The multiwiki MetaProject on open proxies seeks to identify, verify and block open proxies and anonymity network exit nodes. To prevent abuse or vandalism, only proxy checks by verified users will be accepted. All users are welcome to discuss on the talk page, report possible proxies, or request that a blocked IP be rechecked.

Active IP range that was recently active on 103.254.208.148 (talk · contribs · WHOIS). This range has been blocked in the past. 2601:1C0:4401:24A0:D30:1D07:A2EE:90DB (talk) 07:14, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

172.83.40.67 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex - WHOIS - proxy checker - Google - HTTP - stalk

Reason: Suspicious edits

  • WHOIS states that the /24 range at 172.83.40.0/24 is operated by Total Server Solutions. From their web site they are a web hosting company. Edits from this range have been reported at WP:AN3. I've blocked the range for three months anon-only as {{webhostblock}}. Offering this for review here to be sure I did it correctly. If confirmed, a block of one year or more might be reasonable. EdJohnston (talk) 20:55, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
    EdJohnston, Yep - that's a hosting range. I've re-blocked it as a 1-year long hardblock, and cleaned up the other non-blocked TSS ranges. SQLQuery me! 23:08, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Reason: Used by country-hopping spammer. IamNotU (talk) 22:33, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

IamNotU -  Unlikely IP is an open proxy. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any technical evidence that this IP is presently an open proxy. SQLQuery me! 03:03, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

80.179.42.39 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex - WHOIS - proxy checker - Google - HTTP - stalk

Reason: Used by obvious sock of Shingling334 known to use proxies, ipqualityscore.com score 95 "Proxy/VPN Detected" IamNotU (talk) 22:52, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

IamNotU, HQServ indeed appears to be a VPS. Blocked, and I'll try to find more ranges belonging to this hosting provider to block. SQLQuery me! 02:57, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

72.46.128.0/19[edit]

Symbol wait old.png A user has requested a proxy check. A proxy checker will shortly look into the case.

72.46.128.0/19 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex - WHOIS - proxy checker - Google - HTTP - stalk

Reason: Requested unblock of part of range. Blocked by User:Elockid on 00:23, 5 October 2015. User:Elockid has gone AWOL, so I cannot ask them. http://whois.domaintools.com/72.46.128.0 shows the range to Versaweb as a /20 (not /19), and I have a user on OTRS (caught in the block) at 72.46.148.212 - they are coming up as a different company (United Electric Cooperative in a different state) (http://whois.domaintools.com/72.46.148.212), and it appears the user is correct when they say they are on a static broadband (http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/72.46.148.212). Maybe Versaweb have sold on some of their allocation? They could obviously go for IPBE, but if the block is too wide we may be losing other legitimate editors. It would make more sense to fix the range block size. Ronhjones  (Talk) 17:52, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

107.77.249.6 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex - WHOIS - proxy checker - Google - HTTP - stalk

Reason: Long history of vandalism and blocks, "confirmed proxy server" by whatismyipaddress.com, proxy score 100 at ipqualityscore.com. IamNotU (talk) 22:23, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
