Web Browser + Proxomitron Reborn + PtronGUI --- A How-To Guide


Recommended Posts

Are you using the 2019-01-26b1 that JJoe submitted as an update to an older sidki3003 config?

I'm starting to think that for "modern usage", I may build up a config completely from scratch.

"Modern usage" doesn't really need it to be the Swiss Army Knife that it is (I don't intend to "replace" Stylus, NoScript, uMatrix, and Tampermonkey but rather use in conjunction with).

I don't know, is there a way to check?

 

[edit]

I don't see anything named sidki or .ptron files, maybe it is just the base program without any extras.

I admit that I was a bit skeptic on BFilter at first (it has not been updated since 2008).  All I kept seeing it block is Google adservers and analytics that I block with other methods.

It did block 1x1 pixel ads on https://www.quora.com/Which-website-has-the-most-ads (that Proxomitron also blocks).

Although the 1x1 pixel ads on quora were the ONLY blocks (outside of Googlisms) in its log after bouncing around and hunting for ads for over an hour - but it DID block "something" (with all of my other methods disabled), so I cannot discredit it.

If you open your config file in a text editor, I'll be able to know what config you are using if you can show us what your "Blocklists" section looks like.

You can add your rules in Advanced configuration > urls.local

Some examples:

-1 *waitbutwhy.com/*
-5 *video.google.com/*

^ less dynamic blocking in matched url

 

+5 http://www.addic7ed.com/*

+6 http://zbar.zynga.com/*

^ more dynamic blocking

 

AD *gdpr*/*.js

FORBID *.popads.net*

FORBID http://playinfo.gomlab.com/*
FORBID https://applog.gomtv.com*
FORBID http://info.gomlab.com/eng_ad.html

^ last three prevent ads in the status field of Gom player and update checks

 

ALLOW turbo*.opera-mini.net*

NOFILTER */recaptcha/releases/*.js

^ don't block

That's the original author's default config from 2003.  Nobody really uses that one anymore.

However, I am having a higher success rate with the 2003 default config than I am with anything dated 2008 and newer.

So the newer (and more complicated than needed when using in conjuction with NoScript, uMatrix, Stylus, etc) config files are going to be too bloated.

So good call, reverting to the 2003 and adding to it as opposed to running something from 2008 and newer and stripping it down.

My current chains are like this:

HTTPS - browser > ProxHTTPSProxyMII Front > BFilter (for easy blocking)  > Proxomitron > ProxHTTPSProxyMII Rear > CCProxy (for caching) > internet

@RainyShadow - how did you assign all of your ports?

Ignoring BFilter (at least for now), I'm not able to get these chain links to link  --  ProxHTTPSProxyMII Front > Proxomitron > ProxHTTPSProxyMII Rear

This, the only reason (for me) to use Proxo at all:

$OHDR(Tagged:ProxHTTPSProxyMII FrontProxy/*)$SETPROXY(127.0.0.1:8083)(^) | $LST(Bypass)

Put it in the "bypass urls" field in the prefs.

============================================================================
ProxHTTPSProxyMII v1.5 (urllib3/1.22)

  FrontServer  : localhost:8079
  RearServer   : localhost:8083
  ParentServer : http://192.168.1.11:8081
  Proxomitron  : http://localhost:8080
============================================================================

For some reason ParentServer won't work when i set it to localhost. Pretty annoying when i have to use WiFi or something else than my fixed wired  connection to my home router.

The one at 8080 is actually BFilter, it then forwards to Proxo at 8082.

CCProxy is at 8081.

 

Browser settings are HTTP:8080, SSL:8079, and i use the "Proxy selector" extension to quickly toggle the settings in case of issues.

Do you have a download link?  I can't find this extension.  Nevermind.  That's a FIREFOX extension.  This is an EASY chain in Firefox.  It's only on Chromium-based that I need to use ProxHTTPSProxy without the MII.

@RainyShadow - Please let me know if you can get this setup working in 360Chrome.  Thanks in advance.

For a geeky person that loves tinkering with computers, I'm at my wits end here!  I simply can NOT get ProxHTTPSProxyMII to link to Proxomitron.

There seems to be very limited interest in it here at MSFN but I'm hoping SOMEBODY can direct me as to what I'm doing wrong.

This is INSANE and setting up ProxHTTPSProxyMII should NOT require a 6yr doctorate degree!

I can get the old ProxHTTPSProxy (no MII at the end), but it doesn't work as intended and I can only assume it is because it is a BETA version.

I can't run that here. You'll have to settle for Chrome 34:

Here's my setup screencaps.  HELP, please.

I thought YOU were making the guide, lol.

For starters check that link i posted earlier. I did just the bare minimum to get ProxHTTPSProxyMII running, then built up from there.

Also, why do you have both HTTP and HTTPS at the same port?!

 

P.S.
