That is implementation specific. Proxies drop innactive connections. the socket stack will also drop an innactive connection after a usually longer time. Somethign like 10 minutes.

How many other users can a proxy handle ?
Implementation specific but see above.
How many connections can a proxy handle ?
Entirely implementation specific, refer to your proxy manual.
Besides the listing that says it can handle a type of connection. Are there any commands that will bring up the proxy commands list ? Or info about that proxy ?
To prevent denial of service attacks and to thwart third party spiders from building a comprehensive database for free. BTW this is actually how Google operated in the beginning, it merely compiled the results from a dozen or so other search engines. So it's actually kind of hypocritical of them to not allow new startups to use them that way, but hey thats business.
Why will a certain search engine return “we do not take automated requests” while using a proxy when that is the job of that certain search engine to search for what ever that request was for ?
Thats a proxy setting in the proxy software itself.
how come the proxy does not return most third party pictures ? It seems that the proxy will return pictures that are hosted on the web page but not all third party pictures ? That as I understand is the job of the proxy to “fetch” the web page and return it to the browser using the proxy. Guessing that the third party pictures are sent to the proxy it should then send them to the browser and user using the proxy ? Is something else going on with the picture transfer ? I understand that the third party pictures are hosted on another site repository but in theory <were that went wrong> should return the pictures to the requesting proxy ip. Then transfer them back to the browser behind the proxy.
A quicky Google search didn't turn up anything promising, but maybe a more thorough look will reveal the apple of your eye.
Know of any example code in c of a proxy ? tia
proxy hairball meow ?
