Question Title How to manage proxy traffic
It is recommended to use RETRIEVELISTOFALIVEPROXYES(in Setting under Security) to filter Ip address. Then you can decide if you want to block them or not. If you do not enable RetrieveListOfAliveProxyes, script never knows which IP addresses are proxy.

  • HOW TO MANAGE PROXY TRAFFIC?
    • BASIC PROXY FILTER (RECOMMENDED)
    • This is recommended solution for those who wish to manage proxy clicks.
      1. Enable RetrieveListOfAliveProxyes on settings under Security. This filters IP addresses by latest proxy databases which are updated by your cronjob. It does not block proxy by only enabling this. You must enable proxy filter to block them.
      2. Go to Proxy Blocker under Security and enable the service. (See screenshot )
      3. If you enable Security stats, you can see the number of clicks each user has sent.
    • REAL TIME PROXY FILTER
    • This is a real time proxy deduction filter. Therefore, it effects to script performance and server load. If you have thousands clicks with proxy based traffic, you should not use this option because it may lock your server by over load. This is a good proxy deduction system to those sites which has natural traffic with only a few proxy clicks to block. Since it is a real time deduction, this is not recommended for those high traffic sites to avoid server load.
      1. Enable DedectAliveProxy on setting of Security. This deducts the server of clicks each time in real time.
      2. Enable RetrieveListOfAliveProxyes on settings under Security. This filters IP addresses by latest proxy databases which are updated by your cronjob. It does not block proxy by only enabling this. You must enable proxy filter to block them.
      3. Go to Proxy Blocker under Security and enable the service. (See screenshot )
      4. If you enable Security stats, you can see the number of clicks each users has sent.
    • IP SECURITY ( RECOMMENDED)
    • This is the best recommended solution for those who wish to manage proxy clicks and build IP database. You can use IP security and ProxyFilter(basic) in parallel.
      1. Go to IP security under Security and enable the service. (See screenshot )
      2. Manage unclear hostnames on provider
      3. Read more instruction about IP security.

  • BLOCK/ACCEPT PROXY TRAFFIC
    • ACCEPT UNSECURE (PROXY/BOT) CLICKS TO CERTAIN FEED(S)
    • After you enable proxy filter and blocker, you have2 options to use the unsecure clicks(possible proxy or automated bot). You can assign unsecure traffic to preferred XML feed(s). This may be a perfect solution if you want to rely on feed’s decision without dropping clicks before sending.
    • SET DIFFERENT CREDIT % TO PROXY CLICKS
    • You can also set different credit percentage to those unsecure clicks if you accept them.
    • HOW TO ACCEPT UNSECURE TRAFFIC WITH LIMITED FEED?
      1. Set proxy credit percentage in UnSecureClickCreditPercent on Setting of Security.
      2. Enable allow proxy on setting of Security. (AllowUnSecureClicktoSearch (Local clicks), AllowUnSecureClicktoXml(XML clicks). Find them under security setting)
      3. Go to XML feed and click feed name you want to assign proxy clicks and select Yes to AllowUnSecureClicktoSearch (See screenshot ) . This means that non of proxy clicks counted if you do not assign any feed(s).

  • HOW TO FIND IF THE IP ADDRESSES IS PROXY?
    • GO TO PROXY BLOCKER UNDER SECURITY. You can find deducted proxy IP addresses and the counter of hits.
    • GO TO IP SECURITY. Click Proxy Deducted tab, You will find proxy IP addresses deducted by IP security.
    • CLICK IP ADDRESS ON CLICK LOGS. You can deduct in proxy stamp in real time.
    • CLICK TESTING/CLEAN OR BAD UNDER IPS ON CLICK LOG. It will re-test as IP security and update.
    • USE 3RD PARTY. There are many ways to check up if an IP address is proxy or not. Example: You can google an IP address and you may find the status.

  • IMPORTANT NOTES
    • JumboFeed script has a high accuracy in deducting proxies. However, it cannot be 100% guaranteed by various reasons. Example : when a search’s server does not response to script query, script may determined as proxy. But it can be a healthy server which had a temporary problem at the time. Or, script deduct as a healthy server if the proxy server response in unusual situation.
    • Fraud clicks are not generated by only proxy IP addresses. To set up a higher security level, you may combine security filters.
    • Proxy clicks do not only effect your traffic quality but also effect to your server loads. A proxy clicker commonly send hundreds and thousands clicks by setting up proxy IP addresses in automated click software in every minute. By having the large number of search query from proxies, your server could be over loaded even though the proxy search queries are not visible. If you do not enable proxy filter, Jumbofeed may not offer the best performance when there are large number of proxy access to the site.
