How to identify a WEB proxy.

Hello all, I'm interested in how one can identify what type of WEB proxy server is connecting trough. Since it's a passive service, I can't just telnet to the port and grab the banners. Also, whn capturing the traffic, all there is to see is the http headers since the rest of the information can be forged.

I'm not talkign about using "amap" to identify the service., but whether it is possible to get the commercial product being used.
