Are the proxies selected by antifirewall ONLY the anonymous type?
(other tech support topics)
Q. Are the proxies selected by antifirewall ONLY the anonymous type. The one selected for me obviously was as I checked it in my browser. But are all proxies that antifirewall selects truly anonymous (not transparent, will not pass the IP address) or do I need to manually check each one??
A. The technology used by AF is different from the way the proxy is used by the browser. Indeed, some proxies used by AF may be non-anonymous when used in the HTTP mode. However, when used as tunnelling proxies, their connection data don't have any HTTP variables and therefore the proxies can't forward your IP to the destination server.
So, in other words, it is not an issue. From the point of view of AF, the question is whether the proxy works as a tunnelling proxy or not. If it works, the tunnel connection will be anonymous.Tech. Support Topics
