I would need to move a squid from Windows NT (heh) to some Unix (i386) machine. Also, I would like to use SmartFilter (www.securecomputing.com
) to filter some urls or whatever. I need to know the following:
What OS would you recommend (preferably free one, for business use) to run Squid and Smartfilter on?
Smartfilter compatibility list only lists Solaris and Redhat; but Redhat Linux support and development ends with April this year, so perhaps something else?
I was thinking on 1) Slackware, and 2) OpenBsd.
Unfortunately, I haven't got any experience with OpenBsd, but as I heard it's a nice little pearl for running networking services. But I don't know if it is indeed o.k. for running a Squid.
Also, this SmartFilter thing, would it work on it? Or I just choose Slackware?
I'd appreciate any feedback on this from people who used this combination.
