There are different ways to get your console ID. If you have a flasher then you can make a dump of your flash, then locate your EID0 there and the first 16 bytes will be your Console ID. The second way is using a proxy server as you mentioned. A PS3 will send your console ID in different queries (for example, when you try to login to PSN, when it fetches your act.dat, etc).
