Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Proxy servers, part of CompTIA A+ (220-902) Cert Prep: 4 Virtualization Printers and Troubleshooting.
- I do a lot of business with high schools…and community colleges all over the United States.…And one of the things that these organizations…are worried about is people looking and doing things…on the internet that they shouldn't be doing.…So to help protect themselves,…we have this special device called a proxy server.…A proxy server, well it could be a lot of things,…but it's often some kind of box.…Do we have a kind of picture?…Here we go.…There's an example of a proxy server.…And these boxes sit between,…here's my network and here's the big internet.…We plug these boxes in in such a way…that they filter out all the traffic.…
Now proxy servers do a great job…and they're extremely popular all over the world.…But if you're going to be in a network with a proxy server,…you're gonna have to make special settings.…Proxy servers work with applications.…So every application that you have that gets on the internet…has to be configured for a proxy server.…Now, on the Aplus, I'm pretty sure…what they're gonna be talking about…
