What is the difference between a forward proxy and a reverse proxy?


James Hunt


By understanding the current interface content, you can better understand the difference between forward and reverse proxies.


The core difference lies in the object of the subject.


A forward agent is an agent client.


 A reverse proxy is a proxy server.


And based on this core distinction, we can also remember which side can hide and which side can hide.


In other words:


 Reference hides the real client.


 The reverse proxy hides the real service.

If the IP needs to be an e-commerce platform or social media, consider selecting roxlabs dedicated computer room IP. Fast IP, easy to set, unlimited traffic.
