Recommend me some good services for detecting VPN, proxy or datacenter IPs

I need some recommendation for free or paid (not so expensive though) service which can detect majority VPNs, proxies or IPs coming from datacenters.

I already checked maxmind official site and they have something like this:

https://www.maxmind.com/en/geoip2-anonymous-ip-database

As you can see they only do that for enterprise-level applications and is subject to custom terms and pricing.

Is there any service which provide this? How could I detect this cost effectively?

    lol that bogus, my home ip (not proxied VPNed anything) gives a 0.994416296875 probability

    im really starting to wonder why thou...

    Get 20 euros for free @ hetzner using this link
    Play with an LXC container @ microlxc.net

    PM me the IP and I'll let you know why. It doesn't just look for proxies / VPNs anymore, it also looks for bad IPs.

  • 0.95 for my legit home ip :( are you sure your checker is legit?

  • PM sent, really wondering now...

    Really like what I see. I tested some TOR IPs and also my Vultr datacenter IPs and they returned 1. I am not sure how accurate it is since many here reported that their home IP is returned 0.95 score or something. Also price is little too high for me. On maxmind they said I could use their Minfraud service which is 0.005 per query or 5$ / 1k that is the main reason why I am trying to find some good free alternative or atleast cheaper.

    I tried to PM him, but he doesn't exist on this forum?

    Yes. I closed that thread because I found a solution. Didn't like support and treatment which I received from some weird users. I think you was one of them...

    It's @KuJoe and if I'm correct, @WHT is referring to https://github.com/KuJoe/chkProxy which does maxmind lookups.

    I'm talking to them now. One of the IPs was harshly judged, I'll make a commit later on in the day to fix it. The other, I'm not so sure but I will work with him to see if I can fix it. If there's any false results you can always email or PM me and I'll look into the issue and fix it.

    You don't really have to take any automated action, just have a warning system (like send yourself an email) and review it case by case.

    Here, I will not give you the source like you asked in the pm so have what the other guy got

    I had this diagram somewhere over how I made ours Basically ours works in layers/levels.

    Basically it will port scan the ip with the normal stuff 80, 8080, 22, 21 etc if it doesn't find anything it pushed it to the next level. The next level scans port 5k-12k to fetch vip72's proxies, and so on. And at the end it whitelists the ip for a while from the whole process.

    Then I had a grouper that would check with a simple AI how many blocks per ASN there was and block the whole ASN if found too many or too many servers/websites

    TriDoxiuM said that you shared this script on GitHub. Why can't you share this with me?

  • Settled the issue with @Maniac , it wasn't the code's fault and returned the correct result.

    Sounds fine. Admins should really be looking at IPs > 0.97. 0.50 is like flipping a coin and guessing if it's a proxy or not. I don't recommend admins doing anything to IPs < 0.80 (at least in an automated manner). The real value it generates lets sysadmins draw their own lines like 0.97+ is automatic error message, 0.90+ is manual review, etc (which is much more helpful than returning "yes it's a proxy" vs "no it's not a proxy")


    The system has served over 2 million queries last month and I've had about 2 valid complaints that was fixed. 2 / 2 million is not too shabby. You can and should contact me if you feel like something is wrong, I'll do my best to fix it.

    Back on topic, there are other free solutions like http://www.shroomery.org/ythan/proxyblock.php and there's blocked.com which is a paid solution that hasn't been mentioned.

    You need an accurate IP base like ipip.net.
