Proxy servers are getting more and more important today. They provide web page caches for users to browse quickly, and also reduce unnecessary network traffic. However, users can’t browse web pages with the wrong URL. Sometimes we just want to get some information about some subjects, the proxy server couldn’t help us at all. Most people often use search engines to find data, but they still have to type the correct URLs of search engines. We actually need the proxy server with the ability of “Interactive URL Correction”, which means the proxy server could correct the URL request, and take the users to where they want to browse, or send back some possible URLs. Users simply enter one word “google”, or even “goggle”, and then will eventually be taken to “”. To accomplish the URL correction, we have applied URL preprocess and approximate URL matching technique into proxy server. In this paper, we implement the system on the “squid” proxy system , and use “edit distance” as the URL error measurement. Additionally, we also list the limitation of proxy parameters and the benefits of our system.
