In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) 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 resource, available from a different server. The proxy server evaluates the request according to its filtering rules. For example, it may filter traffic by IP address or protocol. If the request is validated by the filter, the proxy provides the resource by connecting to the relevant server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client's request or the server's response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server. In this case, it 'caches' responses from the remote server, and returns subsequent requests for the same content directly.
A proxy server has a large variety of potential purposes, including:
1: To keep machines behind it anonymous (mainly for security.
2: To speed up access to resources (using caching). Web proxies are commonly used to cache web pages from a web server.
3: To apply access policy to network services or content, e.g. to block undesired sites
4: To log / audit usage, i.e. to provide company employee Internet usage reporting
5: To bypass security/ parental controls

Unable to connect proxy server. How do I remove the proxy?

I guess I'd need just a bit more information. Are you not able to connect to anything or are you seeing popups you don't want? Have you scanned your system for viruses? If you can not remove the proxy then there are several possibilities.

1st - Make sure you are logged in as the admin of the system you are trying to make changes on.
2nd - check for viruses.
3rd - if no viruses, make sure that you haven't been "browser highjacked". This can happen several ways. A big indicator of this is that your browser can be removed/changed/or otherwise modified but it continues to go back to a specific browser proxy. The reason is sometimes located in your "scheduled tasks" Look for things that are obviously not correct. In particular, anything that sets your proxy or runs an unrecognized dll.

Tried several proxy sites to log in my fb account...still unable....almost all d sites have been blocked...solution please...

Go to network settings, where it asks to choose proxy automaticially, make sure the box is checked. Otherwise if you know the router's ip address you can try and go directly to ip address instead of website. Let me know if you need more info

I want to unblock my facebook website. It was blocked. How do i do that??

Facebook can be unblocked by using proxies. Proxies are nothing but an application which will mask your IP address and override your IP address. In simple terms, it will show as if you are browsing from a different IP address rather from your original IP address.

Proxies are of two types.

1. Web based proxies - You don't need to install anything in your pc. Highly recommended for schools, offices, universities and so on.
2. Desktop Programs - You need to install a small software and you need to have administrator rights to install the software.

Proxies will also bypass firewall applications and website blockers and hence you don't need to worry about any website getting blocked. There are many more applications of proxies and let us restrict it to unblocking Facebook alone.

My proxy is not functioning...i just want to know what are the programs or any software can fix it...can you help me please?

proxy... this is not a 'service/program' that end users can work with or fix. hell 80%+ of the globe don't even know what it is...
how do you know it's broken? or have you jumbled a word out of context here?
your Router (wifi point if you will); does not perform Proxy features; your internet provider might do... so if you genuinely do mean "Proxy"; then speak to your internet service provider on this issue.

Cant pull up facebook login psge

You may be behind a network or firewall that is blocking access to facebook. You should try accessing the site through a Facebook Proxy Server. I know of two really good ones, Facebook Login Proxy and Facebook Proxy Sever.

If this dosn't help you can find more Facebook login help at .
