The Proxy Menu

A proxy server is a system, located between a client (who requests a web page or some resource) and the outside networks with the purpose to catch all the client’s requests, retrieve the requested resources, and transmit them to the client. The main advantage of a proxy server is its ability to cache (i.e., to store locally) all the pages that have been requested, making future requests of the same pages faster.

The Endian 4i Edge Appliance features a DNS proxy, based on dnsmasq, that provides also anti-spyware functionalities, based on the information contained in the phishtank web site, a community-driven site devoted to inform and keep users updated about sources of phishing on the Internet.
