Server proxy

A server proxy is a type of reverse proxy server that is used to tunnel communications through another protocol. Server proxy is an experimental idea centered around lack of resources, such as why pay for a server when you can use your own computer as a server.

Why

Often a server cannot be reached by normal means and the obstruction (the firewall or router) cannot be removed. By allowing presence of the server be known through another service, many more people can run servers.

Examples

HTTP server <-- HTTP-to-IRC server proxy --> (router or firewall) --> IRC server <-- IRC-to-HTTP client proxy <-- web browser

This illustrates how a server can be access even if it is behind a router or firewall.

Overload on central server

PUSH requests similar to those used in peer-to-peer application can be used to bypass the central server.
