Want to deploy an Internet connection for a company of about 60 staff.  Have a 25MBs connection to the Internet already.  It's terminated with a Linksys RV042 firewall and SPI firewall and that works well. But I would like to install a proxy server with some content filtering Any suggestions for good software that can achieve that (Windows please), What I have done so far is put Freeproxy on a Win2003 box and two NICs (one to the LAN, one to the external connection) but Freeproxy doesn't seem that robust.

Connection is only for Internet, no mail or VPN traffic.

Thanks

I would suggest considering the new Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010. It's a long way from being free, but it's a very capable product with a feature set that stands out.

I just got it up and running this week and have been very impressed so far.

TMG is good. thats what i'm using. There are also other software options, including Web Marshal and WinRoute. Or you could buy a firewall 'appliance' like a Sonicwall or Watchguard. These are just a few examples... there are a lot of options, all with different costs. Give a few companies a call and get them to show you what they can offer, and find out whether content inspection, URL blocking etc are part of the product, and what the ongoing costs are as they are usually subscriptions..

Or you could even add DynDNS Internet Guide as your DNS provider, and create a profile blocking some sites and types of content. This is also offered by OpenDNS (in both cases you have to create an account have a static IP so it knows what to send back to you).

Not a complete solution, but it can be part of it.

Thanks. I can't use MFTM since it requires Windows Server 2008 SP2 or R2 and the box I am using is only Win2003 and the organisation is not licensed for 2008.

Might check out WebMarshal and Win Route
