    speed comparison

    after spending time on squid and iptables i found that

    iptables mean linux treated as router (masquerade) work fast as compare to squid proxy server
    why i don't know

    on client side i checked this speed
    when ever i open yahoo through masquerade , the side opens with in
    6 seconds (average) on dial up speed
    but when i chage the browser setting to proxy seting , the speed decrase to 10 to 15 and some time more than 18 seconds on the same site.

    what is this ?

    without cache speed is fast why ?

    That's the very nature of a caching proxy server. When you request an object (web page, image, etc), squid has to check it's local cache to see if it already has that file, then if it does, check to make sure it is current enough to be considered good. If it is, it'll give you the object. If not, it goes and fetches it, then stores it in the cache, then gives you the object. Thus, double the time, easily.

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    you could use ssh, or virtual private networking. This will work as long as you have access to the internet with your machines in different buildings. As far as the cost it would be the cheapest way to go because all the things needed are already with the operating system and if it is connected to the web you are all set. The only thing would be for you to set up the operating system to work with it.
