squid - Internet ObjectCache
/usr/sbin/squid [-hsvzCDFNRSVXY] [-d level] [-f file] [-[au] port]
Squid is a FTP, HTTP and HTTPS proxy cache. For general information on
squid, please read the very well commented configuration file
/etc/squid.conf. More information can also be found in the files in
the directory /usr/share/doc/squid , including a FAQ. Also check out
the squid homepage at http://squid.nlanr.net/.
i know ssh can't be sensibly proxied though, and i have no idea what
ipsec is. :D
