I was reading about reverse proxies on Wikipedia, basically it suggested to me taht proxies are associated with clients and provide internet resources for the clients
... and reverse proxies wer associated with servers, and acted as an agent to give access to the server from a client, and to return server resources .
From a very high level, without the details of implementation, could someone please tell me if this is generally correct. Is a reverse proxy simply a gateway to the server and back?
