Windows-based Gateway Proxy Cache Server
Posted on 2010-09-15
I am in the process of adding a few features to my SMB network, and am in need of some recommendations regarding Proxy software.
Essentially, the only absolutely required feature is the ability to cache web traffic, any feature beyond that is a bonus. The most users on the network at any one point will not exceed 6 so I don't need a massive enterprise solution.
There have been quite a few questions already asked on EE regarding this, but as yet I haven't been able to find a solution that meets all of my criteria.
The software criteria is:
1. Windows based (specifically Windows XP)
2. Must have a GUI or Web Browser Interface for configuration.
3. Must be able to cache web traffic, inluding files of up to 50mb in size.
4. Can be configured as a gateway (ie: 2 x Network Card, internal network with DHCP on one, external network (internet) on the other).
5. Low cost (or free!).
Any suggestion would be welcome! Please feel free to ask questions if you need more info.
