Well, if you have Windows 2000 available, there is Microsoft's new Internet
Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server. It runs only on Windows 2000, but
it is a rated firewall and includes the next version of their Proxy Server.

Unfortunately, there have been a few bugs with the Proxy Server side of it,
but the firewall side seems to hold up pretty well. I'd suggest at least
looking at it:

I'd like to get some information about software to install a proxy and a
firewall under Windows NT.I know the adventages of linux under NT but
there are some kind of users who does not have any idea about Linux and need
to use computers so I install Windows NT where I work and now We'll
get access to Internet and we want to install a proxy under this Operation
System.
Thanks
