Greetings !
I am looking for a good proxy, and since stuff is being developed all the time I think it's time for a bit of name your favorite.

Points go to reasons why you like the proxy that you are using.

I do have conditions for submitions !

1) Software, no hardware

2) FREE stuff. If I'm setting up a proxy I'm not going to pay for software ( I'm broke ;-)

3) Windows or Linux (Woody rulez ! )

4) I'd like to cash pages, maybe filter URL'z.

5) I have a firewall on my router ( Cisco access-list) so the proxy can be weak on the firewalling

6) I WANT STATS ! I need to keep track of bandwith hogs with up to the minute stats, catch network worms before they spread, ect.

7)I would like to throttle, maybe per IP or port or something similar.

8) I dont mind having to learn to do a tricky setup, though my time is precious.


Please dont post here...I asked this same question in annoter section, and with allot more points... to post click ere ---> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Firewalls/Q_21149897.html

i suggest using squid (http://www.squid-cache.org/) to do the proxy work, and mrtg (http://www.mrtg.org/) to give you pretty graphs of squid's stats. It's all fairly easy to set up and powerful enough to do what you want. It's free and runs on linux.

MRTG does a nice total-flow graph ( been using that for a while ) and it only gets better when used with RRDT, but I want to have a per IP(pc/user/whatever) breakdown. You know those peskey network worms and bandwith hogs .... when ping times go down all you need to do is look for the one IP that is using more flow than all the rest ( normaly sticks out head and shoulders ) and you find a problem before it has a chance to be a problem.
So what you need is a pie-chart or bar chart of per node bandwith use, over say the last 5 min ( or 15 min) or so. MRTG cant do that without squid, can it do it WITH squid ? I know there is allot of stuff that can work with squid.

Thanks
