Sorry guys but i have to ask a very basic question about something. Are proxies and firewalls the same thing??
If not what are their differences. For example to connect to the internet you will sometimes need to specify any proxy in a browser used but is it the same for firewalls as well??
Another question i have is on proxies. Ther are three main different kind of proxies http, https and ftp. Given this proxy name
proxy.woll.com.au how would you know what type of proxy it is whether its a http, https or ftp proxy.
If it is of no inconvinience i hope someone can list some examples of http, https or ftp proxies so i roughly know what they are like.
Any help is greatly appreciated
