    A proxy server is used as a gateway to the net. It prevents people on the net from seeing the IP addresses of the users, as the Proxy server says that all information comes from itself.

    Proxy servers can be used for

    1. Firewalling from outside

    2. Preventing internal users from accessing the net

    3. Using a different addressing scheme in the intranet for IP sddress saving,

    etc etc
