2. A proxy server is an intermediary between a Windows 10 PC or device and the Internet. This server makes requests for you to web sites, servers, and services on the Internet. For example, suppose you use a Web browser to access www.wiley.com and your browser is set up to use a proxy server.
3. Type www.wiley.com to send the request to the proxy server. The server then sends the request to the server hosting the site. The home page of the Wiley web site returns to the proxy server, which returns the home page to you.
One of the reasons companies use proxy servers is that doing so helps them save valuable bandwidth. Proxy servers can compress traffic from the Internet, cache files and web pages, and even remove ads from web sites before they reach your computer. This allows companies to save bandwidth, especially if they have hundreds of thousands of employees visiting nearly the same popular sites (CNN News or the New York Times, for example). Other benefits include improved security and privacy.
