Question about private proxies

8 posts in this topic

I've heard if your proxy port isn't 1080 that it's likely that it's being shared, is this true?

No, that's only because of how they're setup and while not being technically part of the infamous known 1024 port, 1080 is "generally" a widely accepted default. SOCKS proxies work at a lower ISO/OSI level than compared to HTTP so they're more versatile and definitely not limited to certain ports "by design" in and any or form. 

With that being said, many SOCKS proxy server program use 1080 as the default port. So many SOCKS proxies are using the port 1080, however there are many proxy server programs using different default port. For example, many proxy server programs use 8080 as the default port. 

You should know that proxy port absolutely depends on the settings of the proxy administrator. The proxy admin can set the SOCKS proxy running on any port at any time.

At VirtualBuddy we use a large number for the port for extra security because we know that brute forcing is a possibility, so too insure 100% security and private proxies, VirtualBuddy Premium Proxies use a firewall/whitelist system to filter out every single connection made, except that of the customer. This is a true variable of a private proxy.

The port is pretty irrelevant to the fact of if they're shared or private or not. Although picking a standard and default port is asking for it to get willingly attacked quite often. At ProxyFish, a lot of the ports are randomized depending on location(s).

You will more than likely have to take the provider at their word at they don't sell proxies to multiple people if they're claiming they're 'private'
