Question by Philip D: Does anyone know how to block people who are browsing my site with a proxy browsing service?

Does anyone know how to block people who are browsing my site with a proxy browsing service? I don’t want people visiting and hiding their identity.

It’s pretty hard to do. Basically you’d have to browse to your own site yourself while using a proxy service, and then check your server logs for where its coming from and just ban that host. You would have to do this for all the proxies however, since there is no universal way to detect if someone is using one. (Especially if they are using Tor, in which case it becomes impossible)

Realistically, It can’t be done. You would also run the risk of getting very unpopular. People don’t like being forced to give more information than they want. Proxies exist for a reason (other than for kids to use Myspace at school) and that is for peoples privacy. And In my opinion, you should respect that.

    I have used many proxy sites over the years be it PHP CGI glype watever,
    Nowadays none seem to bypass the ever strong filters{ websense, K9 , bess},
    some things one should observe when looking for a proxy site:

    -Shouldn’t be a .info { filters by default block them coz most are proxy sites}
    -Shouldnt contain the words proxy or others like myspace,orkut,bebo in it. { they keyword filter those}
    -On the safe side should be a SSL encrypted ones {https sites filter find them difficult to scan}
    -Should be a reputable provider and provide fresh domains update {So that proxy owners dont steal our information,
    face the fact domains will get blocked eventually, so its necessary to provide new ones.}
    -I would recommend CGI proxy , even if they are time consuming they give the desired results.

    Currently i use https://foreverunblocked.info from pagemod.com proxies.They have both CGI and PHP proxies in them.
    Very Reputable,SSL enabled, does provide new domains by just sending a mail to pagemod@gmail.com

    Happy Browsing , Hope I was of some help
