Re: Using Debian as a proxy

I want to put a proxy server on our network at my office, and was
advised to use Debian Linux as the proxy. I have search your FAQ, but
cannot really find my answer.
Will Debian work as a proxy server, and will it mix with a Windows
network to act as the proxy?
Is there a good readme that will help me install it as a proxy server
if it can work.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
yes, debian will work fine as a proxy. I currently have a setup where i
use squid as a proxy for 2 machines (we only have an ISDN linkup atm,
but that might change). Atm, about one in three pages comes out of the
cache. One of the machines is a Win2k box, the other is a debian woody box.
Please note though that this list is for general debian-related
discussions, questions like yours should probably go to one of the users
lists (debian-users-fr, for french-language discussions?)
My (Proxy-related) setup is:
Calamaris (for weekly/mothly performance reports)
Cachemgr.cgi (for 'snapshots')..
on a Debian-Woody box.
