First i want to thank all of you for the information that is posted on here, i have learned so much and you guys are great. I have went over OTW article on proxychains a couple of times, and i still just cant seem to get them to work. I was hoping for some advise. Basically everytime proxychain trys to setup a chain it times out, it doesnt matter if the conf file is set for random,strict or dynamic. I have about 15 different ip addresses with port numbers in the conf file, is that enough? Is it timing out because the ip's are bad if so where is a good place to find usable anonymous socks proxies? for the record i have been pulling them off of here http://www.socks-proxy.net/ Thanks for any help and i apologize if i have not provided enough info.
