How to Install Proxy on RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol). RDP + Proxy Socks - Manual (Internet Explorer, Firefox)

How to set up an anonymous and secure access to Internet?

Save access to the internet network is a current problem not only for large companies and corporations but also for common users. The Internet access through wired internet or mobile phone service provider, to which everyone is accustomed, cannot provide any protection of your personal data from trespassers stilling frequently users’ personal information over the last years. Furthermore providers often introduce regional restrictions on user access to specific web resources and services blocking the access by IP addresses.

RDP+socks proxy helps to bypass such restrictions and achieve a rather high level of protection and anonymity. This arrangement for the Internet connection is rather easy to built; the present manual helps you to do it.


RDP is an abbreviation for Remote Desktop Protocol. This protocol was originally created by Microsoft to provide a remote access for users to servers and computers running Windows. In fact, due to RDP the user is able to perform a remote control of a computer, running Windows and connected to a local network or the Internet, from another computer with installed RDP client.

Due to that possibility the user can connect to the Internet not directly from his computer, but through the remote computer, which allows to conceal the fact of tunneling; i.e. for the end web-site it looks like you are working directly from your computer without tunneling. Thus, such arrangement with the socks proxy allows you to obtain safe and anonymous access.
