Squid is a full-featured Web proxy cache, free open-source software, the result of many a contributions by paid, unpaid and, or volunteer programers. Squid supports proxying and caching of HTTP, FTP, and other URLs, proxying for SSL, cache hierarchies, ICP, HTCP, CARP, Cache Digests, transparent caching, WCCP (Squid v2.3 and above), extensive access controls, HTTP server acceleration, SNMP and caching of DNS lookups.
Using its HTTP, FTP and DNS lookup caching features, we have observed unbelievable improvements in surfing speed, to the tune of some 1,000-1,100 times, on a single Internet connection shared among 18-20 nodes at various cyber-cafes and, or offices.
Ask for remote installation, configuration and, or customization of Squid on Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Redhat, Gentoo or FreeBSD, at nominal charges.
