Hi Experts,

My set up would be as follows;


```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
Public <<>> Cisco ASA <<>> (eth0)Transparent Proxy(eth1) <<>> Client
                                                                                                             >> Server(HTTP)
```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

`````````````````````````````````````
ASA outside: x.x.x.x
ASA inside: 192.168.1.254

Proxy eth0: 192.168.1.253
eth0 gateway: 192.168.1.254
Proxy eth1: Bridge

Client IP: 192.168.1.10
Client Gateway: 192.168.1.254
DNS: Internal DNS server + ISP DNS

Server IP: 192.168.1.11
Server Gateway: 192.168.1.254
DNS: Internal DNS server + ISP DNS
````````````````````````````````````
My requirements:
1. Client should be able to brows the Internet through the proxy
2. HTTP traffic should be able to forward to the internal web server

I have tried several open source products such as Zentyal, Untangle, but so far it's didn't work.
Can you please advise me on this ? Any recommendations/Howtos on anything products ?

Thanks a lot for your time !

If it were my project, I would buy Websense - and itegrate that with the ASA (I do like websense,  but some find it a little expensive) the ASA traditionally only supports N2H2 and Websense, but that does NOT stop you deploying another proxy filtering solution behind the firewall and pointing your internal clients at that.

I'd NOT recommend anyhting WCCP based, they always tend to be a bit clunky (sorry Cisco).
