Proxy Servers

Computer proxy: How many do you need? If you are doing well, not getting access denied errors, or running 2-3 tasks without any problem, then you don’t need to use proxies. If your firewall allows, it’s better to use 1 proxy for each account, but you can still use 2 accounts per proxy.

Note: Shareholders in corporations may designate a proxy to represent them at stockholders’ meetings and vote their shares. If you want someone to sell your 45 million shares of sow bellies stock, be sure you get the right proxy. “Pork bellies were traded in the futures market, as they are important components of meat products, such as bacon. Trading in pork bellies futures began in 1961 on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), and allowed meat packers to hedge the volatile pig market.”

“In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resources available from a different server and the proxy server evaluates the request as a way to simplify and control its complexity. Proxies were invented to add structure and encapsulation to distributed systems. Today, most proxies are web proxies, facilitating access to content on the World Wide Web, providing anonymity and may be used to bypass IP address blocking.”
