Thread: Does your company use Proxy Server?

  1. #1

    Default Does your company use Proxy Server?

    Looking into something to monitor all incoming and outgoing traffic, set some policies, filters etc. Used to just apply it on the alcatel speedtouch, till they replaced it not long ago.

    Thinking of getting something like proxy server, or ISA server instead. Any recommendations? Just need something cheap and simple, that I can apply some filters, for a network of about 20-30 clients.


    Grrr.... wish I can clone my the other cisco 1700

    For a cheap solution, you can try WinRoute or WinGate. If I remember correctly, one of them even has a caching function.

    Checked on the old router again, that's an EA110 from Turbocomm, not Alcatel.

    It comes with a firewall webpage like my home cheap dlink modem for configuring filters.


    As for the new speedtouch, my model is Speedtouch Pro, no firewall, nothing. They have another model known as "Speedtouch Pro with Firewall", where you can set filters via telnet, or console.

    Guess your 610 will be something close to the Speedtouch pro with firewall. Saw this CLI guide on the speedtouch website.

    You can set firewall rules via the console.


    Hehehhehe, if you dont' need it, how about we change router?


    Downloaded the wingate trial, haven't install yet.

    Don't understand why they can't just place a decent firewall page in the Web GUI, I was using Dlink previously, other than the crap stability the firewall was peanut to set up.

    Thanks for bringing it up, didnt know there's such a comprehensive manual, the ones i got didnt touch on firewall. or maybe i simply missed it. Thanks again for d offer, the router has been serving me very well. I'll just let it rot.
