    The thing that most impressed me with CCProxy is how utterly simple it is. You download a small executable from their site, install it in about 20 seconds or less on an internet facing Windows OS, and you have the framework in place. That’s it. Depending on how strict your monitoring/user based access/web filtering needs are and how familiar you are with the product you are seriously just a few minutes to a couple of hours from download to a fully functional, in use proxy service.

    Compare that to TMG 2010 or ISA 2004. Those products take hours to get set up and running to be a proxy server, and that’s if you know what you are doing. The difference really being that the Microsoft proxy products include a huge mountain of more advanced features beyond just proxy web servicing. If you need your proxy server to also be a firewall, router, malware detector, traffic inspector/snooper then they have their place. But for basic proxy web service they are overkill.

    CCproxy has everything most places would need in a proxy. User/group based access with a windows domain can be configured. Traffic types allowed and ports are customizable. Live monitoring of web use and which IPs using it. Text file based, customizable, long term logging that is simple, clean and efficient. It can use the openDNS platform for intelligent web filtering. Text file based white and black list ability. Time restricted access. Mail proxy for SMTP and POP3 ability. Web page Caching. Using another proxy server for the internet access (they call that Cascading proxy).

    Anyhow, I haven’t used it for long. But I was able to figure it all out to get it running exactly how I wanted it within about 2 hours and I’ve been greatly impressed. The licensing prices aren’t bad either. As of this writing it was around between 4-7 dollars per client that connects to it (depending on how many you buy, it gets cheaper per seat).
