1. Does a Proxy Server change your ip address... or not really change it but to someone else the ip address they recieve is the server's and not yours directly?

2. Will a proxy server slow down my connection speed?

3. Can I please get a brief explaination on what a proxy server does?

4. Also, can I please get a list of proxy servers or a great server that you would recommend?

PS: I am from Australia and have a cable connection... if that helps for a proxy.

Thank you,
JayBK.

A proxy server is a kind of buffer between your computer and the Internet resources you are accessing. The data you request come to the proxy first, and only then it transmits the data to you.

This may help you
