In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) which services the requests of its clients by forwarding requests to other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource, available from a different server. The proxy server provides the resource by connecting to the specified server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client's request or the server's response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server. In this case, it would 'cache' the first request to the remote server, so it could save the information for later, and make everything as fast as possible. A proxy server that passes all requests and replies unmodified is usually called a gateway or sometimes tunneling proxy. A proxy server can be placed in the user's local computer or at specific key points between the user and the destination servers or the Internet.

Proxt Fight

If Microsoft decides to establish a proxy battle, it would appoint a slate of directors to go command of Yahoo's panel and back the party's proposition. The nominees would be voted on at Yahoo's yearly stockholder encounter in June. A Yahoo-Microsoft proxy battle would be the largest joint proxy battle in the eight years FactSet SharkWatch has been tracking statistics on this, it said.

Microsoft would too risk alienating Yahoo's rank-and-file by taking an unfriendly maneuver. Unlike manufacturing companies with stationary assets, an important Yahoo asset is its technology gift, and an unfriendly access by Microsoft could head to an exodus of Yahoo gift to Google Inc or new Web rivals. Later on Tuesday, Yahoo announced that it had place in spot severance benefits that would be given to all employees who might be laid away if the party was sold.

In a securities filing, Yahoo said if an employee is dismissed without better cause within two years of difference of command in the party, employees would remain to obtain their yearly home wage and sure benefits for at least four months and up to 24 months depending on their stance. "It's just national posturing," said Brenon Daly, an analyst at the 451 Group. A party targeted for acquisition will frequently offer "gilded parachutes" to go maintenance of their employees when the party is in drama, according to Daly.

Microsoft has said it can squeeze away $1 billion in price savings and revenue benefits from the Yahoo acquisition. Analysts require some of the savings to go from a decrease in overlapping areas between the two companies. Microsoft shares drop 14 cents, or 0. 5 percentage, to end at $28. 17 on the Nasdaq. The fund is downward 14 percentage since the offering for Yahoo went national.

Yahoo shed 65 cents, or 2.2 percent, to $29.01. The value of Microsoft's cash-and-stock offer now stands at $28.90.
