    [*] Initializing…

    [+] Mode: STD Brute type: BASIC Timeout: 20 Retries: 4 Retry delay: 4 sec. Threads: 10
    [+] Going to brute with 3 proxies and 24020 combos… approximately 8006 requests per proxy.

    [-] Error: RAMDISK/TMP

    Any suggestion?

      A new version (1.1.2) has been released yesterday which fixes the above error. I forgot to disable the ramdisk requirement for the release version which is actually otherwise exactly the same as my development version. Download a new version from

      Here’s CHANGELOG for 1.1.2

      Headers were fixed in non-SSL FORM mode when using a SQUID proxy.
      Site and proxy protection mechanism detection was improved.

      If a cookie is received from the site in BASIC AUTH mode, it is now
      considered a possible “HIT”, regardless of a reply or success and failure

      A “days left information” was added to the estimated time left function. The default configuration file now has better examples

      PS. The next version will have new protocols supported. Im quite busy with various other projects and work though.

      You may want also try out NiX Proxy Checker:

      I can assure it’s the most reliable proxy checker out there with good features ;)

      Im not monitoring this thread that often, if you think you have found an error, you should in first place contact me using the email address listed at my site.

      That email box is monitored usually many times daily.
