Proxy servers and firewalls

Some institutions use proxy servers to network their environment.

A proxy server is a computer with a single IP address, which handles all internet traffic for a number of individual computers within an organisation.

A firewall is like a proxy server, with special software designed to protect the organisation from hackers and viruses.

Nature Portfolio permits the use of proxy server IP addresses on your registration, provided they serve only computers within your organisation and they do not exceed your access limit.
