    No untangle is not a proxy. It is and Will be a inline device.

    the answer is still no.
    the web cache module dose not change the way untangle works.

    and it dose not add any proxy feature.
    it just adds the a cache function for webtraffic.

    I guess we are unclear what you mean by "proxy part of squid web cache"

    The two have often been historically combined, however they are two separate functions. A proxy does not necessarily have web caching, and a web cache does not necessarily support being installed as a proxy.

    Untangle is the latter case. Untangle supports web caching but it works just like all untangle apps work - by manipulating the traffic transparently as it passes through untangle.

    Having the ability to switch from router or proxy so as to eliminate the use of external web proxies this is one thing I and many others would like to see

    You're going to have to be more clear as to what you want to do because the word "proxy" has so many meanings as to be useless.

    I really don't understand your sentence as written, what feature do you need the untangle to have in order to "eliminate the use of external web proxies"?

    I think what confuses us here (or at least me) is that I don't see what benefit you get from a proxy that untangle can't provide better in it's current form as an inline device?

    See this is where the confusion comes in.

    Proxy does not mean cache. There are plenty of proxies that don't cache.

    Before 8.1, untangle was such a proxy for certain protocols. That's why integrating squid was such a challenge.

    In any case, Untangle now provides for caching of http data integrated with the UVM. The data is still protected by your network policies, but is served from cache when possible.

    No external cache/proxy is required.
