Thank you for taking the time to pose your question. It?s been my experience that some administrators have attempted to substitute a proxy server for a firewall (regardless of the operating system). In some cases, a proxy server had been installed because the firewall in place did not offer caching capabilities. In either case, I ask you to consider implementing a firewall or upgrading it to support caching. If you choose to implement a proxy server, beware of httptunnel.

Below are the proxy server links for Red Hat Linux:
Red Hat Stronghold version 3.x Squid Web Proxy Cache 2.5
Kind Regards,
