GSA SER and Capmonster

edited October 14 in Need Help

I am trying to figure out the best settings for GSA SER and Capmonster for solving Recaptcha. I am using Capmonster to emulate Rucaptcha, I've added RuCaptcha with IP and made all the proper settings.

Now, when I test the Recaptcha (from google api) I get "Server seems down", even though CapMonster receives the captcha and obtains the token.

On Captcha Stats in GSA SER, all threads are unsuccessful. I guess Capmonster doesn't return the sitekey to GSA?

What can I do?

    you can add it directly with CapMonster ... no need to emulate it.
  • I am trying to use the HttpRequest method, which is faster and seems to work better with proxies. So, I have to emulate a service.
    I still don't understand why GSA says "Server seems down".
  • SvenSven
    HttpRequest = ?
  • It's an additional method for solving recaptcha faster (and in my case, it works better than the Chrome or Firefox methods). Unfortunately, I can't give you more info.

    However, it's strange that GSA sends the test recaptcha to Capmonster (running as a service), Capmonster process it, but in the meantime GSA send backs "Server seems down". Do you have any idea why this happens?
  • SvenSven
    could be a timeout?

    Most likely, but they are running on the same machine, the setup is correct on both and Capmonster receives the test Recaptcha. Somewhere in the process of solving, GSA returns "Server seems down".

    Should I change some values on GSA? If "yes", where?
  • SvenSven
    not in GSA itself, but the ini file of the captcha service you use...there you have timeout values ... change them to something higher and restart SER.

    there are so many .ini files... can you please tell me the name or where I can find it?
    I do not have a captcha_services subfolder under Programs>GSA Ser

    Only Engines and Email_Engines

    captcha_services folder is correct, but it's located in...
    c:\users\<login>\appdata\roaming\gsa search engine ranker
  • I've played around with some values, but no matter what I put there (2captcha API with IP - recognized as Capmonster):

    [recaptcha_solve loop]

    GSA says, after exactly one minute, "Server seems down", while Capmonster is actively solving recaptchas.

    Did I modify the right values? Are they in seconds, milliseconds?

  • SvenSven
    hard to say really. Can you maybe provide access to that server?
  • I will gladly give you access. I've sent you a PM.
