Question by : How is a web site recognizing me through a proxy server?

Sometimes I get banned from a web site and most of the time it’s for silly reasons. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to reset an ip address with windows 7. I tried entering the site through a proxy server, but the site still recognizes me. I’ve disabled cookies and the web site is in java. How does it still know my computer?
The web site is www.chat-avenue.com and the proxy server is www.freeproxyserver.net

  1. Dave Davidson says:

    You’re not using an “anonymous proxy” and the proxy server is passing along your IP address in the “header field” of your packets.

    solution: go to xroxy.com and change the proxy type to anonymous

    use one of these

    edit: Antonio is correct of course. Browser plugins such as java, flash, silverlight, etc. rarely respect your browsers proxy settings. This may or may not be a concern to you, depending on your needs. If you simply want to bypass a school firewall, or evade an IP ban, an anonymous proxy should suffice. If your need is complete anonymity, a VPN service might be a good alternative. They’re great, and I subscribe to one myself, but I’ve not seen one available free of charge.

    Best of luck.
