Windows based proxy server software with user authentication

Hi I am looking for some free proxy server software to run on a windows based pc and if possible will have the following functions:

1. User Authentication - users need to enter a password via internet explorer.
2. Traffic Monitoring - The ability to view were the users have been
3. Email reporting if possible.

Thanks in advance.

Ertnev.

Hi,

Have you checked out MS ISA Server? It does traffic monitoring and bandwidth management with additional modules installed as well as Email reporting.

Hi uetian1707,

I have considered MS ISA Server, but the cost is too expensive. Some members have mentioned Untangle, do you know much about this ?

Thanks

Thanks for the update.

Yes I always wanted to tell you about Squid or Untangle. They are much more powerful, Open-source and free. All the features are built-in. ISA is a good product but for every common feature like bandwidth management, you need to buy another 3rd-party module. You can download untangle and evaluate it. I guess it would meet most of your needs.

Its cost is based on concurrent users + functionality.
