    vps outbound port restriction

    hi 

     

    I want to check with the community whether go daddy vps restrict any outbound port?

     

    I plan to use vps to run my scraping script which will route to external proxp ip:port.

     

    e.g curl command 

    curl --verbose --proxy "52.197.112.254:8080" --url www.yahoo.com

     

    I found out this is restricted on go daddy shared hosting.

    If you have linux vps, possible help to run above command and see whether connection is ok.

     

    Please send me an email if anyone have use linux vps for scraping before. Thanks

    Hi @andy80,

    Yes, you may use the outbound port 8080 using GoDaddy VPS. However I'm not sure if scraping would be compliant with TOS.
