Proxychains4 not working well with free proxies


I followed a few tutorials on using proxychains and setting up the configuration file, but the free proxies I find on the web are useless.

I've use all type of protocols that each of the proxy is using like http, https and socks 4/5. When proxychains is trying to use these proxies, all I get are error messages, denied, or timeouts.

I got a list of these free proxies from these two sites http://proxylist.hidemyass.com/ and https://www.socks-proxy.net/

Do you know any working free proxies? Thanks

so this would be the Next Generation ( ng )
https://sourceforge.net/projects/proxychains-ng/


and not proxychains from 2006
http://proxychains.sourceforge.net/howto.html

a few things are missing
like
What operating system are you using ?
HOW did you install proxychains ?
What version of 4 is it ?
Where did you get it from ?
a) From Git ?
b) From your package manager ?
c) From sourceforge ?
