Proxy and Reverse Proxy

Proxy

If we have clients (>= 1), an intermediate web server(in this case, we call it proxy), and a server. The main thing that happens in this is that the server doesn’t know which client is requesting.

Reverse Proxy

A Reverse proxy is a reverse of what a proxy does. Here, we will have let’s say a single client, an intermediate web server, and several backend servers (>=1).
