Using A Proxy

Hi all, I was wondering if someone could assist me in how to use a proxy. I was banned from a forum, haven't received a reason why, and would like to get back on to see if anything was deleted that might point to what happened. It was a political forum so who knows what the issue was!

I tried using an ip and port number from a free proxy site but it wouldn't let me on, I just kept getting the "Server Not Found" message. Do you have to go through IE to use a proxy or can I use Firefox? I was in IE as the site said I had to be, but it still wouldn't let me through. Any help would be greatly appreciated along with a site or two that would direct me.

Re: Using A Proxy

Being the owner of a forum myself, when people are banned, their IPs are also banned. I also often impose a ban on all known proxy servers for a week or two because people DO try to sneak back on. So, my advice would be to try to find a very obscure proxy to use.  

A lot of proxies have pop-unders (runs under the main page, doesnt pop-up on top like typical pop-ups) It helps keep the proxies running and they generally arent malicious ads, so i wouldnt be too concerned. 

Good luck!

In using 3proxy I can get back on, and yes they are pop-unders.  When I go around the board each time I click on a different thread a new pop-under comes up.  I just don't want a bunch of spyware on my pc.  I have things running that usually stop that from happening, but you never know!  I still don't know why I was banned and the mod won't write me back.  I would still like to find a better option than 3proxy so if anyone can help I'd appreciate it!

hidemyass.com is a good one- give it a shot. It also has pop-unders, but not quite as many as you seem to be experiencing. Also, they are not spyware, just regular annoying ads :)

Re: Using A Proxy

out of curiosity, and since I run adult sites and forums myself, where do you find the list of known proxies you use when banning?  That would be most helpful to me.

Exactly How do I use a Proxy?

I went to a free proxy. It said to type in my address and and it would take me where I wanted to go.

So I want my IP address to be conceled because I am stalking the woman of my dreams (my X girlfriend) on myspace lol, and she said we need some distance because she is hot for this up-and-comming assistant movie producer in Hollywood. If they're talking on myspace (which they currently are), then I pretty much have no shot because I can't compete with that. So I check to see the progress of their relationship and the conversations they post... hoping that eventually he'll lose interest since they haven't gotten too serious yet. But I do not want her to see that someone (me) keeps visiting her page. So, how can I use a proxy to check the status of their relationship and see if there's a time when this Brett Favre type might be out of the picture so I can make my move? HAHA!!! Do I just go to that free proxy page and start searching from there, or do I need to do some other things when I get to that page before searching?

Re: Exactly How do I use a Proxy?

Awesome, Thanks very much! Oh, by the way.. if I go to one of any proxy sites, do i just use their search box to goto the link I want? Or do I have to do something first in order to be searching under their proxy address?

Proxy from a specific location

I have adblock in Firefox, so I am not as concerned about my real IP  being tracked, but I AM curious if there is a way to choose an IP so that someone will think they are being viewed by someone in a particular city.

Does anyone know of a proxy site that lets you choose an alternate IP (just generally by city)?
