 I don't agree... Didn't you find any trouble in merging active/passive
mode...? It seems to me the best you can do with ipchains means to allow
all ports 1024: <-> 1024: to talk each other and setting special DENY to
unused services... it sounds not so good to me.

 The toy is to deny all internal (win&other) machines from acceding
 directly the external net; a simple

 local lan  ---> proxy  ---> internet, dns, mailsrv

 scheme. I thought to filter mail & dns services and to allow the rest via
 proxy. Not for caching but for security... but if I can cache too, why
 not?  Now I'm wondering what's the proxy server made for me!
  I thought socks doesn't caching, perhaps it's wrong... and I think squid
 doesn't proxy ftp.

 The second you said!
