How proxy works

  1. 1. How Proxy Works By: Taqi Shah taqi.shajee@gamil.com
  2. 2. Regular browsing • In a regular case your web browser connects to the web site directly. Thus revealing quite a lot of sensitive information. An orange arrow denotes this case in the block scheme.
  3. 3. Proxy Browsing • To change this situation Proxy Switcher was written. It can be used to find working anonymous proxy servers and redirect requests through them.
  4. 4. How Proxy Software Works • Proxy server is an application or a computer system that acts as an agent or channel for requests from clients looking for resources from other servers. • Client connects to the proxy server with a service (web, files or any other resources) and proxy server sends that request to the server on behalf of the client. • There are many software and applications available on the internet which can be used to setup a proxy server.
  5. 5. How Proxy Software Works • A proxy basically tells your computer to send all requests somewhere else instead of to your ISP. That proxy will then decide whether or not to send you the page you requested. • So in effect, you are simply bypassing your school proxy, or bypassing your ISP proxy and replacing it with another one.
  6. 6. Possible Usage Scenario • If you get banned on the forum - use Proxy Switcher to fake your IP and avoid the ban. • If you are a webmaster that wants to check Geotargetting of some sites (i.e. Google). • Just want to hide your IP when visiting some sites which you might not want to record your IP address.
