Author Topic: Visiting Adultwork using a proxy server  (Read 6946 times)

Offline xuan

Does anyone know why you can't get on Adultwork using a proxy server? I've tried using FF, Chrome, and IE9 and each time I get the same problem- I can't get past the first page where you must click 'enter'. I know that plenty others have had the same problem. Adultwork is heavily dependent on javascript for its functionality, most links are not standard html anchors (<a href></a>) but instead use javascript redirection, and seems that in this case the java function is not firing. I'm fairly computer-savvy, but I can't see any obvious way in which a proxy server should affect any javascript function on the pages, unless they've actually deliberately set up a system that prevents people from using proxies (by scanning the URL segments or something)

It's a pain in the arse. Anyone got a solution?

The Adultwork site is terrible - many things work in odd ways, and it breaks more of the HTML and CSS standards than almost any other site I've come across. Redirects on it do really strange things at times as well, and the javascript often breaks when I'm using it, so I end up with links I can't follow, buttons that suddenly don't work etc. Doesn't matter which browser I use, it's fundamentally badly designed and written.

I dread to think how anyone using assistive technologies, such as screen reader software (for severe dyslexia, partial sight, etc.) would get on with it.

Adultwork uses Javascript to enter it.

Most webproxy's don't support Javascript/Java/flash etc.

Only option is to find a webproxy that supports javascript. Then you should be fine.

Or other option is to setup a VPN on your router to achieve what I am guessing you are trying to achieve.

My thoughts exactly. It seems that search queries, like most things on the site, are done almost entirely through javascript, despite having to load a new page anyway to show the results (meaning that all the processing could easily- and far more reliably- be carried out server-side between the page-change). My internet connection was particularly slow the other day, and I noticed that when doing a search, each profile in the results was loaded individually, popping up on my screen one at a time, suggesting that each result was being loaded onto the page via ajax. Absolutely bizarre way to build a website.

Really? Didn't know that. Why not? Do you know any that support it?

I've been having my own problem recently, i put search details, view a profile, press back then all the profiles aren't there anymore and i have to re-enter the details. Fucking annoying..

Let's refine this question a bit:

Does anyone know of a proxy server that allows you visit AW while maintaining the full functionality of the site with a reasonable connection speed?

I spent a good 20 mins or so searching yesterday when you asked and could not find any joy so gave up.

I think your best bet is VPN.

I think your best bet is VPN.

But VPN connecting to where? It's almost the same problem as finding a proxy that supports it - most of the anonymous VPN services appear to come from the same providers as the proxy servers.

Yes but most providers use the free webproxy as an advertisement to their premium VPN service .

The webproxy is heavily restricted as sort of a push to get you to purchase their vpn service.

And finally one of the reasons why most webproxy providers restrict javascript and flash is because most malware and definitely spam advertising on websites use these features. So people would normally see it as a benefit for advert less browsing.

For example

http://hidemyass.com/

Which is probably the one most people know just uses its webproxy service to advertise its VPN.

You're right, and most of those services will probably be perfectly OK with things like Adultwork.

I've been thinking for a while about setting up a VPN service at home, so I can make use of it when out and about, so at least everything is going through my own connection, rather than having to trust random connections I may be able to connect to in other places.

You could kill two birds with one stone and get Giganews

http://www.giganews.com/

This is easily the best usenet provider and you get ViperVPN with the package. And also your own cloud storage too.

Helpful replies, guys, thanks. I might have to look into getting a VPN set up as well. Fucking adultwork. It doesn't take a genius to realise that this is the sort of site that many people are going to want to remain anonymous when visiting. Stupid pricks. Although I'm actually a little suspicious that this is in fact done deliberately; If you go to adultwork using a proxy server and click 'view source', you'll see that the word 'proxy' appears several times in the javascript code, suggesting that the site detects the fact you are using a proxy and throws a specific response (although I can't understand the code enough to tell what that response is). AnthG, what do you reckon?

Either way, I still think it's a terribly designed site, as there is no need whatsoever for a site like this to rely so heavily on javascript for its core functionality.

What happens if you use a proxy server IP address and port from a list of anonymous servers - rather than using a webproxy such as Hidemyass.  I may have misunderstood and you have tried this.
