Forward Proxy

This term must have been heard by many of us in our college where it means impersonating(a fake person acts as if he is the real one). In computing terms, a forward proxy is the another system which impersonates you on a network or on the internet. This system can be a server or simply a system based on the network requirements. A forward proxy server can fullfil the task of VPN but a VPN can extend your anonymity to the next level.
