advproxy - The Advanced Web Proxy add-on



Advanced Proxy is an add-on module for the popular Linux based firewall distributions IPCop and SmoothWall, extending their web proxy functionality with a lot of versatile and useful additional features.

The package contains a squid binary recompiled with advanced configuration options for maximum flexibility. The Advanced Proxy graphical user interface gives you access to much more settings than the built-in proxy GUI does.
