    Question opera mini IP question

    using my PDA/mobile phone to browse the net with Opera-Mini, I found that the IP address was that from Norway(Opera Norway server indeed)...

    From http://www.ip2location.com

    ISP: OPERA SOFTWARE ASA
    Domain: OPERA-MINI.NET

    instead of my own country IP.

    Is that mean I'm using a proxy server by Opera while browsing??

    When using Opera Mini, the web page is requested by an Opera server in Norway. The response is then massaged by the server and the result is sent to your mobile phone. It can be seen as a type of proxy.

    Thus it's not your phone that's talking to the web server, it's Opera's dedicated Mini server(s).
