Among all the proxy servers, some are called "anonymous" or proxy anonymizers. That is, the servers contacted cannot easily know the IP address of the client machine, They only "see" the address of the anonymizer server, On the other hand, the latter knows and can register it - thus making the notion of anonymity quite relative.
