Question by james: What is the upside to using proxy software versus a proxy site?

Anyone know good proxy software? Where can i find more info on proxies?

Best answer:

Answer by Reed
If you use proxy software or a proxy site you may have certain limitations such as bandwidth or advertising. The best solution is to use your own proxy server. If you have a hosting account, such as Dreamhost, you can usually set it up to act as a proxy server that gives you unlimited access to most services, including flash videos, etc.

    There is no upside as they are risky and dangerous.

    Your school or work filter can easily detect a proxy the very minute you try to use it and either block it on the fly or notify an admin to block it manually. There is no proxy that these new filter techniques cannot stop.

    At the end of the day all proxy’s will eventually get blocked. As the filtering software gets more advanced they will get blocked faster and faster.

    There is also the question of the rules and laws you are breaking by trying to hack their security system.

    Proxies also leak all sorts of information through other applications not affected by the proxy like java and Flash. So you think you’re skating free not realizing how thin the ice really is.

    Finally even if you get a proxy to work for a short time you are inviting the proxy owner, many of whom are using the proxy for hacking purposes, to infect and or hijack your school or work network. Read more on the problems with proxies below.

    proxy software allows you to use socks proxy or tunneling it’s more safe and anonymous.
    “special software can automatically enable TCP and UDP networking for client applications (e.g. Socks Cap or FreeCap). Such software captures all traffic of the program and route it onto a SOCKS proxy.”

    Try out these brand new proxies. These proxies support MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, Bebo, and just about any other website. Just type in a URL and press GO!

    Join mailing list to get new sites so you can use other sites when those sites get blocked.
    Use the middle one: “glype” if you want to download large files (large than 9MB).

    Use the https proxy if you don’t want your school to detect the proxies so quickly.

    Type the proxy address on google to get more proxy websites if your school blocks all of the above

  5. I guess that to get the credit loans from creditors you should have a good motivation. However, once I’ve received a auto loan, just because I wanted to buy a house.

    That is understandable that money makes people autonomous. But what to do if someone doesn’t have cash? The one way is to get the mortgage loans or short term loan.
