Squid is a lightweight caching and forwarding web proxy server. It has a wide variety of uses, from aiding security by filtering traffic to caching web, DNS, and other computer network lookups for a group of people sharing network resources.
It is speeding up a web server by caching repeated requests. It can be configured to use an on-disk cache and serve cached content when offline and perform various forms of content filtering.
To minimize latency, Squid Proxy Server both pipelines multiple resource requests and multiplexes multiple transactions onto the same TCP/IP connection. Squid is HTTP 1.1-compliant, supports IPv4, IPv6, traffic filtering, and privacy-enhancement.
In addition, this Squid Proxy Server comes with the built-in Webmin that allows users to configure operating system internals. It removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets them manage a system from the console or remotely.
