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.
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.
