Squid is a caching proxy server (OK, explain that wink ) that can also be used offline.

Aside: Today the smiley face is displayed, yesterday it wasn't -- I think I reloaded Mozilla 0.9.8 since then.

Recommended for Specific Needs

A proxy-server provides Internet access to different users at same time i.e. by sharing a single Internet connection. A good proxy server also provides for caching of the requests, which helps to access data from local resources rather fetching the data from web thus reducing access time and bandwidth. Squid is one such software which supports proxy, caching of HTTP, ftp, gopher, etc.. It also supports SSL, access controls, caching of DNS and maintains a full log of all the requests. Squid is as well available for Windows-NT from Logi Sense.

The focus of this article is to give basic guidelines of setting up a proxy server and ways of providing controlled access to users.
