    My pc is behind a proxy server. I am unable to perform any firewall tests

    From the sites below.

    www.auditmypc.com/firewall-test.asp

    www.hackerwatch.org/probe/


    These always pick my proxys ip address and not mine. I am unable to check my
    GDATA 2011 Internet Security Firewall.

    Is there a way to do the tests even from behind a proxy??

    If you're within a network, maybe try downloading and using a software port scanner on another computer to test your firewall.

    Or if your machine is a laptop, maybe try going to some place with WiFi, and try that.

    If you're within a network,

    yes you could use a port scanner for internal use.and give you port results."external scanning "no"

    like the sites You asked about,tell you, you would scan the ip's proxy.only

    routers : if a fire wall build in a router are enabled, you would not get a true Result as well
    even if not using a proxy.to scan for A result from software Fire wall installed on a system(your PC)
    as it scans the routers(* fire wall) ,you need to disengage this
    but as you Asked ~"Proxy ip scanning"~ ,that are used by you, No
    YOU would get results from that only..the PROXY IP ADDRESS.
