Up front this is not a knock on the product because I have no idea what it is, does, or what to do with it. I just wish intriguing software like this came with plainly written easy to comprehend, step-by-step instructions. Like, if this is some sort of proxy that hides your real IP address on the Internet (for example) I wish it would just say so!

If you visit the developer's site; "DESCRIPTION Plugdaemon acts as a "dumb proxy", forwarding a TCP/IP stream from a port on one host to a possibly different port on a separate host. It runs as a daemon to reduce latency in setting up a connection, and optionally logs every connection via syslog" You could also use google to understand it or find out what plug-gw is. http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-6350-1053294.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Load_balancing_%28computing%29 But if you don't know and can't find out - chances are you don't need it DOM.

DOM - "Like, if this is some sort of proxy that hides your real IP address on the Internet (for example) I wish it would just say so! " - It's not. Sounds like you are looking an "Anonymizing proxy server" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymizer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server Anonymizing proxy server A proxy server that removes identifying information from the client's requests for the purpose of anonymity is called an anonymizing proxy server or anonymizer. Be careful of these; Hostile proxy Proxies can also be installed by online criminals, in order to eavesdrop upon the dataflow between the client machine and the web. All accessed pages, as well as all forms submitted, can be captured and analyzed by the proxy operator. For this reason, passwords to online services (such as webmail and banking) should be changed if an unauthorized proxy is detected. Intercepting proxy server An intercepting proxy (often incorrectly called "transparent proxy") combines a proxy server with a Gateway. Connections made by client browsers through the gateway are redirected through the proxy without client-side configuration (or often knowledge). Intercepting proxies are commonly used in businesses to prevent avoidance of acceptable use policy, and to ease administrative burden, since no client browser configuration is required. It is often possible to detect the use of an intercepting proxy server by comparing the external IP address to the address seen by an external web server, or by examining the HTTP headers on the server side.
