Q1: Which WinProxy versions are supported by ProxyInspector?

A1: Ositis WinProxy 3.x or higher.


Q2: Why does the traffic reported by ProxyInspector not correspond to the traffic shown by the provider?

A2: There could be several reasons for it:
- Provider counts traffic on the interface while WinProxy counts HTTP, TCP/UDP, FTP and other protocol traffic, thus it does not count IP/TCP/UDP headers. Resulting inconsistencies depend on the MTU (Maximum Transfer Unit - for Ethernet the size of the frame) and may be up to 5-10%.
- Your provider counts 1 Kb as 1000 byte while ProxyInspector counts 1 Kb as 1024 bytes by default. This value is configurable - Database | Program settings | Reports | Traffic information format
- Traffic that bypasses WinProxy. It is possible if WinProxy computer is set up as router or has a mail server, which works directly.
