About CCProxy (Free version)

CCProxy (Free version) is free and powerful proxy server, which enables users to share Internet connection within the LAN. CCProxy provides efficient ways to build an anonymous Internet access, download files, send and receive emails. CCProxy also allows to ignore restrictions and blockages, set by your provider, due to the possibility of tunneling connections through SOCKS proxy, specified by the user. Anonymous access can be arranged not only for devices in LAN, but also for the computer that is running as CCProxy server.
