Proxied Internet Explorer

Recommended Posts



I am really struggling with trying to hide my IP as I use Autoit. I got a free IP from Hidemyass.com, and this is the current situation:

#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Local $aArray

HttpSetProxy(2, "")
Local $url = _IECreate("http://whatismyipaddress.com/", 1, 1)
HttpSetProxy(2, "")
Local $result = _IEDocReadHTML($url)
$aArray = StringSplit($result, @CRLF)

Local $aString = $aArray[_ArraySearch($aArray, '<!-- do not script -->', 1, $aArray[0], 0, 1)+1]

ConsoleWrite($aString & @LF)


This code will input your IP in the console. Somehow it shall instead input the IP from a proxy. To prove it works :P However, as you may tell, it's disobedient. Do someone know how to make it obey me?

I believe HttpSetProxy only affects the script execution itself.  Since _IE funcs use IE itself, you'd have to set the IE proxy.  Why are you trying to hide your IP; better yet, what legititmate reasons are there to hide your IP?

Actually just had a similar discussion where winHTTP.au3 was mentioned having provisions for proxies ( >link here ). I would use this instead of HTTPSetProxy as it uses _IE functions per spudw2k's statement.
