What is Proxy Server & What is SOCKS Proxy Server

A proxy server is a server that retrieves Web pages for you, providing only its own identity to the sites it visits. Requesting data comes first to the proxy, and through the requested proxy, the data is transmitted to you.

Anonymous proxy server hide your IP address and hide information about you and your interests. Besides that, anonymous proxy server can help in the cases when, for example, the owners of the Internet resource force some limitation on users from certain countries, cities, geographic regions or even restrictions on some IP address ranges.

SOCKS is a protocol for handling traffic through a proxy server. It can be used with virtually any TCP/UDP application, including Web browsers and FTP clients. It provides a simple firewall because it checks incoming and outgoing packets and hides the IP addresses of client applications. Using Socks proxy is a good solution for internet anonymity and security.

There are two types of Socks proxy protocols: Socks 4 and Socks 5. Socks 4 proxy will allow working with TCP protocols only, like HTTP (web browsing via IE, Opera, Firefox, Safari), NNTP newsgroup access, IRC. Socks 5 proxy is more advanced, allowing to anonymize UDP protocols as well (ICQ for example) Many popular applications support SOCKS proxies: Firefox, Google Chrome, Thunderbird, Safari.

SOCKS proxies can be tunneled easily with a tool such as Proxychains(Linux) and Proxifier(Windows).
