Regarding Proxies

I was trying to use proxies in my repl. I did some research, and in the Replit ToS in the Prohibited Actions on point 24 it says:

You must not use the Service to create a proxy with the purpose of circumventing any firewall or other access control measure

My repl got banned/blocked due to this, but i just want to make myself clear - I do not want to use replit as a proxy, And I don’t intend to use replit to create a proxy.

I wanted access to a webservice, but unfortunately replit’s IPs are banned for this service. I don’t have any ill/malicious intents, i am just trying to automate a tedious task.

If this helps, here is my proxy service’s example code, which i used (which got me banned.)

const axios = require("axios");
const { HttpsProxyAgent } = require("https-proxy-agent");

const url = "";
const proxyAgent = new HttpsProxyAgent(

  .get(url, {
    httpsAgent: proxyAgent,
  .then((response) => {

my question is; what can i do? is there any way i can circumvent this? can i talk to moderators to get my repl whitelisted? what on earth can i do?

i’m guessing there is another format in which to use my code in, but who knows.

@trustneil what were you trying to do when you created a proxy? You shouldn’t try and make proxies. If you weren’t trying to create one why do you have code related to proxies?

@trustneil I was asking if you were. When I asked the follow up sentence was the result if you were not me accusing you.

What are you trying to do with the external service? Why do you need a proxy to automate your task?

If your Repl was wrongly blacklisted for being a proxy, you can make an appeal at
