Proxomitron Updates / Proxomitron 4.4
« on: October 09, 2002, 03:54:22 PM »
Proxomitron 4.4 Released

Downloads Click here

New stuff in Naoko 4.4

* Added KEYCHK command. This can be used to test for keypress
combinations inside a filter. It works like any matching test
and can be used in a filter's match or a URL match. When the
match is done KEYCHK will return as "matched" if the keys
being tested for are currently pressed. Most keys can be tested
by using their *unshifted* values. However, there's several
special key tests which begin with a carat "^" symbol....

^A = ALT
^T = TAB
^F1 = Function key #1
^F2 = Function key #2
^32 = Virtual keycode 32 (spacebar)
^65 = Virtual keycode 65 ("A")

These are not case sensitive so either "^c" or "^C" may be used.
Multiple keys can be included to test for combinations. For


This will work for any combination the keyboard allows. Other
special keys can also be tested if you know the Windows virtual
keycode - this is a number between 0-255. For instance ^2 tests
for the right mouse button.

* Added LOGFILE option to blockfiles. Adding this keyword to the top
of any blockfile tells Proxomitron not to treat the contents as
matching tests or to load them into memory. This makes it safe to
use the file as a log file when using $ADDLST(). It also increases
speed - normally $ADDLST opens the file, appends the new entry, and
then closes the file again. However in LOGFILE mode the file will
remain open between writes to make inserting large amounts of data
much more efficient.

It's important to keep this in mind if you load a logfile into another
program while it's in use since recent entries may still be in the
file buffer and not written yet. However, reloading the config or
editing a log via the "Edit blockfile" option from a Proxomitron
menu will flush any unwritten data to the log. You can give your
logfiles a filename extension other than ".txt" then associate that
extension with a specialized logfile viewer if you wish. This allows
the "edit blockfile" option to be used to launch your log viewer.

* Added $FILE(filename) command. This will insert the contents of any file
into the replace section of any filter. It's most useful in web filters,
but will work in header filters too (keep in mind headers should only be
one line and no more than around 4k in size).

* Added $RESP(match) matching command. This command can be used to match
or capture the response code returned by a web server. Normally this
will look something like...

"200 OK" or "404 Not Found" etc.

The match starts directly with the return code so does not include the
"HTTP/x.x" portion of the reply line. However any message text after
the code is included in the match. For example, to match redirects
you could use "$RESP(302*)". This can also be useful to capture this
information for a log file.

* Entries added to a non-existent blocklist will cause a new "temporary"
list to be created with that name. This list will be memory only, and
can be used like a hash array to store information globally. Note that
the list won't appear on any menus and can't be edited (since it's not
a file), but can be called in a match and added to just like any other

Also keep in mind reloading the config or restarting Proxomitron will
clear all temporary list. Use a normal file based list if you wish to
store the information longer term.

* Multi-match replace buffers can now insert any amount of data
as long as there's enough memory (previously they were limited to 32k).
Keep in mind when desigining filters this does allocate extra memory,
so should be used carefully (especially if using the new $FILE command).

* Fixed error with stale file handles being reused - may help the
"half-loaded" page problem some people were reporting.

* Fixed reused connections still using the proxy after "Use remote
proxy" has been deselected.

* Fixed "Read overflow" warning from needlessly popping up.

* Fixed bug that could cause some hostnames not to resolve properly
when contacting a webserver on ports other than 80.

* Created a work-around for servers that send "deflate" content
encoding with/without the normal header bytes. Seems not all
servers format it the same.

* Updated proxcert.pem for another year. This is a self-signed
certificate Proxomitron uses for it's experimental SSL filtering
(not enabled by default). It's not an actual valid server

Questions and Answers / mySQL in new forum
« on: September 19, 2002, 08:13:24 PM »
mySQL in the new forum has crashed regularly the latest days, and I can assure you that I have written complaints each and every time I have seen this happen. You can also feel free to complain too: [email protected]
 is the complaint address to my ISP. I assume I have written more than 100 complaints since I rented this place

Questions and Answers / New forum topics
« on: September 02, 2002, 12:56:43 AM »
Since I now have locked many of these forums for further discussion and I might have locked topics which you might wish to discuss further, I will let it be up to the authors to copy topics from here and into the new forum for further discussion or for easier access.

I would in fact like it if the authors of filters and configuration files, copied these into the new forum so that we do not have to bounce back and forth between the forums to be able to find your good filters.

The forum here "Questions and Answers" will be locked for posting tomorrow and new topics will not be allowed from now on. Please use the new forum from now on

Questions and Answers / THIS FORUM WILL CLOSE
« on: September 01, 2002, 10:44:51 AM »
During the coming days I will close these forums one by one for posting. The reason is that I have been working on a new forum which uses mySQL and encrypted login. It has the same look and feel as this one (almost) and is both faster and more secure and up to date. It has another URL since I have decided to keep this one here as a reference because there is a huge amount of good tips and tricks here. There is so much good stuff that it is impossible to move everything into the new forum. Also every member will have to sign up again in the new forum. This is because of the encrypted login and then we can not use our old database of passwords.

The new URL is  and in fact those who wish can already sign up and start using it. Not all features are implimented yet, but I will work on it in my spare time. I am not sure that I will impliment all features which are here either, since I am trying to achive a "less work forum" as well as a faster forum.

I have also added a new section, which you can see as soon as you visit. The "Help with web pages" section. It will be permanent if there is sufficient interest for a forum like this, else we will step back to the original forums. Time will show.

So it is time to either wrap up the ongoing discussions here or move them to the new URL. I will try to use my best judgement while closing these forums here, and wait until everyone has had a chance to finish ongoing topics.

Questions and Answers / Strange code
« on: August 12, 2002, 03:23:06 AM »
Do not go here with any scripting turned on

A friend of mine asked what the code on this page does. I am not sure, but to me it seems very offencive. Take a look at the code here and see if you can tell me more exactly what it does. To me it looks like a trojan or a bot. Again, turn off scripting (vbs and javascript and everything).

All Danish members are kindly asked to read this

It is about my son's new computer which we bought at ComputerCity and which did not have a DVD as announced when we came home and unpacked it. The computer shop is admitting they have put up a false sign, but are unwilling to deliver the missing DVD as specified when we bought it.

I do not mind if anyone, Danish or any other nationality writes a short mail to this computer shop and tell them what we think about computershops who fool their customers by putting up false signs. It is the top email address at the bottom of the page.

Community Discussions (Non-Forum Related) / Failures

I believe my ISP has a bad harddisk. Three days in a row I have seen files being corrupted so that the forum stops working in one way or the other, depending on which file has been corrupted. Uploading the same file from my disk corrects the problem every time.

The mailserver also has multiple short lives, but that is not related.

Just to let you all know what is going on.

Site Specific / Arcadeathome Adbusting

The site bundles it's downloads with cookies and ads. To get around this one can use a filter like this:

Name = "ArcadeAtHome d/l AF"
Active = TRUE
URL = ""
Bounds = "<as*</a>"
Limit = 256
Match = "1dl.phtml?2++|3"
Replace = "123"
