In some conditions, often we can not open a web page. It is not always caused by the website that we are headed is down, but it could be because of our access to open the website constrained.
There are many reasons why our access is limited, probably due to the policy of the Internet service provider, the age limit, the error on the ISP, bandwidth limitations and so on. Like for example we use the internet at work or school, sometimes we could not open friendster.com, facebook.com, YouTube.com, Gmail.com, MySpace.com, Yahoo Messenger and others.
To overcome this, we can use a proxy server to open the web page.
What is a proxy server is that?
A proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) that acts as a go-between for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers.
proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) that acts as an intermediary to convey the client's request seeking the source of the other servers.
The easiest way is to use a proxy server service online, for example: www.hidemyass.com. By using this service, we do not need to do the internet connection settings are sometimes confusing and we can surf anonymously. We simply open the page www.hidemyass.com, then we type web pages instantly we wanted to visit.
Its a little uncomfortable is that we must give up most of our browser for the banner page. It's okey, because they also need to finance the cost of this free service.
If we do not want our yard was cut by a banner, we can use the other way is to set up the Internet connection using a proxy. Regarding the proxy server settings for Internet explorer and firefox will be discussed in another article.
