    Accepted Solution

    Categorisation of Proxies depends on the information that you look at.

    gives a list of sites that will give you information relating to what information the proxy gives to the end location.
    Categorisation into the groups you have mentioned is subjective:

    Transparent, means that the proxy has done everything to forward all details from you to the end location. It means that the end location can not only tell what your ip is (forwarded for field), but probably things like your browser inc version etc)

    Anonymous, means that the proxy hides information about the client, but it is apparent that the proxy is a proxy due to certain firelds (or the fact it's name has 'squid' or 'proxy' in it)...making it obvious at the server end that the request is coming from a proxy.

    High-Anonymity tries to go a step further and conceal the fact that it is a proxy.

    The boundary between each group is subjective, as not all information is necessarily forwarded, and you might have say an anonymous proxy that reveals that you are using a specific version of a specific browser in order to guarantee that the web server serves up pages that are correctly optimised for you. However the above gives you the idea.
