    this means it could not detect any proxy, so either your not using a proxy or the proxy does not certain http headers
    in this case you said your tracing your ip so your not using a proxy so it means no proxy so bad, if you know your using a proxy (ip shows up different than your ip) then you are using a highly anonymous proxy which is a good thing.
    it basically means it cannot tell if you are using a proxy or not
