Anonymizers, free web proxies, CGI proxy lists
Anonymizer is originally a tool for hiding information about a computer or user on the network from a remote server. Client software can connect to the anonymizer as a proxy server or, for example, as a website (web proxy). Today, web proxies are the most popular, as they do not require any additional settings or software.
The web anonymizer works as follows: the user visits the website providing the anonymizer service, enters the address of the web page that the user wishes to visit anonymously in the address bar. The anonymizer downloads this page for itself, processes it, and transfers it to the user on its behalf (the name of the anonymizing server). The scope of use of anonymizers today has shifted from ensuring the confidentiality of user information to providing access to websites prohibited on the local network.
You can find detailed information on what anonymizer is and the definition of other terms (proxies, proxy types, proxy comparison table: HTTP, SOCKS and CGI, anonymous surfing) in our frequently asked questions section .

By WWW without a trace
When traveling on the Internet, we don’t often think about leaving traces of our visits every time we go to a website. Perhaps this would not be worth worrying if the volume of information that the site owners could potentially get about us were not so great.
Standard log files, ingenious scripts and other tricks of curious owners can learn a lot about you: the type of computer and operating system, country of residence, name and address of the provider, and even often your email address and your name.
There are many reasons why a user may not want to leave traces of their stay. Here and the reluctance to disclose your email address, so as not to become a victim of spam, and the need to get information from a site that varies the response depending on the country from which the request was sent. Or, for example, you often go to the web site of your competitors, and want to do this anonymously.
In addition, there are such bugs as cookies, and security holes are discovered in MSIE more and more ... In general, would you like to send someone else to travel on the WWW? The idea is sober, and quite easy to implement, and in several ways.
Method 1: Anonymizer
Such anonymous surfing is possible with the Anonymizer service. Go to their website ( http://www.anonymizer.com or http://www.iproxy.com ), type the desired URL, and go!
Following the link placed on the page that you are viewing using the Anonymizer, you get to the next page again through the Anonymizer, so the process is automated and you do not need to type a new URL again.
There were good times when Anonymizer went to the specified address immediately, but now for those who use this service for free, there is a 30-second waiting period. In addition, Anonymizer allowed using both HTTP and FTP resources. Now only registered users can use FTP.
When using this service, the anonymizer does not leave a trace in the log files, which excludes the possibility of collecting all the information about which it was written above. No cookies reach you.
Some sites, for example (for example, Hotmail), are not accessible through it, which, obviously, is explained by the desire of their owners to monitor visitors. Anonymizer also does not work with secure sites using the SSL protocol.
Anonymizer has two more nice features. Firstly, some WWW sites are inaccessible from one place, but accessible from another. Secondly, some sites give you information depending on where your request comes from
Method 2: Proxies
You can also anonymize your network trip using a proxy server. The proxy server works, in essence, as anonymizer, i.e. a document from the site "picks up" he, not you.
True, there are some important differences, namely:
- The proxy doesn’t save you from cookies (save yourself, make cookies.txt read-only or disable (Disable All Cookies, Disable Cookiese), their use in Internet Explorer 4.0 and that’s all!);
- the proxy server works with both HTTP and FTP, which makes it possible to anonymize visits to not only Web sites, but also FTP archives;
- IP address of your native proxy server, i.e. the one provided by your ISP still reflects the name of your domain, or at least its approximate geographical location.
The last point leads us to the following conclusion: if it is very important for you to remain anonymous when working with a site, or when reading and sending mail using a browser (i.e. the type of service offered by Hotmail), use not your proxy server, but a stranger.
Most proxy servers restrict access based on the IP address from which the call occurs. In other words, if you use the Demos provider, then the Glasnet proxy server will simply not let you in. But fortunately, you can always find a “good” proxy on the network, the owners of which either openly declare its availability to everyone (for example this one), or a proxy that for one reason or another does not restrict access only to its domain, which the general public not known for example:
To configure the browser in Netscape Navigator, go to Options => Network Preferences => Proxies => Manual Proxy Configuration => View and enter the specified values. In MS InternetExplorer is similar.
Having done this simple operation, you can surf the net, leaving a mark, for example, as a Bulgarian or American user, but ... there is one very important point.
Not all proxy servers are completely anonymous. Some of them allow the administrator of the site that you visit using the proxy to determine the IP address from which the proxy is accessed, i.e. your real IP address.
Check your proxy for complete or incomplete anonymity: http://www.tamos.com/bin/proxy.cgi If you get a message Proxy server is detected! - your proxy has a “hole”, and you will be given information about your real IP address, as well as about the IP address of the proxy server that you are using. If the message reads Proxy server is not detected - everything is in order! It is recommended to periodically (at least once a month) check those proxies with which you work for anonymity.
In conclusion, a few more considerations regarding the use of proxy servers. Working through a far-reaching proxy reduces data transfer speed and latency. In addition, the author does NOT recommend using the above proxy addresses, because if all readers start using them, then very soon the pleasure will end and access to them will be closed (if it is not already closed).
Find your proxy yourself, it’s easy. The author found these addresses in 5 minutes. In Altavista, type in keywords, something like c + Netscape, and you get a list of pages where providers tell their users how to configure their browsers to work with proxies.
try everything in a row, for the fifth or seventh time luck awaits you - the proxy will agree to work with you.
Method 3: Erase Cache
Most WWW clients save all the places on the Internet where you were in a special directory (cache).
For your safety, it is advisable to periodically (say either every day or once a week) erase the contents of the cache (it is better to use irreparable methods of erasing information, for example, using the Kremlin 2.1 program).
In Internet Explorer, it is located in the directory: \ Windows \ Temporary Internet Files \
Especially for paranoid
But different anonymizers can be built in chains!
Of course, it is impossible to access another proxy server through a proxy server so that it will come to you on some website, but through the proxy you can contact the Anonymizer.
And it’s possible through the Anonymizer again to the Anonymizer itself ... Wow, even the spirit is breathtaking from the abundance of combinations.
