There are plenty of Squid based appliances out there; there's a list of companies using Squid linked off http://www.squid-cache.org/ . I'm in the process of (slowly!) building a commercial proxy appliance based on Squid and FreeBSD which will inherit all the bells and whistles that Squid will offer. It'll include extras like Youtube/Windows Updates caching rules, some anti phishing and anti spyware filtering, and whatever else clients are interested in paying for. Send me a private email if you're interested. Adrian
