Transparent proxy pass your IP address and indicates that you are using a proxy. A transparent proxy is normally located between the client and the Internet. You can know your true IP address without any problem, because it is stored in the HTTP header named REMOTE_ADDR. Transparent Proxy changes an IP, but at the same time shows the user’s real address IP. Transparent proxy performing some of the functions of a gateway or router. The transparent proxy servers modify your IP adress to their own one but your real IP is still presented in the http request.
All proxy servers, that hide a client’s IP address in any way are called anonymous proxies. Anonymous proxy (anonymous proxy), hides your real IP address, variables REMOTE_ADDR and HTTP_VIA have the IP address of the proxy, but you are not completely anonymous, because you can find your IP address in the HTTP header named HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR. These proxies are the most widespread among other anonymous proxy servers. Anonymous proxy servers do not transfer the information about your real IP address but the http server knows the request is ralayed by a proxy.
These proxy servers are called “high anonymity proxy” or “elite proxy”. Highly anonymous proxy makes you completely anonymous because he believe the site that you visit, that the IP address that you use is yours. No HTTP header has your IP address, anonymity is therefore guaranteed. This is the most interesting proxy. Higly Anonymous proxy servers are the most secure ones. Higly Anonymous proxy have all advantages of anonymous proxy server in the subject of privacy and they are TRYING to hide the fact of using proxy servers for connection.
