    What is a Proxy Server?

    A proxy server is a computer that offers a computer network service to allow clients to make indirect network connections to other network services. A client connects to the proxy server, then requests a connection, file, or other resource available on a different server. The proxy provides the resource either by connecting to the specified server or by serving it from a cache. In some cases, the proxy may alter the client's request or the server's response for various purposes.


    You may see references to four different types of proxy servers:

    Transparent Proxy

    This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server and also makes the original IP address available through the http headers. These are generally used for their ability to cache websites and do not effectively provide any anonymity to those who use them. However, the use of a transparent proxy will get you around simple IP bans. They are transparent in the terms that your IP address is exposed, not transparent in the terms that you do not know that you are using it (your system is not specifically configured to use it.)
    Anonymous Proxy

    This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server, but does not make the original IP address available. This type of proxy server is detectable, but provides reasonable anonymity for most users.
    Distorting Proxy

    This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server, but make an incorrect original IP address available through the http headers.
    High Anonymity Proxy

    This type of proxy server does not identify itself as a proxy server and does not make available the original IP address.
