    Jesus Christ what the hell is wrong with you people? If you want a mother f'n proxy then whip up an debian server and make one. Man, im so f'n tired of hearing about "we love untangle except it wont do "this" so were going to look for another solution.

    Search for another solution, you wont find it. And they dont want to be "kings of the router distro's" they want to be the best damn UTM on the market.

    Im going to stop now, this thread always pisses me off.

    Shoot, I misread the title, it said cache, I thought it said cafe, as in cafe mocha. What I really like for Untangle to do, is a module that'd whip me up a caramel macchiatto on demand, then, only then, would Untangle be the best damn bistro ever.

    If anyone can whip a module for that, I've got $50 bucks for you on msn messenger, right now!

    Have been supporting and will always continue to support UT and I know cache / proxy is a 'sensitive' area to talk about; but would it be too much to suggest that only selected file extension (e.g. .exe, .msi) are cached? Helps a lot on the windows updates and the same time won't mess around with the ajax, web 2.0.

    I wouldn't call a caching proxy a sensitive subject. It's just that many of us doubt it's place in a modern network.

    That said, if the benefit of the proxy isn't in question. As some swear by the feature, the next step is an evaluation of a proxy's impact on the Untangle platform.

    Personally I think we have a long way to go before a proxy within Untangle is viable. And this is from a ram/hard disk utilization standpoint. Proxy systems are not easy, and they aren't trivial. I've always recommended a dedicated unit for the proxy for that reason. If your environment is large enough to really benefit from a proxy system, having an extra box doing that work should be trivial to come up with. And at the end of the day, the separate box is simply easier to manage.

    Is converging this feature worth it? I don't think so, but others seem to. Now it's up to Untangle and their cost / benefit analysis to determine when it will end up in the development pipe.

    FWIW - WSUS Offline Update might be of great help those in need. It's not automatic, but still great help.

    I run a small network and I don't think caching would help. Caching service packs would be great but what cache is going to hold the service packs in cache for very long. Better to just download the service packs. Even if you tried to cache a service pack how much memory are you willing to buy to make it happen. Think about how big they are.
