Direct connection or PRoxy

I am trying to confugure my program it says "Direct Connection to Internet" or "Proxy server Config"

I am confused i am using  ADSL connection and ADSL router is it consider as a proxy

I tried to enter router's ip address 10.0.0.2 but I do not have any  port number to go with it. I tried port 80, but this does not work.

My coonection is fine, should i just select "Direct Connection " or "I hv to setup Proxy", it was fine before when i was using Dial Up connection , i used to select "Direct Connection to int"

thanx

On my above case when should i consider as "PRoxy Connection" and when should i consider as "Direct Connection"?

I know direct connection is when connected to internet directly, and proxy for networked connection , but let me know in detail

Unless otherwise specified by your ISP, you should choose the Direct connection option.

Ok, in detail!  Direct connection is exactly as it sounds... Directly connected to the internet.  You would enter a proxy server only if your ISP required you to do so or if you chose an anonymous proxy somewhere on the internet.  The purpose of a proxy server is caching of web pages.  It also provides a level of security.

Unless you have been told to do so, just select the Direct connection option.

I agree with dramatix01... Proxy Connections are used when you are connecting through a Proxy Server.  Computers accounts that connect to the internet for business purposes through a corporate network are likely to require proxy configuration.  You are directly connected.

Yes.  You are correct.  You are not on a proxy server.

Proxy servers and Proxy setting information are provided by whoever owns the proxy server... usually your employer
