I use IPcop and DansGuardian. It works very well for us. I use it in 3
schools, there are a few others in our division that also use it. I
tried it with SquidGuard, but prefer the Cop+ (DansGuardian) better. It
uses a bit more horsepower, but does a better job. I run it on a
PIII600/256MB RAM and serve a school of 350 students with about 1Gb of
data/day. With 128Mb it would run for a few weeks and then start using
lots of swap. With 256 it just runs and runs.
I had also tried SME server with squid/squidGuard but never got that to
We also tried OpenBsd with privoxy and that would crash under heavy
load. squid/DansGuardian works much better.
my 2 bits worth
