Proxy Multiply Unlimited Proxy Finding Explained

Many are unsure of what happens when you click the “Get Proxies” button in Proxy Multiply. If your list of proxies is empty (0 proxies in it), Proxy Multiply will scrape proxies from the list of ‘Proxy Fetching URLs’ found in the Configuration window. The program will work its way through the list of URLs one at a time. When it is finished, the status window will indicate how many proxies it harvested from the URLs. (click to enlarge) If your proxy list already contains proxies, Proxy Multiply will begin utilizing its unique search mechanism to find proxies on Google, Bing and Yahoo. It will search the websites using your existing proxy list as a search criteria. For example, when you go to Google and type in ‘red car’, you find more red cars. When Proxy Multiply searches for a proxy (58.221.227.38:3128 for example), it will find more pages with other proxies on them. See the example pic below: (click to enlarge) After finding more pages containing proxies, Proxy Multiply will crawl the pages and extract the proxies. You can do this by hand and find just as many proxies as Proxy Multiply does, but the program cuts down on the time required to do so considerably while still producing a very large quantity of proxies. With Proxy Multiply’s unique search methods, you will always have a source of fresh, updated...

Updates and Potential Additional Fees

Updates First, the most recent documented updates from Proxy Multiply: 1.0.0.41 ——- – Code maintenance. 1.0.0.40 ——- – HTTP proxies will now test properly as high anonymous elite again. 1.0.0.39 ——- – Added support for checking HTTP proxies with IP:Port:username:password format. 1.0.0.38 ——- – Bug fix with freezing. – Proxy checking should be more reliable now. As noted in the updates, we now host our own proxy judge. Here is a screenshot from the application regarding the change: Proxies have not been testing properly for the last 3-5 days and we know that our users deserve an explanation. The issue is due to Jrim Software now hosting its own proxy judge. Unfortunately, every user of Proxy Multiply has a different technical knowledge level, and many do not even know what a proxy judge is. For that reason, relying on public proxy judges creates a handful of issues that were previously beyond our control. Often times public proxy judges are dead within 2-3 days after being set as the public judge for Proxy Multiply. We then decided it was best to host our own judge. After hosting our own judge and seeing how much traffic all Proxy Multiply users were sending to the proxy judges, it is very easy to understand why these servers were crashing or simply removing the file from the server and shutting the judge down. Furthermore, public proxy judges will frequently report mixed results. That is to say, out of 100 requests to the judge, maybe 40-50 requests actually go through properly causing working proxies to report as dead. The lack of stability is hard to...

What is a proxy and why do I need one?

As it turns out, many people on the internet do not even know what a proxy is, let alone how to effectively use one. There is nothing wrong with not knowing, but being familiar with proxies is imperative to staying safe on the internet. However, before you can fully understand using proxies (which will be covered in our next article), it is best to have some background information on what you are dealing with. A proxy acts like a middleman between you and the resource you are seeking on the internet. It is analogous to any other sort of middle person – for example, Wal-Mart is the middleman between you and the manufacturer. Likewise, a proxy is a middle man between a website and you. It receives all of the information from the website and then passes that information to you. But why in the world would one need a middle man for internet related things? In a retail situation (think Wal-Mart again), it makes sense: it is easier to communicate with Wal-Mart than for the manufacturer to individually seek out customers. This is in sharp contrast to the internet where you have direct access to information! Despite this difference, there is a key factor being overlooked: your identity. Without a proxy passing information on to you from the website, the website is communicating directly with you and your PC. Now that website has your information. It has your IP address. Your IP address is in the same form as a proxy, e.g. 127.0.0.1. Four sets of numbers ranging from 0 to 255. Similar to a phone number, an...
