I have about 250 machines im going to point at my corrent proxy. The machine is a dell server P4, 1gb memory, 1 nic running server 2003 R2
Does anyone think there will be a problem with the current server or will I have to upgrade?
They will be limited to certen sites/Domains that they can go to.

Thanks for you help.

2GB RAM would be better as would two processors but not crucial. When you go up to ISA2006, the extra memory etc would be needed for sure.

Are you going to use VPN's?

No vpn just http/https traffic it is basically used more as s site controller then firewall. The 250 machines are on the wan side of the proxy and forwarded through my router then to the proxy and out to the internet.
I have a 9m t3 comming into the proxy.

Do you for see any other issues

Not exactly tight on bandwidth then? :)

If you have that capacity, I would definitely opt for 2GB and a twin processor as responses are going to be reasonably quick. Of course, you could just go as you are then upgrade if needed. Your current config will work fine but may not perform as fast as it might.
