I have list of HTTP/HTTPS/Socks proxy servers like this:  

I need to test each server if it works and if it is anonymous or not. I plan to put these servers to my webbrowser proxy settings.

When i was preparing to answer, i found this:

Proxy Tester and WPAD Generator

It basically do what i want to do. It tests lists of proxies for anonymity. So i guess the question now is, are there other similar apps which would be better than this app? Thanks again

  • For each kind of proxies (http, https, socks), define first a manual test procedure (by changing the settings of your own browser). Once done, tell us your procedure and we may help you make this automatic with tools like wget or curl – xhienne Jan 18 '17 at 11:43


cat proxylist | parallel --tag curl --proxy {} -o /dev/null --silent --head --write-out  '%{http_code}' http://www.fsf.org/ --max-time 5

Should give:

proxy:port    200

if the proxy works.
