If you are finding HTTP Proxy servers its better to scan for ports such as: 80, 8080, 3128, 6588 and for SOCKS4 and 5 Proxy servers you can use port 1080.
All these above mentioned are common ports but there are some uncommon ports as well that you need to find at yourself for various proxies.

It is recommended to have a good range of IP address to scan having high chances of Proxy Servers. For best results it is better to get a good working proxy online that can be used for scanning. For instance, if you get a good HTTP or SOCKS proxy at the IP address like 22.214.171.124, you can have two values in the scanner with IP range of: 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
You can save the list as a text file if you get some proxies in the scanning. The next step is to get software known as Charon, used as Proxy Checker/Verifier that holds some powerful capabilities.
Then check all the IP addresses in the scan results and then open up Charon and load the IP address list that you have saved from SUPER Scan. It is better to load entire list in the main window and finally click the Check Proxies and then Check Anonymity of All Proxies. Then you can search for your own Proxy servers of all types such as HTTP, SOCKS 4 and 5, SSL and Transparent.
