A proxy server is an application or system that plays an intermediary role between users and other servers. When a user requests some service, the proxy server analyzes the request with the aim of simplifying and controlling its complexity. This application serves as a proxy server that lets you block certain pages and prevent users from accessing unwanted websites. Essentially, the application limits user access and blocks pop-ups and banners.
The utility can be particularly useful for experienced network administrators since it provides them total control over each network parameter. The application provides a step by step guide to enable you to edit various parameters using special syntax. For instance, you can modify certain elements of web pages to minimize bandwidth consumption and ensure that users access relevant content only.
