Can someone tell me if ASA5505 supports Reverse Proxy?  I have this firewall.  I am debating bringing up an ISA Server to set up Reverse Proxy.  If the CISCO Firewall supports it, I will just set it up there.  Wondering what the thoughts are around this?

ISA 2006 SP1 does it better and so it should, this is one of its key roles, acting as an application gateway working at the application layer. It also has wizards for most reverse proxy role setups.
However, ISA requires a license per server node processor.
It also requires a Windows 2003 server license.

ASA can do reverse proxying but not to the same level and in fairness, is not its key function.
ASA is slightly quicker as it is hardware based.
ASA still needs licensing based upon the number of concurrent outbound users.
