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.

Proxy war in Red zone

ELPAHARI (WEST MIDNAPORE): Ripples of Nepal politics seem to have reached the shores of this “not-so-developed’ district of South Bengal. Even as the Indian Maoists have repudiated Prachanda’s tryst with multi-party democracy, persons having strong Maoist links are contesting the panchayat elections on various party tickets. And this, despite the Maoists’ vote boycott call like in the earlier elections.

Kajal Sardar is a case in point. Sardar’s name was on the West Bengal Police’s “list of most wanted” till a few days ago for her Maoist activities. The same is true for Kalachand Kisku, who served a seven-month jail term for his Maoist links. They are contesting the panchayat elections on Congress ticket. Kisku is fighting from the Bhulabheda gram panchayat.

Instances are galore. Ananda Mura of Banspahari was put behind the bars for nine months for his involvement in violence triggered by the Maoists. Dipak Sardar — another known Maoist activist now out on bail — is the Congress candidate from Banspahari.

There are at least three suspected Maoists on the Jharkhand Party (Naren)’s list of candidates. Even CPM, the worst victim of Maoist actions in the district, has fielded a woman from a family with Maoist links from the the Velaidiha panchayat samiti seat.
According to intelligence sources, the sudden surge in the number of Independent candidates also explains the phenomenon. In Bhulabheda block alone, there are 48 candidates contesting for 10 seats — nine from CPM, 10 from Jharkhand Party, nine from Congress, one from Socialist Party and 19 Independents. PCC member and Belpahari block Congress president Subrata Bhattacharya said, “This is the first election where several victims of state terrorism are contesting. We are giving them full support. They should protest and tell the world how they are living. We are trying to keep them in the mainstream.’

Amiya Sengupta, CPM’s Binpur zonal committee member, said, “We have checked the profiles our candidates. If some family is recorded to have Maoist links, that is police’s fault.’

The Binpur MLA, who is a leader of Jharkhand party (Naren), said, “I have said earlier that it is a joint conspiracy by CPM and police to label our workers as Maoists only to weaken our party.”
