Try using www.astaro.org

Its primarily a firewall, but it has a proxy (squid), good logging and reporting options, and an easy web interface.

You can either buy an appliance or the software, and use it on a server you already own.

It can also be set up for high availability, and the licence fee is miniscule compared to ISA and the likes.

If linux is an option, check out Squid.

  I'm looking for a good quality proxy product.  I've got 2 Internet links
in 2 sites (connected via WAN) and I want a product that will act as a
proxy for each site but also allow the clients to go from one to the other
in the event of failure.  I know that ISA server does this as part of a
Proxy array but the enterprise version is something liek £4.5k a piece!!
Way to expensive when I'm not using the firewall side of it!
  Talking of which, second question.... how do you rate ISA server as a

Thanks for your help in advance!
