A server is a computer that provides services used by other computers. A Proxy Server is a server that acts as a go-between for requests from client machines and other servers. A proxy also hides the computers behind it. When you configure your computer/browser to use a proxy server, you are telling it to send all traffic to that server instead of going directly to the actual destination. In otherwords, the web browser contacts the proxy server for each web access instead of going directly to the target server. The proxy server then makes the request of the web server, receives a response and sends it back the information retrieved to your computer. For more information, see Proxy Servers and DMZ and What's a Proxy Server?.
In Internet Explorer, (Tools > Internet Options > Connections tab) the LAN Settings has several options:
- Automatically detect settings.
- Use automatic configuration script.
- Use a proxy server.
- Bypass proxy server for local addresses.
- Servers - This section will allow you to use the same proxy server for each of the protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, GOPHER, SOCKS) or assign different proxy servers for one or more proxy servers.
- Exceptions - If you want to add more addresses that Internet Explorer will not use the proxy server for you can enter them in this field seperated by semi-colons.
