Firewall / Proxy personal opinions

By timber ·
I have a small network at home consisting of 5 servers NT 4.0 and 2000 and 4 workstations

I'm currently running MS Proxy server for security and web caching. I'm looking for something better than MS Proxy, preferably rule based, I don't care so much about the proxy aspect as I do security.

I have looked at a couple different products one being Wingate which I ruled out VPN issues. The other is Sygate. I haven't installed this yet I wanted to get opinions first.

If you have used Sygate let me know what you think. Features you like or dislike. Or any other packages that I may have missed. Same thing though tell what you like and don't like.

Thanks for the help....

Sygate offers a great solution. You should check out Zone Alarm Pro. It offers the best solution for Proxy/Firewall. It also easy to setup. Great wizard utility.

I'll research both suggestions a little further to make sure they do what I want, then make my decision.

Try winroute pro. 30 day trial. Available for download at www.download.com. Search for winroute pro. It is proxy, dns forwarder, dhcp, mail server, NAT (firewall) and easy to use.
