    Chaps,

    im looking for a, if possible, free, low memory usage proxy server. i dont want tha filtering palava, just the caching...

    the reason for the low memory is cuz my server is slow as fcuk, it just about meet min requirements...

    btw: also a viral protection prog aswell, low mem requirements...

    i heard you can do it part of the server by setting some groups or something, but im being lazy at the mo...

    win 2k3 advanced server.

    Thanks...

    Cheek,

    I assume it is a SOHO setup, with maybe 4 machines?
    If so, it would be best to stick with the current AV on the machines and use Smoothwall for it's firewall and proxy facilities.
    I have it installed on a PC here, just waiting to knock the NAT off my Zyxel DSL box to set up.

    Smoothwall is a Firewall product AFAIK it doesn't have a proxy feature.

    If you can get hold of an eval CD of ISA (Internet security and acceleration server) you can set that up as just a proxy server if you wish.

    Why don't you use Squid?

    Its open source (so it meets your price requirement - i.e. free!) and isn't a nightmare to set up. There is a Windows port available from here and, to make your life even easier, a GUI-based install & config called Kraken

    Squid rocks!
