Default multiple proxy support / automatic rotating list

Hi guys,
I've read in the different threads that you're currently working on the topic.

Could you please give use some status about an eventual release date ?

In addition, I'd just like to share that:
1) you should not limit the size of the proxy list : why ? most of public proxies won't allow download features, those who does support this have poor performance, so only dedicated or non public proxy are worth using, and there is absolutely no issue of performance or whatever with it. Think about worldwide company proxies for instance.
2) it may be possible to use multiple proxies at the same time, with a configurable "concurrency" option for maximum occurences.

3) using proxies will never harm file hosters more than before !

some other soft downloaders support point1), or point 2).

Would be good if JD could support both !

Thank you anyway for your great job !

Cool

I completely agree with your post. I think it was not possible to implement it in the current download system. For its status, please look at Feature #688 : ProxyList support

Since this "rotating proxy list" feature is one of the most wanted features on this board I wouldn't understand it can't be included in the next version of the download engine.

In the mean time and if you've enough RAM memory, you can run multiple instances of jD with a different proxy server address. Just make copies of your jD folder and start the exe or jar files. Don't forget to split your link lists as well.

@remi:

Have you looked at the Tor network (or Vidalia)? That might help, but it would have to be set up to not change proxies in the middle of a download.

If you use jD on the TOR network, be careful for bandwidth hogging if you transfer massive amounts of data. Tor enables Internet anonymity by thwarting network traffic analysis. It should be reserved for people suffering from extremely communist dictatorships.

Like the US under the Bush administration?

Actually, I think you can use Tor with a level of 1 (the default is 3), so that you hog less of the resources. The best solution I have heard about is that people work together to lease a virtual server and a Premium account. But RS and HF are adding further restrictions that make such use difficult.

I don't see many differences between Bush and Obama's policies, but the USA are still not an extremely communist country, but it's getting worse every year. Do you remember Michael Moore's documentary Sicko on health care? Do you know which country/isle he cited as having the "best and cheapest" health care system?

I think foreign policy is much more inspired by communism, but I don't see any difference between Bush, Obama or whatever US administration in the last decades. The USA are actively supporting and creating more and more extremely corrupt and communist regimes. Most of the USA's gigantic national debt is covered by China - I guess you don't need a picture about who's controlling who?

Default Multiple simultaneous HTTP proxies

Hi,

What'd you think of this idea:

Have JDownloader take a list of HTTP or SOCKS proxies, and it will be able to do multiple downloads from hosts that restrict connections per IP.

Any news on this ?
I heard that someone wrote an updated proxy support which should just be included :-)

I Feature #688 I see that "Done" is equal to 0% and the priority is Low.

That's definitely my most wanted feature too.

I have dedicated hosting I normally use as SOCKS proxy for browsing the net.
Would love to have jD rotate between my direct internet connection and the proxy when download limits are reached.

Also, I too am hoping there are no proxy limits... at least no less than 4 slots (including direct connection as an option).

I believe that the developers have the incorrect notion that proxies are not for downloading unless your ISP requires it.

They don't want people using Tor, etc. for downloading.

There are proxy manager programs that you can use. You would set JD to use a proxy on Localhost:8080 and the proxy manager program would rotate your proxies from a list. You download a new list daily from Google.

Using tor to download something is indeed a VERY VERY bad idea because it's very slow (also because many people use it for downloading -.-) and well i's just not made for downloading...

Aww shoot. Embarrassingly enough, I haven't actually used Tor before... like ever so I don't know but I'm assuming there's no way of blocking access to Tor so that private proxies can be used?

I'm afraid an external proxy app won't be much help since it's not aware of when a new IP is required (in other words, is a fully manual process) otherwise I have a tool called Proxifier that can do that.

Damn, that is really bad news.

When the event manager comes back an external proxy changer might be a solution.

How about a batch script for Reconnection that tells Proxifier to change proxies?

I bet that would be very popular.
