Introduction to Proxy
A proxy is a common word in today's world. But still most of us not aware of the exact meaning of Proxy or Proxy Server or Proxy Software. Let us know what is a proxy server. A proxy server is a server in computer networks, which acts as a mediator or an intermediary between client and server. Using a proxy server, clients ask for various resources from other servers. When a client connects to a proxy server seeking some service (resources, file, web page etc) from a different server, then the proxy server processes the requests and makes it simple from the complexity. All the data that client browses on the internet goes to proxy server cache and then the required data reaches to the client's computer. Nowadays, most of the proxies are web proxies providing access to content on world wide web.
