    I want to add a little more confusion here
    Technically speaking untangle with the new app web cache is a socks proxy

    Ok, I think it is time to move this dissection to another thread!

    The way Untangle works will not allow it to be a proxy.
    It has to be Inline with the traffic.

    Agreed with webfool's comments.
    This discussion has nothing to do with 8.1.

    My question is simple: Why do you need to use a proxy for your web clients?

    You've stated a requirement, I'm asking, why is that a requirement? What benefit do you get by specifying a proxy?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server
    A proxy server has a large variety of potential purposes, including:

    * To keep machines behind it anonymous (mainly for security). Untangle does this to an extent with NAT.
    * To speed up access to resources (using caching). Web proxies are commonly used to cache web pages from a web server. (Untangle now does this with web cache)
    * To apply access policy to network services or content, e.g. to block undesired sites. (Untangle does this)
    * To log / audit usage, i.e. to provide company employee Internet usage reporting. (Untangle does this)
    * To bypass security/ parental controls. (No)
    * To scan transmitted content for malware before delivery. (Untangle does this)
    * To scan outbound content, e.g., for data leak protection. (No)
    * To circumvent regional restrictions. (No)

    So Untangle already does most of what a "proxy" does, except without being a proxy. I echo Marks comments, what legitimate use does your ISA servers provide that Untangle does not? Untangle already does most everything ISA does from a policy, filter, and reporting stand point. Now that it does web cache, there is no reason to have ISA inline with Untangle.

The proxy server evaluates the request according to its filtering rules. For example, it may filter traffic by IP address or protocol. If the request is validated by the filter, the proxy provides the resource by connecting to the relevant server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client's request or the server's response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server. In this case, it 'caches' responses from the remote server, and returns subsequent requests for the same content directly.
    thats exactly what untangle does. Untangle *is* a proxy.

    It's just a transparent proxy that intercepts traffic as it transits the Untangle server. It does not, nor can it, work as a normal proxy server that requires browser reconfiguration.

    Default A proxy on my house!

    A proxy on your product is what I would like, not smart arse comments. Perhaps this was the wrong place to raise my request, maybe I should have been using live support or maybe I should reconsider renewing my subscription next year. I have read and understand all your quotes from wikipedia but that does not help my situation. The gateway on our networks leads to other internal networks and for security reasons I cannot use it as a gateway to the outside world therefore I need to point client web browsers to a proxy. Using Wikipedia definitions, what I am looking for is a "Web proxy" that I can specify via IP and port not a "Transparent proxy". My initial query was really looking to see whether this was going to be implemented in the future or not, a simple "yes" or "no" would have been sufficient.
