Is there a limit to total number of CAPTCHA tries? Is same proxy used for all tries?

I know some systems have a limit and will lock out a user after x CAPTCHA fails.

But...I also know that this might only affect things if one proxy is used for consecutive solve attempts on fails. Which way does SER handle consecutive solve attempts: same proxy or different?

AND, if same proxy is used, what's the highest number of total tries suggested?  I have used various external solvers, and even the ones at the end of the list seem to get used, so it seems having a high number of tries does work.

    SER will use a different proxy if it decides to retry a certain submission step.

    Thanks, Sven.  I've been wondering about this for literally years. It's good to finally have asked! :)

    Will all sites reload a different captcha each time you retry ??

    If it does not and load the same captcha then you will have 2 different settings as fasr as i see it = 

    Setting 1  : machine solving like GSA CB, Xevil, ETC  === 0 retries  because if it could not solve it the first time it definitely not going to solve the same thing the 2nd or 3rd time.

    Setting 2 : human solvers like 2 Captchas and other  === maybe 1 - 2 retries

    no, not all...some will e.g. only generate a new captcha once every 10 minutes or so.
