hmm, is that an invite? :D

SQUID(8)                                                              SQUID(8)

       squid - Internet ObjectCache

       /usr/sbin/squid   [-hsvzCDFNRSVXY]  [-d level]  [-f file]  [-[au] port]
       [-k signal]

       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
