Hi there,

for unblocking blocked YouTube Videos, I've found a guidance, that leads me to www.proxy-list.org. So here I've found an Adress/Port-Number of a working transparent proxy, which I had entered into the networkoptions of my firefoxbrowser, and erverything is working fine.

But one thing I don't understand; when I click at "Show my IP" at www.proxy-list.org, then theyi show me the ip-adress of the proxy and they show me my real ip-adress.

How does this work when I'm using a proxy, which is alleged to hide my real ip-adress?

What about the other websides? When www.proxy-list.org can find out my real ip-adress then surely other sides would be able to do that too?

Thank you very much for information.

KS.

Thanks for your question! First of all I will suggest you to read very short and easy to understand article about proxy types: What is an anonymous proxy server? Proxy types: transparent, anonymous or elite. If you want to get access to blocked web site and in addition hide your real IP address then you should use only anonymous or elite proxy servers.

To say long story short, the transparent proxy servers do not hide your IP, that's why they are called transparent. The same like you, many users may think that if proxy cannot hide your IP they are useless. The point is that ANY working proxy server could be used for getting access to blocked web site (youtube.com, facebook.com and many others). Also please take in an account that stable and fast transparent proxy could be found easier than the same quality anonymous or elite proxy. So what is the reason to use slower anonymous or elite proxy servers if you do NOT need to hide your IP and instead you only need to get access to blocked web site - youtube.com?

As simple as that. If you have any other question, please never hesitate to ask Wink
