What is a Proxy Server?A proxy server is a computer system or an application program that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other websites. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource, available from a different server. The proxy server evaluates the request according to its filtering rules. If the request is validated by the filter, the proxy provides the resource by connecting to the relevant server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client's request or the server's response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server known as caching *.
A proxy server has a large variety of potential purposes, including:
- Anonymity: to keep machines behind it anonymous.
- Caching: to speed up browsing. Web proxies are commonly used to cache web pages from a web server.
- Access Policy: to apply access policy to network services or content, e.g. to block undesired sites.
- Logging and Reporting
- Bypass: to bypass security/ parental controls, to allow access from countries that restrict internet access.
- Content Filtering: to scan transmitted content for viruses and malware.
- Resource Protection: To scan outbound content to prevent private company data to leak outside.
- Circumvention: To remove regional restrictions.
A proxy server can be placed in the user's local computer or at various points between the user and the destination servers on the Internet.
