Windows Server 2008 configuration IE using proxy steps


1.1.1 Configuring IE to use a proxy

What is a proxy server?

A proxy server is a computer that mediates between a web browser (such as Internet Explorer) and the Internet. Proxy servers improve web performance by storing frequently used copies of web pages.

When a browser requests a web page stored in a proxy server's collection (its cache), the web page is served by a proxy server, which is faster than entering the web. The proxy server also improves security by filtering out certain web content and malware. The famous agent software is Microsoft's ISA 2006 and CCproxy.

Proxy servers are mostly used by networks in organizations and companies. Typically, people who connect to the Internet from home do not use a proxy server.
