What is a proxy and how it is used in the internet?
Question by Ramprakash: What is a proxy and how it is used in the internet?
Can anybody tell me something about proxy. I heard that, using proxy we can mask our original IP address. But i dont know a deep about it.
Also is it legal to use proxy?

A proxy is like a delivery boy.
You tell the ‘delivery boy’ that you want to see Google.
He goes and sees it, and then brings back the information to you.
However, the advantage is, Google doesn’t know WHO wanted to see it. They only know a delivery boy came and got their website information. So, you remain private.
They are slightly slower, but they are legal, AS LONG AS you’re not using them to hide the fact you’re breaking a law – for example, using a proxy to hide your information when you try to hack.
I find a good one, when I want privacy, is vtunnel.com or btunnel.com.
