Socks5: SOCKS is networking middle ware that enables an unstructured, and often
unsecured enterprise network, to effectively, responsibly, and safely use the
Internet. SOCKS establishes a secure proxy data channel between two computers
in a client/server environment. From the client's perspective, SOCKS is
transparent. From the server's perspective, SOCKS is a client. The most common
use of SOCKS is as a firewall. Last modification on December 14 2000.

Squid: HTTP proxy cache. Last modification on December 18 2000.
Internet Junkbuster: The Internet Junkbuster Proxy (TM) blocks unwanted banner ads and
protects your privacy from cookies and other threats. It's free under the GPL.
It works as a proxy that stands between your browser and the Internet, checking
every HTTP request for each resource (including graphics) against a blockfile
of URLs before sending it over the Internet. It can be configured as a plain
old non-caching, non-blocking proxy as well. Last modification on September 13 2000.
Muffin: Muffin is a filtering proxy server for the World Wide Web written
entirely in Java and therefore requires JDK 1.1. Last modification on September 2 2000.
DeleGate: DeleGate is a multi-purpose application level gateway, or a proxy server
which runs on multiple platforms (Unix, Windows and OS/2). DeleGate mediates
communication of various protocols (HTTP, FTP, NNTP, _Telnet, etc.), applying
cache and conversion for mediated data, controlling access from clients and
routing toward servers. It translates protocols between clients and servers,
merging several servers into a single server view with aliasing and filtering.
Born as a tiny proxy for Gopher in March 1994, it has steadily grown into a
general purpose proxy server. Besides proxy, DeleGate can be used as a simple
origin server for some protocols (HTTP, FTP and NNTP). Last modification on December 30 2000.
RabbIT: RabbIt is the mutating, caching webproxy which is used to speed up
surfing over slow links like modems. It does this by removing advertising,
background images and scaling down images to lowquality jpeg's. All this means
its less to download and you still see the page as it is (mostly). RabbIT is
written in Java and should be able to run on any plattform, it does depend upon
a imageconverter (if imagescaleing is on). The current choice of imageconverter
is convert for now. Last modification on December 14 1998.
dante: Dante is a free implementation of the socks protocol (version 4 and
version 5; rfc1928) which can be used as a firewall between networks. It is
being developed by Inferno Nettverk A/S, a Norwegian software company (which
also offers commercial support). Last modification on November 22 2000.

tinyproxy: tinyproxy 1.1 is a lightweight HTTP proxy designed to do the job with a
minimum of system resource use. It's ideal for small networks where a larger
HTTP proxy such as squid might be overkill or a security risk. This simplicity
also makes tinyproxy an ideal candidate for customization - it takes very
little time to read and understand the tinyproxy source, and thus you can start
adding your own desired features on short order. Last modification on December 28 2000.
HTTPGate: HTTPGate is a filtering HTTP Gateway originally intended to enchange
user's privacy when surfing on the net, but it can also be used to avoid
censorware systems in web browsing. HTTPGate operates on a user definable
internet port where the user connects using a web browser. The main page shows
a text box and a set of options user can choose to avoid transmitting some
information during client/server negotiation. Last modification on August 13 1999.
tircproxy: tircproxy is a full featured IRC proxy. It can proxy DCC CHAT, DCC SEND
and other DCC requests transparently to the user, block common trojans (such as
script.ini), hide the user's identity and more. It can be used with the Linux
kernel or IPF transparent proxy features to transparently proxy IRC sessions. Last modification on April 10 2000.
ezbounce: Ezbounce is a highly configurable IRC proxy. Its basic features include
password protection, remote administration and access control (ban lists and
allow lists). It can listen and connect on different virtual hosts on a
machine. It also has a 'detach' feature which allows clients to disconnect from
the proxy but keep their irc session active, and reattach to it later. Last modification on November 30 2000.

``For half a year I ran IIS on our main web server in support of my
statement: "If our customer are using IIS and having trouble, we should
feel their pain." The pain got unbearable. I bailed and converted www.digicool.com to Linux.''
