Proxy server overview

When connecting to the Internet usually your terminal is receiving data directly by accessing a nodes outside the school.

This method can leak some information from your terminal to the outside, which is not recommended in terms of safety.

 

 

 

On the other hand, when going through a proxy server, it goes to acquire data from outside the university.
Since the proxy server exchanges information on your behalf, your terminal information will never be subjected to outside and security is safer.

Since the Proxy server stores the received public common information, if the requested information already stored in the server, it will return the stored information without accessing outside the campus. This also has the advantage of faster access.
