Hi, Untangle user, not so frequent poster.
Personally I have web cache disabled. With Untangle's new home license I'm wondering if the web cache could help my retired parents internet connection out. They live in rural IA and 1 Mb/s DSL is all that's available. Most days they are lucky to get 0.7 MB/s up and down. They mostly check email, look at the news sites, use the weather sites, and look at Facebook and use other apps on their iPad. Most of that is probably dynamic content.
I've read the performance guidelines and know web cache usually has negative-ROI, but could it work in this scenario? I'm considering Untangle for them anyway since they have a high propensity for downloading malware.
If so, would a system like this one be ok to run the web cache with the other apps? I use it for Untangle without web cache and it seems overly powerful for home Untangle use.
