View Full Version : [ubuntu] A proxy question

June 20th, 2008, 09:30 PM
Hi all ! :) I'm not sure if this is the right place for this topic..
If a proxy is used , does it apply to all protocols like TCP ( not only HTTP when surfing on the web ) , or there are specific proxies for different uses?
I'm sorry - the topic isn't for Ubuntu - I had to put it in " all variants "

The term proxy is only used for application level protocols..

you can have ftp or http proxies, and others

but not for tcp :)

google for tunneling (ip through x)
