One of our indian employee is having hard time accessing a website. When he loggs in he gets a server error message, in usa we are not getting this message. So I think this company is blocking outside USA traffic. how can we allow our employee to access the site? use proxy? I dont mind paying if we get quality service

Yes, if money is not a problem you could setup a dedicated server and run your own proxy on it.  That would allow you to get the speed you want.  Most proxy sites, if not all, are hammered a lot.  Spammers and scammers use them.

There are only a few data centers that allow proxy dedicated servers to be setup.  Most do not because proxy's equal scams usually and if the data center sees a proxy theyusually freak out. We operate one of them but unfortunately I am forbidden from posting advertising here, so I do not want to break the rules to post any of my URL's..  I think you can "ask" in the channel here to allow posting. There are a few users which actually do exactly what you do, and one of them designs them for a living, it works from experience.

Regardless though, the overall answer is to setup a proxy dedicated server and have them use that to access.  They will avoid the slowness that you are speaking of from any public proxy service.

you can set up your own proxy server...follow these steps...(I too have a proxy setup this way to access all the sites from my office, as my office firewall blocks anything thats not required or seems to be waste of time)

1) get a domain name
2) purchase a linux based web hosting [with dedicated IP address - if you need to access https links]
3) upload a web server certificate from the cPanel
4) Upload the PHP Proxy in the scgi-bin folder and set the security permissions on the folder....


I use the latest version which happens to beta...but works fine...

Yes, isn't that what I just said, minus the advertising?
