Proxy server

(1/2) > >>

Clive:
Can anyone explain briefly what a proxy server is?  Alternatively, is there any way I can temporarily disable the built in firewall on my Vigor 2600 router?  A friend of mine is on webcam and whilst Zone Alarm allowed webcams, my built in router doesn't.

Rodders:
This will save me some typing!   :)

Proxy Servers

Clive:
My head hurts now Rodders.  Maybe disabling my router firewall is easier.   ;D  ;D  ;D

Adept:
It's not so much a case of disabling the router Clive, its more a case of allowing the webcam to see through your router.

Which software are you using for the webcam? Once we know that, its just a matter of enabling the right ports in the firewall  :)

Clive:
It's just the Yahoo webcam Adept, so I don't use any special software to view.  When I try to view it just says I'm behind a firewall so it wont work and suggests I try a proxy server.
