    In how much detail do you want to know.

    In simple terms, a proxy server simply routes queries from a browser or an ftp client (or any client for that matter) to the internet.

    Eg, if A is my computer and B is a proxy server, then if i connect to the internet through B, it means that A sends its request to B and B get it from the internet then returns it to A.

    If you can rephrase the question more specifically, someone will be able to answer as per your need

    A proxy server is a computer that offers a computer network service to allow clients to make indirect network connections to other network services. A client connects to the proxy server, then requests a connection, file, or other resource available on a different server. The proxy provides the resource either by connecting to the specified server or by serving it from a cache. In some cases, the proxy may alter the client's request or the server's response for various purposes.
    it may also act as a firewall. actually, it is sharing of bandwidth..
