it's a word i read so often, but i have no idea what it means.
have proxy in
is my personal favourite
she can retake them at college
That sounds awful :-(
could understand and digest.
well, i'm not a novice. maybe an intermediate..
usually something separating one thing from something else.
a proxy war is when countries use 3rd party substitutes to fight each other...like the usa and russia in afghanistan
in internet speak its like a sort of net, often set up at schools or by your service provider to stop you accessing certain things online...
just a term for an "indirect connection" I think. Say like I want to get on myspace at college....
- I try to go on myspace, it's banned
- So I got a proxy server (say www.78y.net)
- Enter the myspace web address in there
- Hey presto I can get on, because 78y is connecting to myspace, and sending the information to me.
So I'm connected but indirectly, and hey presto I can perv on people in lesson.
