Proxy and Internet Service Provider
« on: March 06, 2010, 08:39:10 AM »
Hello

I know that when I am using a proxy, my IP address is modified.

But what is the configuration between my PC, my Internet Supplier and the proxy and the web.

Is it :
1/  PC----Internet supplier ------Proxy----Web
or
2 / PC----Proxy------Internet supplier----Web

In the first situation the Web don’t know me, but my supplier know what I am doing.
In the second one, how is it possible to connect to the proxy without using first my internet supplier.

Sorry for this question, but I saw the 2 configurations on the web.
Thank you.

Terry

PC <--> Internet Service Provider <--> Proxy <--> Web Server

Yes, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) knows what you are doing on the Internet.

arghh...!

That means that my ISP know that I'm using  µTorrent and  I'm loading Torrents... That means It is not safe? 
Where is the anonymity..and security?

And.... Is there any protection (encryption for example) on your forum about IP address or address email of the user of the forum?

Thank you.

In fact your ISP doesn't know you are using uTorrent. They can only see you receive many data packages from different IPs and send data to them meanwhile. So ISP can guess you are using a P2P software.

ISP usually won't monitor its users' activity because there is huge amount of data to analyze.

Most serious websites such as PayPal use the encrypted (SSL/Https) connection  between the user and its server. Thus no one can know the sensitive data you sent or received.
