ProxyServerPrivacy basic proxy detector analyze HTTP request that your
browser (IE, Firefox, Opera, Netscape etc...) send to the website and try to find common proxy server
variables. Nowdays is easy to find open and free proxy server.
This basic free proxy detector can't detect any high anonomous proxy (so called Elite proxy or common name from ProxyJudge

Every time when you surf Web ( through
proxy server or not) your browser send information (HTTP request) and let web server know about what
kind of page, files etc... you want.

- Type of connection (keep-alive or close)
Typical proxy server HTTP variables are HTTP_VIA (most common),
PROXY_CONNECTION and X_FORWARDED_FOR.
(proxy that spill your real ip address. Level 5 proxy as defined by ProxyJudge script) add to HTTP header
variables that are unique to proxies and presence of X_FORWARDED_FOR variable
can determined your original ip address.
Anonymous proxy server
(Level 3 and Level 4 proxy as defined by ProxyJudge script) lack the X_FORWARDED_FOR. Your own ip address can not be determined
but presence of proxy variable tell the webserver that you use proxy.
Another common element that can identify user behind proxy server in most cases is the presence of connection type "close".
Elite proxy server
(High anonymosu proxy server. Level 1 and Level 2 proxy as defined by ProxyJudge script)
does not send any of proxy variables described afore and it is undectable with basic proxy detector.
