Because they are typically difficult to street, unbar proxies are especially useful to those seeking online anonymity, from factional dissidents to computer criminals. Some users are essentially interested in anonymity for the sake of added security, hiding their identities from potentially malicious websites instead of illustration, or on principle, to facilitate constitutional kind rights of freedom of idiolect, because instance. The server receives requests from the anonymizing proxy server, and then does not away with information about the end user’s address. Despite that, the requests are not anonymous to the anonymizing proxy server, and so a position of conviction is donation between the substitute server and the user. Varied of them are funded sometimes non-standard due to a continued advertising affiliation to the user.

    Access repress: Some agent servers implement a logon requirement. In unselfish organizations, authorized users requirement log on to pick up access to the web. The syndicate can thereby prints manipulation to individuals.

    Some anonymizing proxy servers may step up figures packets with header lines such as HTTP_VIA, HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR, or HTTP_FORWARDED, which may ventilate the IP whereabouts of the client. Other anonymizing delegate servers, known as elite or ear-splitting anonymity proxies, not subsume the REMOTE_ADDR header with the IP address of the delegate server, making it evident that the factor server is the client. A website could still doubt a proxy is being toughened if the client sends packets which group a cookie from a whilom take in that did not profit by the tipsy anonymity substitute server. Clearing cookies, and possibly the cache, would solve this problem.

    The only proxy solution that rely works are Onion Router and JAP ! All web sites/servers who are interested in collection of user information don’t want to user to surf under SSL and other encryption methods due they have no job and/or can not espionage on us in whatever manor they are doing this !!! So exit nodes on Onion router and others servers are blocked even by Google it self not to mention all others ! We can not do nothing about it legally but we can attack such servers and bring them down ! Who has the right to bianco surveillance internet – us user ! So unless one do not have 1000% working proxy solution that mask as ordinary user computer everything is just waist of time ! And so called free proxy’s are not to be trusted ! If one have good ISP they will not reveal user information due legislative in countries where user anonymity and privacy on internet something means ! So is far more better to trust your own ISP as such proxy solution ! And there is huge mess with proxy lists that newer works and poorly codded app doing some task by hand as we aren’t using the computer and so on ! Totally useless and waist of time !!! In past two years i wasn’t capable to chain two proxy’s despite using all the available tech (not Onion Router this is matrix hoping proxy servers and just works but has in 90% blocked exit nodes that are known so one can not surf freely without being cut off ! Exit nodes on Onion Router should be totally anonymous ! In that way is useless for ordinary user ! Other app are to pretty much useless resulting in slow connection cut off connections due policy mess up and so on and something for networking engineers and for those who are IT Pros !!! With such review you are only giving and provide false security to user not to mention headache’s due not workin problematic useless proxy app and servers !!! Get serious ! The only real thing would be Onion Router installed on Google Servers that are spread ed all over world ! Someone should code this in mixed mode so we have some sort private/open mode through google servers and they were only tunnells and no one will ever know which ip is which in some P2P manor and half way encrypted connections for all the traffic !!! Imagine some sort of hydra virus that will do that just like messed up knots !!! EUREKA ! But we will apparently must wait for some alliens to do this !!! Until then trust your ISP if not then no internet and bye bye internet and development of telecomunications !!!
