Circuit-Level Gateway

Definition: A circuit-level gateway is a type of firewall. All internal computers establish a “circuit” with the proxy server. The proxy server performs all communications with the Internet. External computers only see the IP address of the proxy server and never communicate directly with the internal clients.

About Author

I have a passion for technology and gadgets--with a focus on Microsoft and security--and a desire to help others understand how technology can affect or improve their lives. I also love spending time with my wife, 7 kids, 3 dogs, 5 cats, 3 rabbits, 2 ferrets, pot-bellied pig and sulcata tortoise, and I like to think I enjoy reading and golf even though I never find time for either.
