So I'm trying to make my internet use a proxy server. I found a bunch of free servers, and I know how to tell Google Chrome to use one, but something is going wrong. When I type in the IP address of the proxy server, and set the port to the default (80), I don't have internet anymore. When I type in a web address, such as google.com, I get taken to a page about whatever proxy server I chose. I tried multiple servers and they all take me to their pages and I can't actually go to any real websites. I have never attempted to use a proxy before, so what am I doing wrong??

Thanks!

Check the proxy port.
very few if any proxy will use port 80 for the proxying, but port 80 will often lead to their website which is what is happening to you.

as example on this site you will find proxys listed by ip:port
they are separated by the ":". so just check that.
the first one there uses port 3128

Oh thanks! I just had a list of proxy sites and I was using an ip thing to get their ip. What good is a server list if it doesn't even give the proper info? Thanks for that link.

Edit: It didn't work. Still doing the same thing.

I just checked this proxy
193.104.27.90:3128
put 193.104.27.90 in Ip and 3128 in port.
is a bit slow but can be checked to see if it works.
it works (I'm using firefox, but that shouldn't make a difference)
other than that I'm not sure.

Edit:
Free proxys will almost always be buggy, slow and it can often be known that you are using a proxy. If you really need to make yourself unknown consider a vpn (a paid one at that).
