Ares is a P2P file-sharing program that users can download for free online enabling them to download audio, software, videos, Word documents, images and other forms of media. Users can upload their media files on Ares for sharing purposes. Proxy users can connect to a proxy server via Ares. A proxy server allows users to filter web traffic, such as bypassing parental controls and security controls. A proxy server can also block websites for restriction. Using a proxy server is useful since proxy servers allow anonymity. You can use proxy with Ares by configuring the settings in the program.
- Skill level:
Click "Control Panel" from the toolbar.
