A server that sits between a client application, such as a Web browser, and a real server
. It intercepts all requests to the real server to see if it can fulfill the requests itself. If not, it forwards the request to the real server.

Proxy servers have two main purposes:

# Improve Performance: Proxy servers can dramatically improve performance for groups of users. This is because it saves the results of all requests for a certain amount of time. Consider the case where both user X and user Y access the World Wide Web through a proxy server. First user X requests a certain Web page, which we'll call Page 1. Sometime later, user Y requests the same page. Instead of forwarding the request to the Web server where Page 1 resides, which can be a time-consuming operation, the proxy server simply returns the Page 1 that it already fetched for user X. Since the proxy server is often on the same network as the user, this is a much faster operation. Real proxy servers support hundreds or thousands of users. The major online services
such as America Online, MSN and Yahoo, for example, employ an array of proxy servers.

# Filter Requests: Proxy servers can also be used to filter requests. For example, a company might use a proxy server to prevent its employees from accessing a specific set of Web sites.

A proxy server receives a request for an Internet service (such as a Web page request) from a user. If it passes filtering requirements, the proxy server, assuming it is also a cache server , looks in its local cache of previously downloaded Web pages. If it finds the page, it returns it to the user without needing to forward the request to the Internet. If the page is not in the cache, the proxy server, acting as a client on behalf of the user, uses one of its own IP addresses to request the page from the server out on the Internet. When the page is returned, the proxy server relates it to the original request and forwards it on to the user.

To the user, the proxy server is invisible; all Internet requests and returned responses appear to be directly with the addressed Internet server. (The proxy is not quite invisible; its IP address has to be specified as a configuration option to the browser or other protocol program.)

An advantage of a proxy server is that its cache can serve all users. If one or more Internet sites are frequently requested, these are likely to be in the proxy's cache, which will improve user response time. In fact, there are special servers called cache servers. A proxy can also do logging.

The functions of proxy, firewall, and caching can be in separate server programs or combined in a single package. Different server programs can be in different computers. For example, a proxy server may in the same machine with a firewall server or it may be on a separate server and forward requests through the firewall.

I want websites to download rise of nation to download free

You could try this link, your internet service shouldn't block this link, as it is run through a proxy. This torrent does work, I have tested it. When the game asks you for the 25 digit code, just paste this in C3Q3F-YB2H8-2YCW9-97TV7-24668
Hope you like it! :D

When i try to log in to tootown there is an error message there was a problem verifying the account id. my clock is set to the right firewall is proxy is using a windows 7 computer....


The problem is about the verification of you account ID. So it doesn't have anything to do with your system setup. Do you already have an account ID there? IF not yet then you need to sign up first. If you already have an account ID, make sure you typed the correct Account ID and password in order to Login into your account.

I hope this helped you.

Official ToonTown response:

Dear Toontown Guest,

Thank you for your bug report.

If you are downloading an older version of Toontown, you may need to
remove old files or controls that are temporarily saved to your machine
in order to update the game.

To correct the problem, you will need to delete the ActiveX control.
This will force you to download the most recent ActiveX control
available the next time you play.

To delete the current ActiveX controls, please complete the following:

First let's try clearing your cache files within your browser. Within
Microsoft(R) Internet Explorer 5.0 and later, cache is referred to as
Temporary Internet Files. It is recommended that these files be removed
regularly. To remove Temporary Internet Files:

1)Double-click the Internet Explorer icon
2)Click Tools on the menu bar
3)Select Internet Options
4)Click the General tab (furthest to the left)
5)Click the Delete Files button (halfway down the screen)
6)Click the OK button
7)Click Yes

To remove cookies, do the following:

1)Click the Settings button on the General tab.
2)Click View Files.
3)Find any cookies that contain the words "GO" or "Disney" or
4)Click once on the cookie and then press the delete key on your

To remove the ActiveX control, do the following:

1)Click the Setting button on the General tab
2)Click View Objects
3)Find the Toontown Installer ActiveX Object, right click and select
4)Click OK

If this does not solve your problem, the files may be stored at your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or somewhere in between (i.e. your
Internet proxy). When this is the case, the only thing that can be done
is to wait for a periodic update by your ISP or Internet proxy. Updates
can occur as often as every day, however, this will depend on your
particular ISP.

We are currently working on a fix for this that will be posted to the
website soon.

Please also ensure that any other security software (Anti-Spam, Popup
Blocker, Anti-Virus, Firewall, Proxy, Script-Blocker, Age-Restriction)
is configured to allow Toontown test to connect to the internet.

We know you had a problem accessing the test site but we really need to
have the log files from the test game to address test serve issues.

We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to seeing your
Toons in the Toontown Central Playground!

Thank You,
