    dammmiiittt, what's wrong with the UT team?

    All they "give" us is: (for free) is:
    Easy install pre-configured package which includes
    dns
    dhcp
    QOS
    smoooth web interface
    Firewall -with routing/forwarding rules
    Spyware blocker
    Web filter - moderately configurable
    Virus blocker
    Intrusion prevention
    protocol control
    Ad blocker
    VPN that is just the smooothest
    Reporting that is very comprehensive
    Spam blocker
    Easy access to "advanced server suites" when the free ones fall short of our needs
    plus great access to contributors for support....

    Why can't we just get MORE... for crying out loud!

    And I'm sure I overlooked a bunch of things...
    Thanks for the great software I've been able to install for 11 schools and non-profit offices. Put it in, and it works! I haven't found anything else I like as well - and I've been searching!

    Great job UT

    I would love to get proxy / cache on Untangle.

    I wont go into details because everyone before me has already talked about all the reasons, which are more than valid.

    Polipo (as outlined in this wiki article) works well. Just needs a rack GUI so that we can setup the site lists, cache size and a button to clear the cache.

    The cache works fine almost all the time, but very rarely Windows will hang at 99% downloading one particular update... [You need] to shutdown Polipo, find the errant file inside /var/cache/polipo (it's usually the most recently modified), delete it and restart Polipo... Sadly this means that Polipo is not a fire & forget solution - you couldn't deploy it on a non-techie's Untangle box
    Until a critical bug like that is fixed, don't think it's going to happen.

    I think if squid was easy to get working it would have been done by now.

    Having used Squid in the past, it's far from easy to get working properly. I had it working for a little while but it's a very persnickety little application and I finally gave up on using it.

    You may one day find something interesting here. Today is not that day. Tomorrow isn't looking too good either.

    *bump grave-digging*

    I'm very interested in seeing a caching function added to Untangle. Untangle has *EVRYTHING* I want except it lacking the ability to cache. I saw the little FAQ about how to cache windows updates, but I want to be able to have a long term cache for specific things like updates, but also a live temporary cache for everything else like squid provides.

    I was pumped when I learned about Untangle on Hak5 but utterly disappointed it lacked the caching ability smoothwall has. Come on guys, just a few more features like that and you'll be the king of router distros!

    Default caching needed

    Hi,

    I agree with y'all, Untangle need cache feature. I'm looking for an alternative solution to our cachebox, I installed untangle on the cachebox hardware, and it's working fine, but found out that caching is still not available. Untangle is my best for now because of the bridged feature. In the future, we might incorporate Captive Portal with AD connector. But with the caching feature unavailable, I'm double minded now and searching for another solution.
