    server for my setting


    Hi guys, I'm new to this forum so sorry if this isn't the right place to ask this but this is the setting I have, I have a PC which is connected to the internet via USB modem, I have connected that via LAN to a router which is giving IP's to other computers, around 6 in my local connection. everything is working fine and I am using windows but I want to switch to Linux and be able to make that main PC a proxy server so that I have administrative power, and main thing is that pages can be cached so less bandwidth is used. can you help me with which version I can use or if there are some ISO files which have such settings in it. would appreciate it.

    thanks again.

    A good proxy server is squid which you can install and configure on pretty much any distro. (how to)

    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    The best way to find out is to have a go. If you have a reasonably good Windows machine, install VirtualBox on it and then a distro into that and play and learn in complete safety.
