How does the proxy masquerade the IP?

  Many people say that the proxy can spoof the IP. What is the principle and why can it be spoofed? How does the proxy spoof the IP?

How does the proxy masquerade the IP?

  1. How does the proxy disguise IP

  Proxy actually refers to a proxy server, called proxy server in English, and its function is to proxy network users to obtain network information. To put it vividly, it is a transit point for network information. When we normally request a website, we send the request to the web server, and the web server sends the response back to us.

  If a proxy server is set, a bridge is actually built between the machine and the server. At this time, the machine does not directly initiate a request to the web server, but sends a request to the proxy server. The request will be sent to the proxy server, and then The proxy server then sends it to the Web server, and then the proxy server forwards the response returned by the Web server to the machine.

  In this way, we can also access the webpage normally, but the real IP recognized by the web server in this process is no longer our local IP, and IP masquerading is successfully realized. This is the basic principle of proxy.

  2. The degree to which the agent hides its own IP

  Different proxies have different abilities to hide their own IP. This is based on the degree of anonymity:

  1. Spy agent

  refers to a proxy server created by an organization or individual to record the data transmitted by the user, and then conduct research, monitoring and other purposes.

  2. Highly anonymous

  will forward the data packet intact, from the server’s point of view, it looks like an ordinary client is really visiting, and the recorded IP is the IP of the proxy server.

  3. Ordinary anonymous

  will make some changes on the data packet, the server may find that this is a proxy server, and there is a certain chance to trace the real IP of the client.

  4. Transparent proxy

  not only changes the data packet, but also tells the server the real IP of the client. This kind of proxy has no other significant effects except that it can use caching technology to improve browsing speed and content filtering to improve security. The most common example is a hardware firewall in an intranet.

  If you want to spoof your IP, one effective way is to use Tomato Acceleration. The highly anonymous proxy IP meets the needs of users, and it has a large amount of IP resources, which can be used safely and securely.
