FreeProxy is a system which enables two or more users to share an Internet connection. Originally released as far back as 1999, it is still a viable tool for both business and personal requirements. There are a number of different proxy services available and these are often chosen based upon the operating system as well as the type of desired connection.

Core Features and Functions

FreeProxy can be used as a general communications and data-sharing tool while it also serves as a means to effectively filter specific URLs. Although not necessarily a virtual private network (VPN) server, it can still offer a basic level of protection in the event that a user is concerned about possible data theft. The majority of those who have downloaded this service are individuals although it is not uncommon for small- to medium-sized businesses to employ its network-sharing capabilities.

Additional Benefits

FreeProxy was voted as being the best proxy server in 2007 by PC magazine and it is estimated that well over 500,000 downloads have already taken place since its release. Some proxy choices include HTTP, SOCKS, FTP, POP3 and SMTP. It is primarily meant to be used with 32-bit versions of Windows; particularly older systems such as Windows XP and Windows Vista.

FreeProxy is professional Freeware which channels requests for internet pages via a single computer and enables many computers to share an internet connection. If you have dial-up internet access, you can use the Demand Dial or Auto-Dial feature to dial up the internet either when it detects you want to access the internet (demand) or maintain a strict schedule of connection times (auto). It also works with Cable/Broadband.

If you would like to prevent access to certain internet sites, FreeProxy enables you to block access based on a filter. Comprehensive \'Resource Security\' enables you to filter URLs, IP addresses, ports, hosts accessed. In addition you can secure access using userid and password. FreeProxy utilises the web standards of Basic and Digest authentication but also allows you to authenticate users to a Windows Domain. Access can be limited to certain times using a calendar.
