Internet Explorer Proxy Configuration

Proxy Servers

Netro utilises Proxy Servers to increase the speed and reliability of web access, and to conserve bandwidth on the internet. A proxy server acts like a cache, storing recently visited internet sites on our local server, so that instead of having to trek across the internet, the page is here and ready for you here.
