Services at an IP Address

Below are a variety of services that we attempt to detect running at any specific IP address.

None

We are not able to detect any specific services running at this IP address. However, it does not mean there are none.

Suspected Network Sharing Device

We believe that this IP address represents the public IP address of a router or firewall with more than one device behind it. This does not mean that your computer or network has been hacked or compromised. This is a common status for a residential connection with multiple devices (a family, etc.). We do not think this is a proxy server.

Suspected Proxy Server

We believe this IP address is a proxy server. A proxy server is a computer that offers a computer network service to allow clients to make indirect network connections to other network services. A client connects to the proxy server, then requests a connection, file, or another resource available on a different server. The proxy provides the resource either by connecting to the specified server or by serving it from a cache. In some cases, the proxy may alter the client’s request or the server’s response for various purposes.

Confirmed Proxy Server

We are confident this IP address is a proxy server. The device has either self-identified as proxy service or is known to provide proxy services to the public.

Open Proxy Server

This IP address is an open proxy server that can be used by anyone.

Tor Exit Node

We are confident this IP address is the public IP address of a Tor server.
