Question by Kool-Aide: Is there a way to trace an IP address through a proxy server?

For instance there is somebody who keeps spamming on my website forums and I have his IP address but he is using a proxy. Is there a program or way to trace his IP through the proxy?

Most proxies are anonymous so they do not keep any records and there is no way to trace an IP past the proxy icon sad Is there a way to trace an IP address through a proxy server?

If the proxy he uses is not anonymous then you can ask the owner of the proxy to just tell you his real IP icon biggrin Is there a way to trace an IP address through a proxy server?

    You can track it while the signal is live, however that would require catching him in the act which is technically illegal in most countries.

    Even if you did find his IP, it wouldn’t help because your webhost would only be able to see the IP of whatever proxy he’s running through which would most likely change all the time.

    Most website hosts allow blocking of proxies. This would block ALL proxies though.

    There are HTML codes to achieve this, and also PHP addons that do the trick.

    Yes, although it depends on the type of proxy being used and your skill level.

    The basic method of breaking any proxy involves forcing protocols and ports that the proxy does not support. A simple Flash or Java applet can break Tor and most other common proxies. The applet makes a direct connection to the server, bypassing the proxy. It can also be done with Javascript, although that is much easier for the end user to detect, and alter.
