    Do you know that there are different types of proxy servers that someone can use to do some harm to another person or a website? understanding the type of proxy server will help you to control spamming. the post below will help you to understand the different types of proxy servers that there is and what they mean.

    Different Types of Proxy servers


    1. Transparent Proxy

    This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server and also makes the original IP address available through the HTTP headers. These are generally used for their ability to cache websites and do not effectively provide any anonymity to those who use them. However, the use of a transparent proxy will get you around simple IP bans. They are transparent in the terms that your IP address is exposed, not transparent in the terms that you do not know that you are using it (your system is not specifically configured to use it.)

    2. Anonymous Proxy
    This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server but does not make the original IP address available. This type of proxy server is detectable but provides reasonable anonymity for most users.

    3. Distorting Proxy
    This type of proxy server identifies itself as a proxy server but make an incorrect original IP address available through the HTTP headers. this is dangerous because you may block the IP address provided and it won't affect the actual IP address of the spammer.

    4. High Anonymity Proxy
    This type of proxy server does not identify itself as a proxy server and does not make available the original IP address. Used by big time attackers.
