I'm doing it exactly as you guide us to, but every proxy I use is ok on proxy checker, but when I navigate to another page, every one is blocked by IP.... Am I doing something wrong?


I'm using Firefox by the way

What do you mean blocked by IP? Does the page load?


I was wondering, if you are in an Institution having it's own Wi-Fi connection and Local Connection, will proxy work ? Because years ago, I tried using torrent and it wont pass and also on Neopets, even the Key Quest doesn't work for me. It just stays in the loading area although the loading circle thingy already completed.

Your institution may block connections to a proxy. I know that for my school, it is literally impossible to connect to a proxy or vpn on their network, most likely due to the harsh regulations imposed on the network. However, give it a try: proxies may work in your particular institution.

Yup :unsure: can't use it here. Followed all the steps but when it comes to checking it manually, the pages won't load if I'm on proxy. Ah bummer, connection here is super fast ! such waste :p thank you @nitro that's a clear no no for multiple account for me.

The IP checker page loads, says "no proxy detected" and all, but then I navigate to another page and get "IP blocked by provider" or something to that effect.


I mean, on manual IP check it loads

The proxy might have been used by a spammer and the IP is now on the spam list :/

I followed the steps, found one that worked but when I tried to load any page (other than whatismyip) it came up ...

This webpage is not available

I have no idea what went wrong :unsure:

That's probably not a good proxy. It may only allow access to whatismyip.com so that it would pass proxy checkers. Idk, try and find another one?

I tried several and some would allow sites to load once or twice but then display the same message.

My best guess is that your proxies are dying really fast. Try using another free proxy database. I think my guide has a few suggestions.

I used a different site and found one that works, however, I can't get past step 1 for creating a new neo account.  :lol2:


Scratch that, 7th times a charm. Thank you! :D

No problem! Proxies are a pain to find if you don't want to pay for them :p

So I've noticed! Fortunately I had your help so it wasn't as bad as it would've been if I tried to figure it out on my own.  

I do have a (probably) stupid  and answered question though.

Can I log into my main account with a different browser than the one I'm using the proxy with - without jeopardizing my main?

People use different browsers and/or computers all the time, legit or not. You'll be fine :)

Thank you Nitro! This guide helped me a lot to understand proxies. Now that I have TTs, etc to secure in the future, I'll certainly be coming back to this. :)

Yeah :( You could clear your website data for whatsmyip to get rid of the restrictions, or you could just google another IP check site

never used proxies for cheating on neo, but they are useful for bypassing downloading restrictions.

 

 

Thanks, nitro!

I know this is a bit of an old post, but I only just stumbled across this - thank you for posting this advice!

 

Although I am not into cheating on Neopets, this would have been fab when I had forum troubles!

Thanks a ton! This worked flawlessly! I always thought this would be complicated but it wasn't. It was actually pretty far from it. Thanks for helping me understand. :)

I've tried at least a dozen from all three of the sites recommended, but every one of them gives me this message when I try to load anything except whatsmyip (also whatsmyip only shows me my home IP :( )

 

Unable to connect to the proxy server

ERR_PROXY_CONNECTION_FAILED

Did you go through the entire process outlined in my guide to filter out bad proxies?

I sure did! Copied them all over to the checker, and then kept trying the live ones listed as high anonymity in Switchy Sharp. Am I just having bad luck finding a good one?

It may be just bad luck. It's hard finding working proxies from free proxy sites.

If I was able to use the proxy on chrome, but there isn't a pop up when I test the proxy (on the programs), is it still safe?

So you clicked on text proxy, but a popup never appeared confirming that it works?
