Discussion in 'Proxies' started by tweets, Jun 12, 2013.
Forgive me guys, I'm new to IM and I would like to know what a proxy is and what is it used for?
Simply said, It masks your ip.
Imagine you are using a german proxy. When some site checks your IP, it seems the german IP instead of yours. So everything you do is under the radar.
Its basically a mask which masks your IP.
If you visit a site, your browser connects to a remote computer(proxy) which visits the site, and returns whats in there. In the end, it would be like it was the remote computer who visited the site, and not really you. I hope I amnt making this complex.
A proxy server is an intermediary computer that sits between your computer and the internet. Some types of proxy server will hide your IP address and forward your request.

What is google?
Are you serious OP?!:drillserg
All you have to do is SEARCH and you will find a plethora of the information your looking for. Google it if you have to.
...and to those of you that sat there and just fed the OP the answer should have known better.
All your doing is encouraging the OP to open another thread asking, "How do I add a proxy?"
This is BHW, not Gerber Inc.

Proxy is basically the agent which helps the internet user to make the I.P. invisible sometimes. This is the middle man of the user & server.
