MMO, which stands for massively multiplayer online, is a type of computer game that is played over the Internet and creates a community of players. Some people use proxy servers when playing MMO games in order to change their IP address and disguise their physical location. If you need to change your proxy server address for an MMO game, you can configure the settings through the Windows 7 Control Panel.
