Tidal Media Inc. presents ready-to-run and pre-configured Squid Proxy Server with Webmin GUI on Ubuntu 18.04. Built-in Webmin allows you to manage the operating system through a web interface, without using the command line and remembering system commands and their parameters.
Squid Proxy Server has a wide variety of uses, including speeding up a web server by caching repeated requests, caching web, DNS and other computer network lookups for a group of people sharing network resources, and aiding security by filtering traffic.
Although primarily used for HTTP and FTP, Squid includes limited support for several other protocols including Internet Gopher, SSL, TLS and HTTPS.
After Squid Proxy Server with Webmin GUI is installed, web browsers can be configured to use it as a proxy HTTP server, allowing Squid to retain copies of the documents returned, which, on repeated requests for the same documents, can reduce access time as well as bandwidth consumption. This is often useful for Internet service providers to increase speed to their customers, and LANs that share an Internet connection.
Also it has some features that can help anonymize connections, such as disabling or changing specific header fields in a client's HTTP requests.
