Ip address

computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) which services the requests of its clients by forwarding requests to other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource, available from a different server. The proxy server provides the resource by connecting to the specified server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client’s request or the server’s response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server. In this case, it would ‘cache’ the first request to the remote server, so it could save the information for later, and make everything as fast as possible.

A proxy server that passes all requests and replies unmodified is usually called a gateway or sometimes tunneling proxy.
A proxy server can be placed in the user’s local computer or at specific key points between the user and the destination servers or the Internet.

Caching proxy server
A proxy server can service requests without contacting the specified server, by retrieving content saved from a previous request, made by the same client or even other clients. This is called caching. Caching proxies keep local copies of frequently requested resources, allowing large organizations and Internet Service Providers to significantly reduce their upstream bandwidth usage and cost, while significantly increasing performance. There are well-defined rules for caching. Some poorly-implemented caching proxies have had downsides (e.g., an inability to use user authentication). Some problems are described in RFC 3143 (Known HTTP Proxy/Caching Problems).

Web proxy
Proxies that focus on WWW traffic are called web proxies. Many web proxies attempt to block offensive web content. Other web proxies reformat web pages for a specific purpose or audience (e.g., cell phones and PDAs)
Access control: Some proxy servers implement a logon requirement. In large organizations, authorized users must log on to gain access to the ‘WWW.’ . The organization can thereby track usage to individuals.

1. Transparent Proxy Server
This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server and also makes the original IP address available through the http headers. These are generally used to speedup the web browsing since thay have a very good ability to cache websites.But they do not conceal the IP of it’s users. It is widely known as transparent proxy because it will expose your real IP address to the web.This type of proxy server does not hide your IP address.

2. Anonymous Proxy Server
This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server, but does not make the original IP address available. This type of proxy server is detectable, but provides reasonable anonymity for most users. This type of proxy server will hide your IP address.

3.Distorting Proxy Server
This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server, but makes an incorrect original IP address available through the http headers. This type of proxy server will hide your IP address.

4. High Anonymity Proxy Server ( Elite Proxy)
This type of proxy server does not identify itself as a proxy server and does not make available the original IP address. This type of proxy server will hide your IP address. So this is the best way to mask your IP.

There are software’s that will really hide your IP address. Here is a list of working IP Hiding software’s that you can try. I have listed below
