michael_kent123 Posted March 5, 2015 Share Posted March 5, 2015 Hello, I have wondered for some time about the difference between proxy types. For example, Tor uses SOCKS 5. On the other hand, I can find lists of proxies and enter the IP:port into the HTTP proxy section of Firefox. What is the difference in practical usage between a HTTP proxy and a SOCKS 5 proxy? How are these proxies used? Are they used for different purposes? What are their advantages and disadvantages? Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
