A proxy server acts as a go-between for clients seeking services and servers that provide them. The proxy server filters client requests and if the requests meet the proxy server filtering rules, it grants the request and allows the connection.
A proxy server has two main purposes:
- To keep any devices behind it anonymous for security purposes.
- To cache content from resources, such as Web pages from a Web server, to increase resource access time.
IMPORTANT: You must know the login information in order to perform this procedure. If necessary, contact your System Administrator for additional assistance.
