linux as proxy
Posted on 2003-11-02
i am working in an computer organsation and there we run win2k with wingate as the proxy to share the internet over the LAN. but i want to use linux because i think that i would be fast and more efficent. i have heard the squid is the proxt which is used for this purpose in linux..... can any one please tell me that how can i configure SQUID.
please also tell me that what is better LINUX proxy or the same WIN2k proxy with wingate.
i know i will have to connect my linux machine to the ISP and then somehow make that linux machine which is directly connected the ISP a proxy server and then all the workstations in the labs and offices can use the proxy to access the internet.
i hope you ppl understand what i want to ask.
