Find Proxy Server Address

Proxy servers are, essentially, "intermediate" servers; that is, they act as intermediates between users and other servers. They can serve several purposes: to block the user from certain websites, to screen the user's real IP from servers or from others, to allow users to access regionally restricted websites, to filter traffic before it reaches a main server and many others. While many users use specifically set-up proxy servers, others without as much expertise will sometimes log in to pre-set-up proxy servers via common Web links. In this case, it can be useful to find out the IP address of the proxy server.
