Free Proxy Servers or Services

Hello,

I have a customer reporting a problem connecting to the internet and the problem could be related to him being under a proxy server. I don't have a proxy server to test with. So, I am checking to see if using a free proxy service would be ok for testing. I did an internet search on free proxy servers and came up with a bunch of results. I don't want to randomly choose one so I am asking the experts for three different choices for some good free proxy services to use for my testing.

Thanks in advance,

John

For testing purposes, you really need to use the one that your client uses.

That's not what I asked for. Which free proxy services do you recommend?

Proxify is usually a quick, easy, and simple one to use. But limited as its a FREE Service.
http://proxify.com/

Although, they do offer a Paid Service As well.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks for that link. Personally, I am not trying to bypass any web sites. For my testing purposes, I will need to enable proxy in my browser so that I can duplicate my computer the same way customers will have proxy installed.

Ah I see.
So these wont actually help you at all.


Have you just tried turning on the Windows Firewall to see if it behaves the same way?

Could be possible that your ISP offers a Proxy or Proxy Service that you can use.

Otherwise, as you said an Internet search would yield many possibilities.
However, none that i could recommend nor would I trust.
