Proxo is Blocking Gifs

Please help. Proxo is blocking gifs again at DSL Reports. Yes I have the bypass set for the following:
www.dslreports.com/*
i.dslr.net/*
www.dslreports.com/login/*

But either DSL Reports has added/changed something or Proxo has decided it wants to block gifs even though it is supposed to be bypassing.

Any help much appreciated.:) (And yes I did clear IE twice and tested twice before posting.)

Add [^/]++209.123.205.211/ to your bypass list. 209.123.205.211 is the IP address of i.dslr.net.

Don't mean to steal your thread, but I have Norton Internet Security installed (with ad blocking turned OFF) and DSLReport .gif files are also not showing up for me.

Why would a firewall block gif files?

As HP has suggested add the IP of i.dslr to your bypasslist.
Since I have both DSLr's IP addy, and i.dslr's in my IE Lan Settings Exceptions list, and a very tight ruleset. I completely bypass both IP's and allow them only on Port 80.

The page load speed increase for me is quite exceptional.

Thanks.:)

I wonder if I should accept cookies from 209.123.205.211, NIS 2002 prompted me today for a cookie rule.

Edit

Well.....even with adding that IP the Gifs froze again.:(

Edit 2

Yep they are froze I just cleared IE and reloaded DSLR. Gifs are still froze even with that IP. At first when I added the IP they unfroze....but they are frozen now.....

If you are still running NIS2002 and Proxo, is it NIS that is blocking the animated Gifs? (Advanced Options - Web - Active Content)

NIS is allowing the Animated Gifs. I haven't used it to block animations in about 12 months. Also I disabled NIS and cleared IE and the Gifs were still blocked. I cleared IE again and Disabled Proxo and the Gifs weren't frozen. I cleared IE again and enabled NIS and the gifs weren't frozen. I cleared IE again and enabled Proxo and the Gifs were frozen again.

So I would think Proxo is at fault. (I have been wrong before.)

Any help?????? much appreciated.

From the standpoint of an independent observer who doesn't use Proxo (I use ASP), I agree that Proxo seems to be the culprit here, GT. :)

Hi gt7697c,

Try adding..

209.123.205.211
209.123.205.210

to your bypass list. Then reload the config.

You can check if DSLR is using other IP's to deliver the gif's by..

right click the gif -> select properties -> check the URL of the gif

Don't forget to click the save settings icon like I tend to do on occasion.

I hate to sound stupid, but are you guys talking about proxomitron?

If not, what is this program proxo?

IE 6 update....ummm....as much as I like to say I am updated and patched I have stayed away from that one.

Yes Proxo and Proxomitron are one in the same....no need to run out and find/try a new program. (I know you wanted to.:))

_____________

Edit

Yes I did remember to hit the save settings button. For a brief period Proxo was blocking all gif files at DSLR. It wasn't until now that they (the gif files) came back to life.:) At least for now the gifs are back to being animated.

OK, so how do I get to this "bypass" list? I don't see it in any of my options.

Right click the program then select Edit Block File and select Bypass. (Right beside Bypass it says Bypass List.)

Just a thought - have you looked at the Proxomitron main dialog box to make sure that the "Freeze GIF animation" box is not checked?

My avatar no longer moves either (at least I can't see it and my "freeze gif animation" is not enables and all of the url's mentioned in this thread are in my bypass list.

Is this something I just have to live with?

Yes it is/was not checked at all. For some reason Gif animation has returned and I am at a loss as to why it returned or how it returned.

Nelamvr6, did you copy and paste what I had in my intro post in this thread into your bypass list?????? Did you also click on Reload Lists and clear IE and reload IE??????
