How to Set Up a Proxy Server on Your Mac Using SquidMan
This guide will teach you how to set up a proxy server on macOS using SquidMan.
What's a proxy server?
A proxy server is a computer that sits between a user and the Internet, and when using a proxy, all traffic between the end user and any website they visit is channeled through the proxy server. There are a number of reasons to use a proxy server, and one common reason is to make it look like traffic is coming from the proxy server's location, not the end user's location. This can give users access to content that is restricted by location. Proxies can also provide other functionality like data encryption, caching, network optimizations, and more.
