What is difference between a proxy server and a normal server

A proxy server tries to (sometimes succeeds) hide who/what/where you are !

The truth of the matter is that with the right programs you can still be discovered or traced back to your IP address for identification!

A proxy server basically forwards your request on your behalf, for a webpage, file or whatever, to the server that holds the information you requested.
So it goes from you to the proxy to the requested server, instead from you directly to the requested server.
A lot of ISP's use proxy servers to cache common requested files.
