 Unlikely IP is an open proxy Not open proxies. These are highly dynamic cell network ranges for AT&T.... the only thing that makes me not rule out a proxy entirely is that the hostname seems to have "server" in it, but there doesn't seem to be any evidence of an actual server running....

Reason: Requested unblock at User talk:Haberstr.

08:37, 27 December 2012 ProcseeBot blocked 86.36.66.12 for 59 days as a {{blocked proxy}}, citing 86.36.69.165:80. I have confirmed that 86.36.69.165:80 is an open proxy, though connection is very unreliable, with only one successful connection out of six attempts. However, I have not been able to confirm whether or not the proxy exits at 86.36.66.12. http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/86.36.66.12 says that the IP address is a confirmed proxy server. JamesBWatson (talk) 15:20, 2 January 2013 (UTC)
I am no longer sure that I have confirmed that 86.36.69.165:80 is an open proxy. I may have merely picked up a cached copy of a page from before my attempt to connect via the proxy. JamesBWatson (talk) 15:28, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Not open proxies. These are Singaporean IPs (singnet, etc.). They can be rapidly reassigned (down to about a minute in my observation), though within a small subrange. Those above are maybe the same person on different PCs. Materialscientist (talk) 14:02, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

89.238.153.10 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex/WHOIS - Google - HTTP

This IP is currently directly blocked as a sock of User:Wikinger, and indirectly as part of the proxy rangeblock of 89.238.153.0/24. Both blocks are from 2010. However, according to a request received through UTRS, it appears that 89.238.153.10 was reassigned to St Mary's School (Calne) six months ago, and the school have requested that it be unblocked to allow editing. (Based on the UTRS request there appears to be a COI issue as well, to be dealt with separately.) I'm putting this here for review, so that those with more experience in this area can verify whether or not the proxy block and/or sockblock is still appropriate.

    • Not an open proxy Can't block these I'm afraid, these are a special case. Opera Mini is a nifty little web browser that compresses traffic between the phone and a server to save on a person's data allowance and thence transmits the data uncompressed from that server through the interwebs. I actually use it myself a fair bit. However, it's treated like any other mobile ISP. Highly dynamic IPs, so the best we can do is a short anonblock for the most serious situations so as not to block legitimate editors. Sailsbystars (talk) 03:31, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Reason: Requested unblock via UTRS.--Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 20:01, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

 Unlikely IP is an open proxyLooked into this a bit... it's definitely not a normal computer, but I'm not clear it's an open proxy (might be a caching/filtering server for that particular ISP). I can't find anything remotely resembling an open proxy server on it and I even resorted to the last-ditch effort of running a port scan. Pretty much everything is closed and firewalled hard core. I would ping the blocking admin via email (beans and such) and ask them for more details on the block, but would lean towards unblocking unless there was some specific technical feature I'm missing here. Sailsbystars (talk) 03:23, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
Looks like it may be a router or firewall at this point in time. I believe when I first examined it, I concurred with User:ProcseeBot that it was a proxy or being used as one - but things change. I don't mind unblocking and monitoring it. Dreadstar 20:21, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

 Unlikely IP is an open proxy I looked into this a bit on my own before it popped up here. I really don't think this is a proxy.... looks much more like someone editing through their mobile phone. Is there any evidence this is a proxy other than behavioral? Sailsbystars (talk) 17:21, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
It is listed as a "confirmed proxy server" here,[3] the "whois" tool on the special contributions page. Mathsci (talk) 18:07, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

220.255.2.123 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex/WHOIS - Google - HTTP

Reason: Per UTRS #6110, please check if this IP is still accessible. In particular, hardblocking a SingNet IP is probably a bad idea, even if it is an open proxy.

62.212.82.105 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex/WHOIS - Google - HTTP

Reason: Requested unblock via UTRS #6364. The IP is part of this rangeblock and claims they need unblocking to work on a tutorial assignment. --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 00:23, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Why not create them an account? Materialscientist (talk) 00:27, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I could provide them IPBE but that's generally only extended to trusted users. The UTRS set-up is pretty basic for these requests, they go into the proxy check holding queue until a check is run via WP:OPP to see if the proxy block is still necessary. If the block is necessary and the request has come from someone meeting IPBE criteria then we can discuss exemption with the user. --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 00:44, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
This webhosting range has a long echo of past proxies, and some are still active (http://prx.centrump2p.com/english/, etc). They are mostly in the 62.212.7x.xxx range, thus narrowing the block from 62.212.64.0/19 to 62.212.64.0/20 is an option open for discussion. Two worrying things are (i) the reporting IP 62.212.82.105 itself has the 8080 port open, which looks like a trace of past or future proxy, (ii) tutorial assignment on en.wiki from the Netherlands sounds slightly odd to me. Materialscientist (talk) 06:23, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

I would decline - there are active proxies in the range (e.g. http://cooloo.org, though it currently exits at another IP); 217.174.249.169 itself is a multisite webhost, i.e. can turn into an open proxy anytime.

  • Not a hotel, data-hotel.net is the name of the ISP that provides service to the power company. I don't see any open ports either. Sounds like an employee, not a remote user. Likely an internal firewall/gateway. Dennis Brown - © Join WER 00:47, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

Reason: Appears to be an open proxy from China. The sole edit is to troll around WP:ARBR&I in a creepy and disruptive way that is typical of the banned user Echigo mole, who has used anonymising proxies in the past. Mathsci (talk) 03:27, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

I also found this identification as a proxy on the web.[7] Mathsci (talk) 07:56, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
I did discover that the IP 111.161.30.230 is a proxy on port 80/tcp. I scanned the ports with nmap having found it on this list. [8] Mathsci (talk) 09:54, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. It exits on 113.25.65.103, which I've blocked. You'll find 111.161.30.230 as a proxy on Google but hardly 113.25.65.103. This is a usual problem with tunnel proxies, i.e. 111.161.30.218 might be one (exit port), but without knowing the entry it is hard to tell for sure. Materialscientist (talk) 10:06, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
Inconclusive There's some evidence on the internets that this IP was in fact a proxy. However, right now it's coming back that the IP address is down. So I'll check again to see if the host is up later. n.b. to myself this is coming from a pretty darn quiet range, and the edits that exist are looking like a non-proxy-hosting range... Sailsbystars (talk) 07:02, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Well, it's still down to me but it's obviously still getting used and FP@S has blocked it... it's certainly passes the WP:DUCK test, but the exact mechanism is elusive (possibly an exit server of some source). If it comes back after FP's block expires, it's probably worth blocking for a month or two, but no longer because it appears to be a fairly dynamic range. Sailsbystars (talk) 18:14, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Given the rate that this is spewing spam, I think we can safely declare it a proxy and put it away for a year even if we can't figure out the tunnel entrance. Given the additional proxies on the range above, we might want to rangeblock 111.161.30.0/24 as well, as the collateral damage is minimal but the potential for disruption is high. Sailsbystars (talk) 23:01, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Reason: This IP has been blocked in the past as a proxy (it seems the entry point could be 206.47.78.149:80). The IP is being used at present for trolling on an arbcom case page. Mathsci (talk) 23:20, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

 Unlikely IP is an open proxyHost not up/all ports closed, looks like a cell network. In fact it comes from the same provider as 204.101.237.139, which was also trolling the same arbcom pages. I think you have a good case for sockpuppetry/avoiding scrutiny, but it doesn't look like proxies. Probably too much range for an anon rangeblock... Sailsbystars (talk) 01:11, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Reason: Requested unblock per UTRS #6803. King of ♠ 11:22, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Inconclusive Soooooo.... this is a complicated case. The IP in question seems to belong to a quite legitimate and useful closed-proxy type service. Unfortunately, that IP is smack in the middle of a range full of nastiness. So, we can't really unblock the range. So, if this is an experienced editor, they might have reason to request WP:IPBE (although it appears the criteria for that right are getting stricter after it was recently mis-used). If it's not, then the best solution is for them to disable the proxy service. Sailsbystars (talk) 01:31, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Also, please only edit one request for the same range at a time.... Sailsbystars (talk) 19:44, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Not a proxy, and no reason to include an entire range. Block was for ) in Germany. As everyone can see, this IP has changed to Customer Route Object - Global TAC (24731) in the US, and was confirmed changed by an administrator of a private corporation. (See the address per the {{proxyip4}} template above). So unless the previously blocked user moved to the US and now works for Global Tac, which is far from likely, lets unblock this range!


This form was filled ou correctly and completely. Thank You! Patriot1010 (talk) 18:33, 28 March 2013 (UTC) Reason: Requested unblock.

That's odd, same block log as 207.195.240.33...except I requested a block for 207.195.240.33DIFF 195.240.33...DIFF:207.195.240.0/20but it was closed with no block...So technically this IP range is blocked but it isn't blocked at the same timePatriot1010 (talk) 19:33, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

User:Owen2kuk(User Owen2kuk) had to revert 3 edits from this IP DIFF: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Royston,_Hertfordshire&curid=279710&diff=547614813&oldid=547585335 .Upon checking OverlordQ tools, this IP - this IP is really a spoof. The actual IP range is from 86.0.1.89, and according to ip.robtex.com, is on 5 blacklists for spamming (http://ip.robtex.com/86.0.1.89.html#blacklists ). Also according to OverlordQ tools, the actual IP has many ips behind it. Furthermore, the IP has a pointer to a legitimate website (http://ip.robtex.com/86.0.1.89.html#graph) but it actually goes to ip 86.0.0.0/16, with routes of 86.0.0.0/11, 86.0.0.0/13, 86.0.0.0/14, and appears to currently route to 86.0.0.0/15. Therefore, I recommend a block to 86.0.0.0/15 also, and will reference this record. The web-proxy is coming from the website http://bgp.he.net/ip/86.0.1.89#_rbl, indicated below. I included all the urls and will record this finding on my talk page for record. http://bgp.he.net/ip/86.0.1.89#_rbl Reason: Suspicious edits

Not an open proxy No, not even close. I'm afraid you're spewing gobbledygook. For further reading: CIDR notation. Sailsbystars (talk) 15:22, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Blocked with no edit or user reference, and Hetzner Online AG is not an open proxy.

It took me all of three seconds to find a active tor node in the range. Do you have the rangecontrib checking javascript enabled? Sailsbystars (talk) 06:50, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Hmm have a link for that? I just use OverlordQ tools. For example - this range has 2 edits, one from 178.0.0.104 and one from 178.0.1.71....so if this range has been blocked since 2008 - how was IP 178.0.1.71 able to post on 15 MAR 2013? Wow that is unusual. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Music_Never_Stopped&diff=prev&oldid=544496339 . (Sorry for not making a DIFF - things seem to change day by day).

Here Ill put the little line noted in the history: 23:35, 15 March 2013‎ 178.0.0.104 (talk)‎ . . (3,863 bytes) (+30)‎ . . (linking the essay to the book it is from)...because you know, that IP range is in rolandr.nl, here is the robtx records, available to the public of course http://dns.robtex.com/rolandr.nl.html#records. It might be related to my sockpuppet investigation.Patriot1010 (talk) 03:04, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Because neither 178.0.0.104 or 178.0.1.71 is within the range of 178.63.0.0/16. Sailsbystars pointed you to CIDR notation on your last report. You really need to read up on networking before you make any more reports. -- Gogo Dodo (talk) 03:25, 2 April 2013 (UTC)
