Step 1

First of all you will need to make a list of web-pages containing proxies. To make it you can use the following links:

http://www.freeproxy.ru/ru/links.htm

http://www.freeproxy.ru/ru/free_proxy/get.htm

The list of such links is enough for the next step.

Another way to find web-pages containing proxies is using search engine at http://www.google.com.

Here you need to choose some known proxy and to type its address and the port value (surrounded by quotations) in the search field. For example "1.1.1.1:1080". Remember that you should better use some fresh but not the newest proxy. The best is to use proxies that are 2-3 days old.

As a result you will get pages containing many other proxies besides the one you were searching for. It's just what you need! Now only copy these links to the Notepad.

Why shouldn't use the newest proxy? That is because search engines do indexing of web-pages only once per week or even per month.

Step 2

If you don't want to use download managers just save all the web-pages to your hard drive manually. Otherwise continue with the step 3.

You should save web-pages manually in the following way. Open the web-pages one by one with any browser (using links from Notepad) and save them as HTML to your hard drive.

Then you skip step 3 and continue with step 4.

Step 3

If you want to speedup the process and to download all the pages at a time use one of the download managers. It's enough to copy all the links from Notepad to the window of the download manager. Let's see how it's done in different programs.

  1. Using Flashget
    You save the links in Notepad (Save As -> choose "Type of files - All Files" -> type filename, for example "proxies.lst" (in any case the extension must be «.lst»). Then you open Flashget and choose «File -> Import list...». Choose "proxies.lst" which was saved before. Press Open. You will see the window with download parameters of the first file. Choose «Start -> Immediately» if you want to start downloading immediately. Don't forget to set the directory where the files will be saved. Press OK. You will see another request «Use the same setting for other files?». Choose «Yes». After that the process of downloading web-pages will begin. And you will find the downloaded pages in the chosen directory.
  2. Using GetRight
    You save the links in Notepad (Save As -> choose "Type of files - All Files" -> Type the filename, for example "proxies.lst" (in any case the extension must be «.lst»)). Open GetRight and choose «File -> Import Download List...». Choose "Files of type: URL Lists" and select "proxies.lst" which was saved before. Press Open. The links from the file will be added to the download window.
    To avoid seeing windows with various options you should disable them. Choose «Tools -> GetRight Configuration -> Advanced -> Miscellaneous». Disable option «Prompt for GetRight Browser or Login Page if downloaded a web page». Then in «Tools -> GetRight Configuration -> General -> Save To» choose «One default directory for all downloads» and set the directory for saving files. Press OK to save the changes.
    Choose "Edit -> Select All" to select all the files in the download window. Press Enter.
    Press "Downloads -> Resume" to start the download. If you see the window which says «Do you wish to start Automatic Downloading instead?» choose «Do not show this message again» and press «No». All the files will be downloaded simultaneously to the directory you have chosen in options.
  3. Using Mass Downloader
    You save web links to the Notepad (Save As -> choose the filename, for example "proxies.txt"). Open the window of "Mass Downloader" and choose «File -> Import -> URLs from file...». Then choose the file "proxies.txt" which was saved before. Press Open. If you see the window which asks for the file's base address «...type the Web URL for the file...» just press OK. You will see the window containing the links from your file. Select all the links (for example using CTRL+A or a button in that window). Press «Download». You will see the window with the download options of the first file. Choose the directory where all the files will be saved. Press OK. You will see the window «Use the same properties for adding the rest of projects?». Choose «Yes». The links from the file will be added to the download window. The process of downloading the pages will begin. You will find all the pages in the chosen directory.
  4. Using ReGet Deluxe
    You save web links to the Notepad (Save As -> choose the filename, for example "proxies.txt"). Open Reget Deluxe. To avoid various windows with options it is recommended to disable one of them.
    Just choose «Options -> Program Options -> enable checkbox «Show advanced properties» -> tab «All Properties» -> Default Download Settings -> «If the file already exist» -> select option «Rename»».
    Open Reget Deluxe and choose «File -> Import queue...». Then choose "Files of type: Plain URL Lists" and select "proxies.txt" which was saved before. Press Open. The links from the file will be added to the download window and the process of downloading web-pages will begin. You will find all the web-pages in the directory you have chosen in options.

Step 4

If you have several HTML files containing the lists of proxy servers you need to combine them into one file before filtering and checking them using "Proxy Checker". That is because the program can only work with one input file. You can skip this step if you are using SxCKS Proxy Checker 1.3 or higher.

So let's unite several files into one. There are several ways to do that. As an example consider that the filenames fit the mask "file?.html".

Two variants are possible:

  1. Copy /b file1.html + file2.html + fileN.html proxylst.html
  2. For %a in (file?.html) do type %a >> proxylst.html

In case (a) file1.html, file2.html, ... fileN.html are the filenames of proxy lists. They can be not only HTML.
In case (b) you need to have file1.html, file2.html, ... fileN.html in the current directory and to launch the command from that directory.

Remember that this way of uniting the files must be changed a bit before using it. That is because the files can have different names.

Step 5

Now you will need "Proxy Checker" (in case of http/https proxy) or "SOCKS proxy checker" (in case of SOCKS proxy). You can download it here.

Choose the file "proxylst.html" (created in Step 4) in <Main -> Source file> (or press "Add..." to add all the needed files containing proxy lists). Choose the name for a new file where the results of checking will be saved. That is done in "Destination file". Press "Run". When the check is finished you will see the new file containing working proxies.
