List Of Free Proxy Software and Web Proxy Servers To Browse Anonymously

Proxy server is a middle man acting between your computer and the web server. For example if you are accessing Google from your computer using a proxy named X, your computer is not receiving information directly from Google but X is receiving services and send it back to your computer. So naturally the web server does not know your computer and it thinks it served X. So by using a proxy server, theoretically you can browse anonymously and also help you to bypass firewall restrictions too. This guide gives a short introduction of Proxy Servers with a number of popular server addresses. There are two types of Proxy services.
  1. client based (Software Installed on your PC)

  2. Web based proxy servers (No is software installed on your PC)
If you are expecting high anonymity, you must go for premium servers but for normal users web based proxy server is enough. Here I give a list of free popular servers.

Working

Proxy servers are iterating between your computer and rest of the Internet. The request from your computer goes to the proxy server and it resubmits the request to the actual destination. So they will get the IP address of the proxy server instead of your computer's IP address and your privacy will not be compromised. The same principle is used for bypassing the firewall. The firewall detects the address of proxy server instead of the blocked website. So the packets will go through the firewall.

Your computer------------->Proxy Server------->Website


Major Uses

There are two kind of uses from a real proxy server.
  1. Hiding your Identity in the Internet

  2. Bypassing restrictions


Advanced Services


Proxy servers has many uses other than just an anonymous surfing and bypassing the firewall restrictions. In a large enterprises proxy server is associated with a gateway server that separates the enterprise network from the outside network and protects the enterprise network from outside intrusion. That means a good proxy server can act as a firewall. It can also act as a cache and so virtually the Internet speed can be increased.


Types Of Proxy Servers

They are classified according to the way, they operates.
  1. Caching

  2. Web based

  3. Content-filtering

  4. Hostile

  5. Intercepting

  6. Transparent and non-transparent



Testing a Proxy

It is better you check your IP address when you are using proxy server to detect how much anonymous you are. So of the IP address checking tools I use are:
  1. http://www.ipaddresslocation.org/

  2. http://www.ip-adress.com/
