PROXY SERVER

PROXY SERVER

In a computer network, a proxy server is any computer system offering a service that acts as an intermediary between the two communicating parties, the client and the server.
In the presence of a proxy server, there is no direct communication between the client and the server. Instead, the client connects to the proxy server and sends requests for resources such as a document, web page or a file that resides on a remote server. The proxy server handles this request by fetching the required resources from the remote server and forwarding the same to the client.
