    Chaoz, the problem with testing is you have to have the right info before you can do the test.

    If I want to test chained proxies I have to:

    *. Know how to set up the chain in the browser window (type [url]http://[/url] before each proxy or not?), and

    2. Discover which proxies allow chaining.

    I can't do #2 if I don't know #*.

    Kind people have given some great URLs here. But sometimes these pages give conflicting or inadequate information. Like this subject we're discussing.

    might help

    Here is something i had on the subject
    might help .....

    How a Proxy Server Works: Chaining Proxy Servers.

    A proxy server acts as a gateway between you and the Internet. With a proxy server enabled on your Web browser, your request for a web page (or a download) goes first to the proxy server, where it checks if someone had previously accessed that page (or download). If it finds one, then it will just give it to you from the proxy server -- that makes loading a page or downloading something significantly faster. If the proxy server doesn't detect an already existing page or download, it will go out to the Internet, get the page or download, and give it to you. Since it is the proxy server that actually connects to the site you are viewing or downloading from, it is the IP of the proxy that is left in the remote server's logs, and not the IP that you are currently using.

    Many proxy servers keep logs of the IP's that have connected to them, however, if you use a proxy physically located in a country that is not especially friendly with the one in which you reside, it can make it difficult for someone to obtain the logs, even with a subpoena. You can increase the level of difficulty by "chaining" proxies, or having one proxy connect to another proxy. To maximize the difficulty of tracing the originating IP, each proxy should be located in a different country.

    To use a proxy server with Internet Explorer.
    *. Open up Internet Explorer.
    2. Go to the View menu and select Internet Options.
    *. A window will appear with several tabs along the top. Click on the Connection tab.
    4. Click on the checkbox by "Access the Internet using a proxy server" to activate it.


    To use a proxy server with Netscape Communicator.
    *. Open up Communicator.
    2. Go to the Edit menu and select Preferences.
    *. A window will now appear, with your options listed on the left-hand side. Double-click on the word Advanced.
    4. When you click on Advanced, three options will appear: Cache, Proxies, and SmartUpdate. Click on Proxies.
    5. You'll now see some options with radio buttons beside them. Click on the radio button beside "Manual proxy configuration" to select it.


    One SIMPLE way to "chain" proxies is to enter the information for one proxy directly into your browser's proxy configuration setup. Then connect to a web anonymizer which is also a proxy, and from there, to the site you want to view. Anyone trying to trace your actual IP would now have to subpoena the logs from TWO proxy servers. You could chain in a third proxy server by entering it into the address bar of your browser, in conjunction with the URL of the web anonymizer. The URL that you type should look something like this: This would, in effect, connect you to proxy A, the one specified in your browser configuration, then to proxy B, then to proxy C, and finally, to the web anonymizer, from where you would enter the URL of the site you want to visit, using FOUR proxy servers chained together.

    This does not work with all proxies, and finding publicly accessible proxy servers is becoming more difficult.

    Talking OK, I've seen this before

    Thanks guys. Data, your example (without the smileys:-) seems to be the most repeated answer given so I guess it is correct.

    NOW--how do you test to find which proxies are chainable? It can't be put it in browser-test-throw away-test another-throw away-test another-throw away...

    Can it?

    I can't confirm if it works because...

    ...I've yet to find two proxies that will accept chaining! That's the wall I'm up against: how do you find *chainable* proxies.
