Squid proxy is one of the best open source proxy software’s and most widely implemented solutions. I was trying to quickly set this up with less efforts but with no compromise w.r.t implementing robust ACLs (Access Control Lists).
Instead of reading various Howto’s in the net, I started searching for ready made appliance which could make things easy for me 🙂
After reviewing various options, I have had decided to go with Artica Proxy. Its pretty simple and its intuitive interface makes it simple to swiftly setup Squid Proxy within few minutes.
It offers Transparent Proxy, Load Balancer, 1.6 Millions blacklisted sites (updated on daily basis), user defined ACLs etc… For a full featured characteristics and benefits please visit the URI here.
I hope you’ll find this intelligent software useful and happy proxying!!
