What is Torrent Network?

The purpose of anonymizers is to make online activity untraceable for users.

Anonymizers are proxy servers that effectively intermediary between the client and the actual server. Anonymizer attempts to provide a shield of anonymity by protecting the identification information of the existing systems using the service or resources.

Various types of anonymizers are available freely and commercially on the Internet. Protocol-specific anonymizers only understand a specific protocol and can only mediate connections that use that particular protocol.

This works because the client would initiate a connection to the anonymizer. The commands that are sent to the anonymizer are shipped inside a message.

After receiving the command, the anonymizer would strip out the commands and relay the connection information to the destination server as if it originated from the anonymizer.

There are protocol-independent anonymizers, which effectively tunnel the traffic between the server and the client. The protocols used by anonymizer services include OpenVPN, PPTP, SOCKS4, SOCKS5, etc.
