import proxy list - what am I doing wrong?

I am in options > submission > proxies > configure

I select Add >
import from file or import from clipboard. It makes no difference. I have tried all configs using a file or the clipboard: 
eg host:port:login:pass or login:pass@host:port

No matter what I do it imports the login:pass into the host column like so:

My data is correct. eg for login:pass@host:port


  • Do they pass the proxy test?
  • SvenSven
    the display format is always login:password@host no matter how the import format is.

    For some reason they pass bing and proxyjudge but they fail google tests and Most importantly when I run the SER using proxies I see 400 response in the logs. These are my proxies which I use all the time for other things so I know they work.
  • So, if they work then what exactly is your problem?
  • They don't work in GSA.
  • SvenSven
    Well actually they work, they are just blocked on google.
  • I am not crawling search engines but I get a tonne of 400 errors just trying to crawl my list. As soon as I turn off proxies it's fine, although I eventually start seeing my IP being banned.

    Oh wait, you have it added as WEB, try changing the type to CONNECT.
  • Looks like that was it. It tests fine on google, bing and proxyjudge but for some reason whatismyipaddress still fails. Thanks for the assistance guys.

    ignore it, they probably changed the site again or block you already.
