Explicit proxy is a type of configuration where all clients are configured to allow requests to go through a proxy server, which is a server used as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. For example, when a FortiGate uses explicit proxy, the clients sending traffic are given the IP address and port number of the proxy server.

Bruce has been working with computers, and related technology, since before the World Wide Web was a thing. He has worked in system and network administration. He has even dabbled in technical support. He has made the switch to technical writing as part of his deep, dark and dastardly plan to make the arcane machinations of IT technology more easily understood by the poor folks who use it. That, and the voices in his head told him it was good idea. Never argue with the voices in your head. People will start to stare.
