proxy server

A server that acts on behalf of one or more other servers, usually for screening, firewall, or caching purposes, or a combination of these purposes. Also called a gateway. Typically, a proxy server is used within a company or enterprise to gather all Internet requests, forward them out to Internet servers, and then receive the responses and in turn forward them to the original requester within the company.
