about auto hide IP software and proxys

Post by jjkls24can »

i recently got the auto hide ip sofware.i wanted to know how safe it is or how much it actually protects. here's my questions

1. how do i find out if the software i am using is using a Anonymous Proxy, Distorting Proxy, or High Anonymity Proxy???
2. If the webssite i visit is really serious about the location of the viewer, is it possible for the site to actually find my ip despite me using such software?


thanks

@jjkls24can
Some of the following keywords strip you naked. They are sent secretly to host:

HTTP_USER_AGENT Browser type, Operating System (OS)
HTTP_FORWARDED Shows exactly where you're coming from
HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR Your true IP and "hopping IPs"
HTTP_CLIENT_IP Your true IP
HTTP_VIA Name of your Proxy
REMOTE_HOST your host name and address -country, ets

More info: http://www.freeproxy.ru/en/free_proxy/f ... nymity.htm :mrgreen:

Or you can check your anonymity for yourself with :twisted: :

...sorry, I forgot to answer you the 2nd question:

If a site really wants to know who visits it. It can trace you easily. The 3rd link I give you above uses the JAVASCRIPT (that is embedded in its webpage) to make you nude :mrgreen: You can disable the JAVASCRIPT option but you may run into troubles with other webpages (weird things may happen: e.g. error 404, missing images, etc.).

A good proxy will clip only such IP-digging script but keep other stuffs remaining.
