    Guide to Proxies for Firefox and Tor

    Proxies are not hard. I've found most guides to be rather dense and complex; so here's a quick one.

    First of all, you will need firefox. It is the only browser that I know of that supports proxies EASILY. Yes, technically you can create proxies in Chrome or IE but it's hard. Firefox is also the best option for using grease monkey scripts. In short, you need Firefox if you are doing anything illigit on neopets.

    Now, for proxy info: A proxy makes it look like your computer is accessing whatever from somewhere else. This means you can make accessing 10 different accounts on your computer look like access from different parts of the world. Because the interwebz has to go through whatever to make the connection, proxies are often painfully SLOW. Luckily, neopets only records your IP on LOGIN AND LOGOUT

    EDIT: It is suspected that IP's are also recorded on PASSWORD AND EMAIL CHANGES

    Here's a little tutorial on using http://hidemyass.com/proxy-list/ with firefox.

    Here's what your page will look like:


    You want ones that are HTTPS and HIGH+KA because these hide your identities the best. I don't know about socks4/5 but they should work fine too; I just never looked into them.

    Now, here's a little diagram of the parts:

    Speed is not at all important, but connection time is. Make sure the connection time is at least green, and try to get a speed of at least mid-red.

    Here's a little diagram of the steps to enter your IP and PORT


    And now you are using a proxy!

    For TOR: Download it https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en

    And then open the browser and go to the same place as the firefox one:


    That button for new identity will be on your onion control panel thing, you press this to use a new identity.
    You can just use the tor browser but it is very slow and blocks all plugins.
    So, copy and paste the numbers and set up everything to match what you see on the tor browser to firefox.
    Now, when you press the button you will use a new identity on firefox and can switch back to no proxy whenever you want!

    Tor assigns you a random identity from it's list, essentially doing what you would do with manually choosing a proxy and entering it yourself. On the downside, there are a finite number of these proxies so if you login to an account there is a chance that another person has logged into an account on the same network; as far as I know this has not created any problems though.

    so do you recommend we use a proxy from our country/neighbouring countries or is it alright to use any proxy regardless of the country as long as it has https and high +ka?

    Personally, I don't pay attention to that all but I don't autobuy or do stuff that would really draw attention to myself. As long as you aren't logging in to an account an unreasonable number of times (I stick to a max of three personally) a day from all over the place you should be fine. The main purpose is to avoid being chained, because even if some account does some really fishy stuff neo won't be able to detect that other accounts you use are linked to that account... at least not by IP login info.

    If you have the bottom status bar visible in your version for firefox, you can use elite proxy switcher, much faster proxy switching for those of us with too many accounts

    Oh, So there is no problem if I log in using proxy and then "turn it off" and navigate through neopets with my original ip? Not forgetting to turn on the proxy when I log out, of course.

    I just keep my proxy on the whole time I'm on a specific account since mine doesn't lag very much but the common belief here is that you can turn it off after you log in and make sure you turn it back on before you log off.

    I understand that plugins like shockwave & flash can negate Tor's anonymity by sending info to the site. Do you know if TNT does any other checks besides the IP check that might compromise Tor's safety?

    Would it be wisest to login with the plugins disabled and just enable them to play games, customize etc?
