Proxy Tester is a proxy list tester and then it generates a wpad.dat file you can use for your browser based on working servers. wpad.dat file selects a random proxy server from the list of provided working proxy servers with each connection request.

Features

  • Take one or more plain text proxy server lists and test against them to see which ones work
  • Optional generate a wpad.dat file to select a random proxy for your browser for each request
  • Optional set a timeout for how quickly the proxy server responds. This ensures you get only the very best proxy servers.
  • Optional Multi-Threading can be turned on to process proxylists four times faster.
  • Optional download a plain text file through the proxy and test it against a local file to be sure the proxy truly works.
  • Optional incorporate an exclude list of proxies known to not work to avoid testing when testing a large proxy list.
  • Optionally simulate working proxies to generate wpad files, exclude lists, and more.
  • Command line help documentation is modeled after the built-in Windows command help documentation so System Administrators feel right at home.
  • Test a single or many proxy address instead of a file.

User Reviews

  • @richard-artes I think you missed the point of this proxy tester. It's to test large lists of anonymous/open proxies. It's not meant for a single proxy server requiring auth. FYI, it's best to try to ask support questions and bug reports using the facilities provided rather than writing a request (or bug report) in a review.

  • Thanks for Proxytest, it's perfect!

  • Unfortunately our proxy server requires username/password authentication, and there is no way to pass this to proxytester.exe: urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 407: Proxy Authentication Required ( Forefront TMG requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to the Web Proxy filter i s denied. )
