What is a proxy server?
A proxy server helps match incoming Internet traffic with outgoing requests and is in a position to also cache the files that are received for later recall by any user. When the server receives a request for an Internet service (such as a Web page request) from a user. It looks in its local cache of previously downloaded Web pages. If it finds the page, it returns it to the user without needing to forward the request to the Internet. If the page is not in the cache, the proxy server, acting as a client on behalf of the user, uses one of its own IP addresses to request the page from the server out on the Internet. When the page is returned, the proxy server relates it to the original request and forwards it on to the user.To the user, the proxy and cache servers are invisible; all Internet requests and returned responses appear to be coming from the addressed place on the Internet.
So what do you need to do?
You do not need to specify any proxy settings, this is done dynamically when you log in.
