AuthPing command

Some web-sites may serve different content to a logged in user. In most cases logging in process consists of sending a POST or GET HTTP request to a specific URL before you start to receive targeted content. You may use AuthPing command to send such authentication request before requesting any document from the web-site.

E.g.:


AuthPing "POST https://commercial-site.ext.au/user/login.php u=bot%40user.ext.au&p=super%40pass"

This command specify a POST request to be send to the URL address https://commercial-site.ext.au/user/login.php with the following CGI loading: u=bot%40user.ext.au&p=super%40pass

AuthPing command should be specified before each Server/Realm/Subnet command it affects. And specified request is sent each time an indexing thread access a web-server for the first time in a run session.

Using SOCKS5 proxy

Proxy command is now accepting proxy type option with value either http either socks5. If you need to use username authentication with SOCKS5 proxy please use ProxyAuthBasic command to specify username and password.

E.g.:


Proxy socks5 localhost:9050

In this example a SOCKS5 proxy connection to local Tor system is specified which uses no authentication method for connection.
