When we couldn’t access some websites sometimes, proxy is an effective way for us to enter blocked websites. There are two kinds of proxies. First, there are web proxies which have an interactive interface. Second, the proxy servers work on the basis of IP addresses and port numbers.
If you wish to visit your blocked website using a web proxy, you don’t need to setup. However, if you wish to use a proxy server, you must configure your browser to use it. Follow the instructions given below to setup this type of proxy in usual browser, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
For Google Chrome and Internet Explorer Users:
Google Chrome uses the same network settings as Internet Explorer. Therefore, in order to configure Google Chrome to use a proxy server, we have to configure Internet Explorer. We can configure a proxy server in Internet Explorer by following the instructions given below:
- Start Internet Explorer.
- Click on Tools, Internet Options.
- Click on Connections Tab, select your Network Connection and click on Settings.
- Check on Use a Proxy Server for this Connection.
- In the Address field, add the IP Address of your Proxy server. In the Port field, enter the Port Number.
- Click on OK and OK again.
For Mozilla Firefox Users:
Mozilla Firefox users can configure their browser to use a proxy by following the instructions given below:
- Start Mozilla Firefox.
- Click on Tools, Options.
- Click on Advanced Tab.
- Click on Network tab.
- Click on Settings.
- Encircle Manual proxy configuration.
- Enter the IP Address and Port Number at the appropriate place. In most cases, it will be a HTTP Proxy.
After you have successfully configured your browser to use the proxy server, you will be able to access blocked websites whenever you browse the internet with your browser.
