Proxy Beast Screenshot

It happens every day. You’re just going about your business when you find out that a website that you could access yesterday is no longer reachable. It could be a result of a government action banning access on behalf of its citizens. It could be a new corporate filter. Or you might have said the wrong thing to the wrong person and now your own personal IP is blocked. Get around it with today’s discount software promotion, Proxy Beast!

Proxy Beast lets you quickly change your IP address to get around IP blocks and bans, scraping thousands of live feeds and presenting you with a neatly categorized list. With Proxy Beast, you have the option of filtering your proxy list by type, geolocation, and speed, giving you all of the information you need to regain connectivity at an even better quality. Need a transparent proxy, anonymous, or elite proxy? Proxy Beast helps you find one, quickly.

Stop using other proxy scrapers that do nothing to test the viability of proxy connections – they’re just a waste of your time! Instead, use Proxy Beast and benefit from automatic testing and verification of over 10,000 proxies in the blink of an eye, ready for export as a text file for your benefit!

Renaud Duval on your website the price written is $29. Then it is written somewhere else $67.50 instead of $97.
Could you tell me what price is correct please? thanks

Ryan Leverington The Price on the website is $67.50. The Original Price was $97, But was lowered months ago to the 67.50. You won't a better price than on BitsDuJour, Ever. Its the Lowest its going to get.

Ryan Leverington Software Note: You can use Scraped Proxy from ProxyBeast in pretty much any other software program that requires Working Proxies. E.g Scrapebox, Xrumer, Ubot, Market Samurai, WpRobot etc etc.

Its not a Proxy Switcher as such, but more of an extremely fast proxy scraper and verifier all in one. In which you can get proxies emailed to you at a set interval, Or saved to a text file etc. So you've always got Fresh, Working, Filtered Proxies for whatever your needs may be.

Ryan Leverington Ah, i see. Yes, that was from the v1 when first released, and was via the warrior forum at $29+. Your getting the latest version here, with more features, for literally half the price of that WSO offer.

Jerry S Ryan, just a few words of praise for you. It is refreshing to see a vendor here with such enthusiasm and who explains the nature of his product with such clarity. Excellent website, very informative video demo. I'm sold. (And for the skeptics, I've never heard of Ryan before. I'm just impressed with his presentation and demeanor. I just hope the product is as good as his pitch. :) )

Stefan Hauber Not too familiar with this proxy-issue, I some times ago installed TOR and had two issues with it:

1) Every time I land inside another country. I really would like e.g. to be able to define I want to be seen as being in the USA

2) After some (undefined) time it switches to another proxy, so it might be confusing for the resulting page, to identify you. E.g. when buying something it needs some time to enter your customer datas and if the proxy in the meantime changes, some security-mechanisms might fail and you are declined because of this.

Can ProxyBeast handle these issues in a better way?
Mar 9 2013 at 11:36pm Copy Link
Chris If this doesn't change your proxy then how do we change it as I have no idea. I do have 2 programs that automatically change my IP to other countries, etc.

I checked out your site and all I could do there is scroll down the main page. If I clicked the banner I got a popup asking me if I wanted to leave or stay. If I stayed it gave me a $10 off coupon code which is 99F63198

Then I clicked the banner again and got the popup again and I stayed again and got to a page to download a trial after I entered my name and email. I then clicked download and it went back to the main page and the download never started.
Mar 10 2013 at 1:06am Copy Link
Noggin The Nog I take it that this is a means of identifying proxies. Would you please clarify what use you can make of the proxies once you have identified them?
Mar 10 2013 at 7:48am Copy Link
Ryan Leverington @Stefan Hauber :TOR is its Own Browser, and Connects to Several 'Nodes' in order to Encrypt your Connection. Thats the whole point in the Tor Browser, and Proxies arent needed in that case. Sure you can use Proxy Beasts Proxies to connect, But it wont be anywhere near as Anonymous as the Tor Browser. After all, Tor is the Darknet.

@FruggyMan, Its the fastest Proxy Scraper and Verifier around. You can get literally Thousands of Geo-Targetted, Fast Proxies in seconds, all ready to export to text, emailed, or even FTP'd to your website. You can use these Proxies for changing your IP by just going to Firefoxs Options Advanced Network Settings Manual Config Enter the HTTP Proxy of your Choice thats exported from Proxy Beast, and Click Ok.

Further still, the Website works perfectly? Theres a big paypal button if a Regular customer was ordering, at the bottom of the sales pitch, and that takes you to http://www.members.proxyb...gnup/index

The Discount Code is for $10 of the 65.50 when a Visitor Tries to Close the WIndow, This is known as Traffic Saving via a Downsell. But thats the Most we offer off. As said, BitsDuJour is the Only one to have this exclusive extremely low pricing.

The Demo Should have been Emailed to you, Check your Spam Box. If for some reason you havent received it, Just Click 'Download Trial' on the BitsDuJour Page.

@Noggin the Nog: As explained above, this Scrapes Thousands and Verifies Thousands in Seconds. There are many uses for the exported proxies, e.g Starting your own Proxy service/website, Selling them via Fiverr, Forums and Other Places, Changing your Own IP, Or for Software, Plugins and Other Tools that Require Proxies to Run [E.g Scrapebox, WP Robot, Xrumer Etc etc]

Thanks for your Questions guys. Hope this cleared up a few things.
TheLeviathan - Mar 10 2013 at 10:51am Copy Link
Jerry S Noggin Nog, there are many reasons to use proxies, the foremost probably being the right to remain anonymous. There are many instances where a person wants to keep their identity hidden, such as (in the United States) whisteblowers, engaging in criticism of the government, not being tracked by overly-intrusive or dishonest website operators and so forth. In the United States this right is protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. In many other nations or when communicating with those in such nations (like China, Cuba and all too many others), you want to use proxies to hide yourself from governments that permit no freedom of expression. There are numerous other legitimate uses as well.

Can proxies be misused in the sense of violating laws? Sure. But automobiles, for example, can be used in the commission of crimes as well - but no one complains about them being offered for sale.

I, for one, am looking forward to this product and hope it delivers on its promises.

Glenda Keeler I'm using the trial version so far, and even as a proxy newbie, I love this and can't WAIT to buy the full version!!!
Mar 10 2013 at 10:32pm Copy Link
Ryan Leverington @Glenda, The Demo Version is actually an Earlier version. The New version, thats on sale here, has MANY more features, including Faster Scraping, Faster Verification, Scheduling, Export to FTP, Email etc.

So you could literally leave in running in the background 24/7, Scraping and verifying e.g 500 Proxies every hour, and then Email them to you, OR even upload them to your website.

It all should be pretty straight forwards Eitherway, But Any help needed/questions etc, Just submit a ticket to and We'll get back to you asap. [NOTE: First come first served Basis]

Yfor I bought the software but all I got in return was a PayPal receipt by email and a link to Cash Legion (whatever that is) that will not recognize the user/password I just entered. What does Cash Legion has to do with Proxybeast? Regardless of your answer, how do you expect people to understand those things when searching the knowledgebase in that "support" site for "Proxybeast" doesn't return a single result? And most importantly, where (and when) do I get the license for the software I just bought?

Devvie Nuis Hello, I am also curious to this program.

Price is excellent, but..

1. How long are you guys around? And how many are working on this product? Eg., won't you just disappear after a year? :)
2. The license, is it a lifetime license??
3. Does it only show proxies or can it connect for me too??? For that would be awesome and an instant-buy argument!

ProxyAddict Bought the tool, ran it for 15 minutes, got about 11k proxies. Upon checking, only got 70 live proxies, the results did not even check for the types of proxy. The tool stopped working even though there are 10 more proxies to check. Anyway the quality of the scraped proxies did not really work at all. I ran it a few more times, the same time happens, it just would not check the proxy types and I am getting only about 1% live proxies. Anyone else getting such results?

Feeling very disappointed right now. :(
Mar 11 2013 at 9:07am Copy Link
Michael R. Thanks for the quick answer.

Another thing, what's a little odd is, that the S/N is asked for every time PB is starting. OK, checking 'Remember me' remembers it, but why this field opens up every time nevertheless. I'm wondering why anyone should want to change the S/N after having entered it the first time...

S B If I understand correctly, and please correct me, proxies
1) do mask the IP address from the browsed web site
2) do not encrypt traffic through the ISP
3) do allow access to web sites as if coming from other countries or locations
4) do not mask the "browser/font/etc. fingerprint" which can almost uniquely identify many users.

I suppose that availability, latency, and bandwidth through a proxy are three of the most important proxy characteristics.

Are there guidelines for choosing proxies?

Is there a good way to check the "quality" of a proxy?

Chris OK, I purchased this and have a few questions now since they all weren't answered in my original question.

Now that I have the program, how can I use the proxies that it finds? I don't use Firefox, only Chrome.

Also, I have done a 500 URL scrape 3 times and the first time it found 2 good URLs, 2nd time it found none, and 3rd time it found 17 live, but most were poor speed. Do I need to scrape more, like 5000?

Next, I noticed that it never checks all of the URLs that it finds. The first 2 times it never checked the last 2 and the third time it isn't checking the last 3. I do have to click stop checking in order to do anything else.

And, how do we check for updates? Do we get an email from you or does the program have it hid somewhere?

Also, why is the program portable and not installable?

Mar 11 2013 at 11:50am Copy Link
Chris Roy Jackson I have downloaded the TRIAL Version. Upon Execution I discovered that I was NOT installing, but that the program is running.
SO... I amsearching ... so far there are over 37,000 Proxies found.
I originally thought that this program searched for And USED available Proxy servers.
After seeing this "Demo" version in action it LOOKS like it simply Locates (and Checks the specified characteristics of) Proxy Servers that are openly available without required Logins.
It ALSO appears that!!! Is that correct ???

IF "Proxy Beast" is NOT a "Proxy Client", that would be my suggestion for an upcoming version: that you inlude the function of a Proxy Client capable of USING the lists generated by the "Scraping" portion of the program. ALSO, As an enhancement to that functionality, i suggest that it have the capability of Rotating through the Servers listed in a specified list according to user specified time frequency and schedule.
An added benefit would be the capability to load (pre-set) configurations (from a "config file") "on-the-fly".

I see that you think that "But we feel its now perfect"--but, knowing Windows, I'm sure that bugs will eventually appear. I have no need for anonymity, but I'm thinking that, you never know, and it is cheaper than the monthly rentals. Is this something that's obvious how to use for someone who's never used such things?

Louis H FruggyMan.....

For Chrome.... (V25)
(Win 7)

You have to set your system wide settings via your Windows Internet settings in order to use a proxy with Chrome.

Access your Chrome Settings screen and click on "Show Advanced Settings." (For V25 this is accessed through the list via the 3 lines icon on the far right upper corner)

Then click on "Change Proxy Settings" button under the Network section.

This will bring up the Connections settings for Windows.

Click on the "LAN Settings"

Check the box under Proxy server and enter the proxy info.

Click "OK"

Click "OK"

And then you should be good to go.

Chrome does not have an easier way to enter the proxy, like Firefox does, and so you have to enter the proxy via Windows main Internet settings.

Hope this helps.

P.S. You can modify advanced proxy settings by clicking the “Advanced” button in the LAN Settings window. The advanced settings dialog allows you to specify different proxy servers for different Web protocols or add exceptions, sites for which your system bypasses the proxy.

George Butel Wow. I never got this before. Chrome says that the zip file "is not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous," and the default setting on the file in the download bar was "discard." You have to be proactive to try and get the file. My normally overprotective Norton, however, did not give a peep, and Norton's "Insight Scan" gave it the okay. Uploading the zip file to one of the online antivirus scanners, Clamav, gave this: "Possibly Unwanted Application. While not necessarily malicious, the scanned file presents certain characteristics which depending on the user policies and environment may or may not represent a threat."
You might consider letting your customers know that the installer might be regarded by some programs as ~iffy.
I forgot to ask: I do regular reinstalls of Windows from scratch, on the same machine, though. Am I going to have a problem re-activating the program on a fresh install?

Ryan Leverington Why are some of you proposing that were fraudulent? And supply software that contains malware etc?

This is NOT the case, EVER.

Not only do we code everything 100% Unique, Test it, and Provide thousands with the software, but BitsDuJour have also tested it. Without any fault, or Malware, Spyware etc.

Anti-Virus', Malware Scanners etc, Almost Always bring up false positives, Or software they've never seen before. This is very common.

Trust me when i say, All our software is 100% safe.

Finally @ George, If you keep reinstalling, you will have a problem, as this is locked to the hardware ID, etc. Id suggest installing it on a Computer you use regularly, without interuption.

George Butel If your program looks for a hardware ID, then there should be no problem. Sony's programs do the same thing (Sound Forge and Vegas), and I have no problem reinstalling them, since they "know" (or Sony's servers "know") that it's the same machine. I'm thinking, though, that I should probably disconnect all my external devices whenever I install a program like that, though, which I had never thought about before. If I have, say, my Hitachi HDD attached when I install, and then a different HDD attached, will the hardware ID be different, or do the external devices not affect the hardware ID?
Mar 11 2013 at 7:55pm Copy Link
Louis H Ryan... I did not take George's post to suggest your program WAS a problem. I read his post as letting you know that SOME programs might give a false positive.

Perhaps you are tired and frustrated with people who are suggesting that you might be trying to scam them because they have, for whatever reason, continued to have problems getting the program up and running?

I cannot speak to the problems some folks are having, but I can repeat that I had absolutely NO problems getting my serial number, and the full program up and running very quickly.... and the instructions were very clear as to what I needed to do.

Glenda.... would you be willing to share step by step what you have tried to do in order to get the full copy of the program and your serial number? I would be happy to step through the complete process I followed in order to get things up and running for me. (I have no connection to the vendor, simply offering any assistance I might be. I know how frustrating it can be to feel you are getting nowhere with your efforts. So maybe a third party with no horse in the race might be of help? At minimum it could serve as an independent observer that you have followed all the steps you were given to follow.)

Ryan Leverington @Glenda, I Replied to your ticket. What you asked was in the User Guide. Its very simple, and contains detailed instructions as well as screenshots. I dont want you to get Upset, Would you prefer a Refund? Im not sure what else i can do.

@Louis : Sorry if anyone was offended, and took it to heart. I pride my self on being 100% Professional, But after 24 hours+ without sleep, i do get a little cranky haha.

I can't just keep saying the same thing via the comments, its all in the user manual. Many People have Ignored it, Yet others who read it have been able to set it up within 5 minutes.

Louis H @Glenda...... If you would prefer receiving my offer of assistance via email, give me permission to contact you via a PM on Facebook and I will send you my email address. Just wanted to offer another option.

Ryan... I, too, can be very cranky when I do not get adequate sleep. (sometimes I am quite cranky WITH sleep!) Thank you for being present here throughout the day during the promotion.

Glenda Keeler @Ryan, no, I don''t want a refund, I want this program to work. I have gone through the manual, and the pictures and instructions in the manual do NOT match my program! I'm missing things in the program, I don't know why! I'm not having trouble following, they just don't match!!!
@Louis H, thank you for the offer! I will be happy to accept any help you might be able to give! I will try to pm you from FB, I just hope I can find your profile there! Thank you!
I want this program to work for me!

Chris Roy Jackson Can you please provide a link to the "User's Manual" ????
I THOUGHT that I had seen it above, but I cannot find it and My Questions (above) have STILL NOT been responded to !!!
SOME of us would rather make an informed decision (based upon Information given and the trial [DEMO] version) before purchase rather than needing to get a refund afterward because the software was not what we thought it would be...
Better for You AND us.!!!

Chris Roy Jackson @ Glenda
Are you using the "Demo" versiuon ??? Or did you download the "Current Version" (which Link [I assume] should have been emailed to you with your Serial # info after Purchase) ???
As I understand (I cannot say from experience, because I have NOT YET Purchased) the DEMO is a Limited AND OLDER Version of the Program !!! I don't think the "User Manual" Would match it !! I would THINLK that the "User Manual" would match the "Current Version" !!!
I hope that helps !!
Mar 11 2013 at 11:53pm Copy Link
Glenda Keeler @Chris, of course I'm using the new version, the one I was e-mailed. But I am wondering if me having the demo still installed is interfering with something. I haven't used the demo since I installed the current one, but it might make a difference. But the manual and my program pictures don't match at all! I sent screen shots of both to the support page.

@Luis H again, yes, you have my permission to contact me on FB. I tried to find you, but couldn't. I really need some help with this, thank you! I have screen shots and everything.

@Ryan, I sent 2 more posts to the legion support site, with screen shots, so you can see what I'm talking about, and that I'm not crazy, lol!

R Master Disappointed with sign up problems for this software. I tried twice to buy this, got a screen with a logo and a discount code and nothing else - no link or button to click or instructions how to proceed. Had to go pick someone up and tried again when I got back, using different browser - this time it worked but now no discount - since just a few minutes after midnight! PayPal is such a mess I stopped using them years ago, now this is another example of how poor their gateway is- now lost a sale :(

Chris Roy Jackson @Glenda Keeler:

Your having the demo still installed should NOT interfere (or make a difference) since it was NOT ACTUALLY Installed, just run from a directory on your Hard Drive (therefore NO Registry Entries). Only ONE Possible way that it MAY affect is if there is some remnant of the Demo in MEMORY !!! If you have re-booted your computer after "running" the demo, that should NOT be an issue.
I have just purchased and will be running the Current version after I finish these posts and Install it. I'll let you know what My Experience is in about an hour (by 6:45 am [or so] Eastern Time).

@R Master:

What Browser are you using (IE 9, or whatever)??
Do you tend to "right-Click) on the "Buy" button and select to open in a new Tab (or Window) ???
I'm using IE9 and I typically (tend to "right-Click) on the "Buy" button and select to open in a new Tab... When I did on THIS offer, I saw the same result that you are describing. When I "Clicked" ("left-Click) on the button it popped up a "Shadow 'pop-up' Window that had a discount code and the appropriate continue Link (or button [I don't remember]) to take me through the order process.

I made my Payment here (Again) by PayPal without ANY Trouble.

To ALL who may NOT be aware, if you "surf" using a "Proxy", you MUST exclude * from going through the Proxy. It is against their "Terms & Conditions" to access their site Through a Proxy.
FYI: The ONLY Times that I EVER had a problem using PayPal (other than when their was a problem on my computer) was using a Proxy... I kept getting temporarily suspended, and then I would have to "jump through a few Hoops" in order to resume "normal account operations".

To ALL who may NOT be aware, the Times for The Bits Deals is from 12:01 am to Midnight evry Day (PACIFIC Time)!!!

Louis H Glenda....

I sent a PM to your "other" mailbox on Facebook. You can access your "Other" PM mailbox by going to your messages and selecting the "Other" link at the top - right next to the "Inbox" link. This is FB's way of filtering out what might be spam. If a PM coomes form someone who is not yet listed as one of your friends, FB charges a $1 to send a PM to you, or you can have it sent to the "Other" inbox.

Any questions... let me know.

I'll be offline a while this morning as I need to do some actual work (or at least the paper work for my actual work - I am a home health RN.) I will check back later today to see how I might be of assistance. As Chris mentions above, the demo folder should not usually be a problem, but there may indeed be something hanging out in memory, or your registry, so I would suggest going ahead and deleting that folder to see if it makes any difference. I deleted the demo folder on my machine before running the full program. fwiw.

ProxyAddict Hi Ryan, please attend to my support ticket #277 when you have time. I logged it some 11 hours ago. I am not happy with the quality of the little amount of proxy listing I am getting so far.
Mar 12 2013 at 8:44am Copy Link
Mr Macro Hi Ryan, the fine print states "Each license allows installation on a single computer and a laptop, but Proxy Beast may not be used at exactly the same time on each of them."

But when I try to run the software on my laptop (where it is actually required) I get the following error "serial is registered to other computer or banned. Please contact support if you think this is error".

When I try to open up a support call, it jumps to a site called Ca$hLegion - is this correct? Should I register on this site and open a support request. There is nothing listed in the knowledge base and no references to the Proxy Beast website or product.
Mar 12 2013 at 10:58am Copy Link
Glenda Keeler @Chris, I've rebooted and cleaned my registry, which I do every day, and have removed the demo, so that's not the problem.

@Ryan, is it possible the download I got is somehow corrupt, and can I download it again, and have my license still work?

@Louis, I'll be on FB in a few mins and will check my messages, thanks!
Mar 12 2013 at 3:02pm Copy Link
ProxyAddict Hi Ryan, I just raised a ticket requesting for a refund. This tool is not what I expected it to be. Kindly revoke my license after the refund.

Louis H @ProxyAddict....

I cannot speak to the "customer support" issues, as I have nothing to do with the vendor. What I would like to now, however, is what are the actual problems you are having with the software itself?

What were you expecting it to be and/or do for you?

It would helpful for others if you could be a bit clearer in describing your concerns with the program as this may come up again in the future for another discount and folks who might not check out other sites might be able to benefit from understanding what your actual concerns about the program are/were.

ProxyAddict Hi Louis,

After watching the demo video, I was sold on the idea that we can have a good amount of live proxy to work on just by using tool. Well, after trying for a good number of times, all I got was very little amount of live proxies. I logged a support and the only reply I got was as below:


If you just run through the User manual, it will show you how to add more sources. This can dramatically increase the number of proxies found that are working.


If I am expected to crawl and source for our own proxy source, then I would have been better off using Scrapebox which scrape and test proxies without getting the user involved. IMO, this is obviously a case of what you see is NOT what you get. Anyway Ryan has not been responding to this thread or support ticket for a week now which prompted me to file a dispute with Paypal.

I hope you have had better experience with this tool so far.

Chris Roy Jackson @ Louis H, @ ProxyAddict & @ Ryan

Can any fo you tell me what the prpose is of the file ( proxytype.php ) uploaded to my Web Host ???
I just posted a support ticket requesting that information (which is NOT included in the very limited "User Guide"), but based upon what you have been saying, I am NOT optomistic about receiving a reply anytime soon.
Any info that you can offer would be appreciated! I have "viewed" the file, but since I am NOT a "PHP" Coder, I have very little understanding of its meaning.
Mar 20 2013 at 8:45am Copy Link
Louis H Thanks ProxyAddict for the info.

My final verdict is still in process of being determined.

My own experience is that some days I get a larger quantity of results than others, but there is currently no rhyme or reason as to why, at least that I have been able to discern.

It is my opinion, by the way, that it is definitely not worth full price for what it has produced in terms of live proxies.

And I am hearing that other folks who do have questions are getting the same type of standard response from the vendor...'read the manual.'

Well... unless the manual has been revised in the past week, the manual you get with the product is for a different version. The images are NOT the same as the product I downloaded. Glenda K can attest to that as well. And it does NOT cover/explain all of the features of the version I downloaded after purchase.

I try to give a vendor the benefit of the doubt, but I am leaning more towards this particular vendor being one who is not willing/able to take the time, for whatever reasons, to help interpret the manual/program for those who are having trouble with it... or who need a bit more specific info than the very basic manual provides.

While I make no comment/judgement on the vendor as an individual, outside of his role as vendor, such a repeated response (or lack thereof) to customers with concerns does not make good business sense. Nor does it lend itself to a favorable view of the vendor as a vendor.

Glenda Keeler I will also be filing a dispute with payPal over this WORTHLESS program! @Louis H, I know you helped me with this program, but even after the help, this lame program doesn't even work! It won't scrape a single proxy, and does ablsolutely NOTHING! I got NO help from Ryan at support, all he said was read the manual, and has not replied to any more of my support requests since! Anyone else, DO NOT buy this program, you will be getting ripped off!!! I may also go to the Better Business bureau, and whoever else necessary over this POS and its owner/seller!!! And Ryan, I have saved and documented EVERYTHING, so no bother trying to delete this comment! From one very angry and cheated consumer!!!
Mar 20 2013 at 1:28pm Copy Link
Louis H It is depressing that the vendor has not demonstrated a willingness to take time to go beyond telling folks to "read the manual." It is my understanding that the program, according to some, works as advertised, but it may require a level of skill that some may not have at their ready access. A simple step by step process, which currently is not provided anywhere online that I have been able to find, might be very beneficial.

I went ahead and purchased the program as I intend to expand my understanding of using proxies... right now, however, a few things have arisen that require I put off such learning, otherwise I would do my best to help others figure out the parts of this that are not intuitive for those of us with questions.

Is there anyone reading these comments who would be willing to more fully explain how to set up the php file with a webhost? That is the piece that seems to perhaps be causing some of the problems folks are having..... and to continually have the vendor tell people to read a manual that is not all that helpful beyond the very basic steps of setting the program up is not going to get those questions answered.

Mar 20 2013 at 3:32pm Copy Link
Glenda Keeler @Louis H......I can ASSURE you, my skill level is just fine, thank you! My demo scraped the proxies with NO problem, however, being it was a demo, I was not able to use them. I AM using this program I bought properly, it simply is NOT working!!! And I refuse to use this stupid program any more, and other than getting my money back, I will not deal with this vendor ever again!!! I HOPE I do not have to take this issue with the vendor any farther than I have to, but WILL take it as far necessary as I need to go, on principle alone! It makes me VERY angry to be ripped off!!!! I HOPE I have made myself VERY clear!!!

ProxyAddict Folks, please note that you only have 45 days to file a dispute from the day of purchase according to Paypal policy. After which you can forget about getting a single cent back.

@Louis H, there are many ways to learn more about proxy and if you are really keen to use programs that works, try Scrapebox or HMA (Hide My Ass). I have tried both and I am very happy with both product. I bought ProxyBeast tool because of the discount so that I can pass it to my son but too bad the support for the tool is disappointing.

Louis H I did not mean to insinuate anything about your skill level, Glenda. And I apologize if I came across as suggesting that. Poor choice of wording on my part.

Could you help me figure out how to set up the php file with a webhost? It would be appreciated. My skill level does not include a very good working knowledge of such things and I would like to see what difference, if any, it will make in the results that I am getting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Mar 20 2013 at 4:28pm Copy Link
Chris Roy Jackson I may ALSO be filing a dispute with PayPal if the Vendor does NOT reply with a satisfactory reply to my "Help Ticket"!
I'm NOT sure why some have said that the User Guide is not for the version that they have downloaded, UNLESS they are confusing the screen shots of the WebHost's cPanel (in steps 7 - 11) with part of "Proxy Beast"! That would be easy to do since the Vendor does NOT really TELL you this in the Manual!!! The "File Manager" it is showing would be in your "cPanel" in your Hosting account (NOT on your computer)!
Regarding the "php file", I was willing to try installing it ONLY if I know what the purpose of the file is !!! I do NOT want to create an "OPen Relay" or "un-secured Proxy" on MY WebHost and thereby compromise the integrity of my Website's IP !!!
Do any of you know "php coding"?? Can you tell me the purpose of having the file on your website ?? Viewing the text of the file I could NOT determine its purpose. THAT is the FIRST question I am asking of the Vendor.
The Second question will be why do NONE of the found "proxies" (proxy Servers ???) list what TYPE they are (as advertized)???
Mar 20 2013 at 5:51pm Copy Link
Ryan Leverington Right, sorry for the delay people, ive been away.

The Purpose for the PHP file uploaded is to determine the Proxy TYPE. This is done via your own hosting, as its MUCH Faster than have Billions of requests to e.g a central server. This would cost much much more, to even be able to handle requests.

Secondly, Ive replied to most tickets personally. Any threats, or Bad Language will NOT be dealt with. Play Nice, or we Wont.

Most of it IS Outlined in the manual, thats why we created it. No need for me to repeat my self ten times, because e.g one or two people can't figure out to click the 'settings' tab at the bottom of the software. . Yet claim they have technical knowledge.

TheLeviathan - Mar 20 2013 at 6:26pm Copy Link
Ryan Leverington NOTE: Thousands are happy with the software and got it to work. Less than 0.5% have difficulty.

NOTE: Threats, Bad Language, Disrespect and Other Anti-Social Behaviour will NOT be tolerated, Nor replied to.

NOTE: Everything you need is in the Manual. Its very simple. Why have 100 pages of BS?

Chris Roy Jackson To RYAN and all others monitoring this Thread:

I could file a Support ticket (and will if this is not responded to here) regarding what I'm about to "say", however, given the level of tension expressed by some of the OTHER purchasers, I thought that perhaps Ryan can help people relax by addressing the issues which I am about to discuss:

Okay, folks,
Did anyone else get a response to their support ticket(s)???
Ryan said that he's been "away"... THINK about it!!! Life Happens... It's ONLY been 9 days!
He may have had a family emergency, vacation plans, etc., etc.
I (for one) am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and see how he handles things over the next week (or so)!
He DID just answer my ticket, and I am now willing to upload the file to my server to see if my results will improve.

However, (Tip for Ryan:) I DO think that Ryan assumes too much in the Product Description above! It implies that ALL you have to do is use this software and you can quickly change your IP address ("Proxy Beast lets you quickly change your IP address...."). If I understand the functionality of the software correctly, it does NOT do that, but rather it simply finds the "IP Addresses" and/or) "URLs" of "Open Web Proxy Servers" available on the Internet!
In order for you to USE this information, you still have to have a "Proxy Client" installed on your computer and set up to CONNECT with the "Proxy Server(s)" that you wish to use. If these statements are correct, that information should be given in the description.

Also Ryan, your User manual could be a little clearer (on page 4) regarding uploading the file to Webhost by STATING that the picture shown there is actually a screenshot from inside their cPanel on the WebHost Server.

Ryan, If anything that I have said here is incorrect, PLEASE correct me so that the confusion can be eliminated. I think that many of the 99.5% of your customers fall into the groups of people that don't install the product and/or don't bother to complain (thinking that someone else they know will explain later what it is that they don't understand). If you add to your manual as people bring new questions to your attention, there will be fewer & fewer questions for people to raise (provided, of course, that they bother to read the Manual).

I hope that this was helpful to everyone concerned. I will continue to monitor this thread and I will post again in the next 24 - 72 hours after I have had a chance to upload the file and see what results I achieve.

LU Hello Chris.

I have been testing and using Proxy Beast now and it does an adequate job in my opinion.

Folks, there are better programs available and there are worse ones as well. Remember, there is no silver bullet program out there. No one single program does everything. As stated above, you have some time to request a refund, but take your time and try everything out first.

As I am using this software once in a while, there is no need for me to have a huge list of Proxies. I only need one at a time and the software gives me more than that at a single time.

I invested in this software, because of the price and because of the lifetime upgrades. The software is being actively developed and in time, has the potential to be one of the best.

FYI, I am not affiliated with this software in any way, at the time of this writing. I just think it is pretty decent, and sometimes we need to take a few step back, collect ourselves, and move on.

By the way, I think anyone can use Firefox browser to put the new IP address in. Not sure if this is accurate, but you can navigate to Firefox "Options", "Advanced", "Network", and on that tab, click "Settings". Choose "Manual proxy configuration" and enter the Proxy IP. Again, not sure if this will absolutely work.

Hope this helps at least one person.

Glenda Keeler @Ryan, I have not even ONCE used bad language, I am just tired of being ripped off!!! And to even SUGGEST what's wrong with the program is I don't know how to use it is unconscionable!!! It is simple: When I click to scrape proxies, it does NOTHING, NADA, and I just want my money back!!!!!!!!!! I am also upset I had $250 stolen from me from a irreputable company, so excuse me if I came off angry, I AM angry!!! Just PLEASE give me my money back, and be DONE with it??? I do NOT want to go to court over a stupid, small charge, but I will if I have to, on principle alone, I hope you understand that! I will also take to the airwaves about this! Just give me a refund promptly, and this problem goes AWAY! And you will not hear from me again! Thank you!!!
Mar 20 2013 at 9:23pm Copy Link
Chris Roy Jackson Okay, I admit that I have been used to using a "Proxy Client" (I am right NOW) with a Anonomous Service Provider using " " and a specific Port in order to access my "Proxy Client" (and therby the "Proxy Server").
In Internet Explorer, It's under Internet Opotions - Connections - Lan Settings - then "check" the box under "Proxy Server" and fill in the "Proxy Server" Information.

I had never thought about the possibility of accessing a "Proxy Server" DIRECTLY by inserting the Server's Address in IE's LAN Settings.

Louis H I was looking for additional third party/independent reviews of Proxy Beast., as well as other such program, and I found this bit of offered info to consider about any such scrapper type program......(Anyone out there with a solid understanding of proxies...can you confirm this to be true?)


"Originally Posted by proxygo

ive said this a thousand times so here goes for 1001

no matter what tool you buy such as
proxy beast - proxy goblin - proxy grabber - fpl -

they all do the same thing, sure they look different but under the hood. they all collect already posted proxies from sites.
this is why they have a short life span because everyone regardless of which tool you own , your all scraping the same proxies and sharing the same proxies, thats why they get abused and died fast .

if your happy with that, just pick 1 and go but dont expect 1000+ elite proxies. that wont happen because as fast as you get your proxies, hundreds if not thousands of others are doing the same thing .."

This makes a lot of sense to me and would clearly explain why folks are reporting far fewer than 1000+ live proxies. It would also explain why there are times when I end up with more live links than others. It would make sense that depending on what time of day, and where in the queue of everyone scraping you stand, your results will vary.

P.S. I am certainly learning more about proxies.... ;-)
