Definitions for "Proxy Server"
A computer that verifies that an off-campus user seeking to access a restricted resource in IRIS is a current UNL student, faculty or staff member. Directions for using the proxy server
A machine or program that stands as a go-between for other computers. Your client connects to the proxy, which then connects to the web page you want to access. Pages that have already been accessed by another user are cached, and so popular pages can load much more quickly when using a proxy. Also, the page you are connecting to sees the connection as coming from the proxy rather than your computer, so a layer of privacy is introduced.
A proxy server is a computer connected to the Internet that will accept requests from computers without direct connection that wish to access the Internet.
