Hi there,

plain internet traffic would be the flows directly between and client and destination address.

Proxy internet traffic would be the traffic flows originating from a web proxy which is contacting the destination address on behalf of the client. What are the use cases for this? Web-caching and SSL decryption are common examples.

 

cheers,

Seb.
