How proxies work
What is a proxy server, and how do they work?

Proxies are store-and-forward caches. When you configure your web browser to use a proxy, it never connects to the URL. Instead, it always connects to the proxy server, and asks it to get the URL for you. Proxies can be used as a sort of firewall, because it isolates you from connecting to the Internet.

How does a proxy server work?

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.)

---------------------

But here is a clue.

Those people running proxy servers keep
a log of who does what and goes where.

So don´t think you are entirely invisible
because you use a proxy server.

If you want to remain invisible then get
off the internet.

Now, I know you´re probably stupid enough to push your luck and not heed this warning, asshole. I would dearly like to see your butt kicked, but a part of me still wants to advise you to stop doing it now. If you have any brain cells (and I know you´re a moron), then just take a word of advice: stop.
