FreeProxy 4.10 Build 1751
A proxy server with support for HTTP, SMTP, POP, FTP over HTTP, TCP Tunneling, NNTP and SOCKS5
The installation of the software doesn't require server configuration skills. Running FreeProxy brings up a classic interface. There's nothing fancy about it, everything you need is right at your fingertips right from the beginning. The button bar provides access to the main settings of the application. First of all, you can define the configuration of your proxy server.
The `Define / Change Proxy Service` window of FreeProxy requires you to choose the `Protocol` of your server from numerous options such as HTTP / POP / SMTP / Telnet / FTP / Socks or NNTP Proxy. You can also select the `Client Port`, the Local and Remote binding of network cards as well as IP address. Additional HTTP options are available for further customization - `Use PASV with FTP over HTTP` and `Use HTTP Authentication`.
FreeProxy also helps you manage dial-up connections and even create schedules for Internet access. The `Users and Groups` window is the place where you manage the users that benefit from your services. You can set specific passwords for each and one of them, batch import and also export entire sets. In order to provide shorter loading times, you can choose to `Activate the cache`. This helps a lot if your users surf particular bunches of websites daily.
For website filtering purposes, FreeProxy offers the possibility of specifying Ban Lists, create categories and redirects. This increases the security of your network as a whole, by rejecting those requests that may jeopardize the level of protection for individual computers. The application can also run in service mode, providing better integration with the operating system.
FreeProxy comprises the features to make it a rather impressive application. From user authentication, resource permissions and extensive reporting to URL / IP filtering, on-demand dialing and local port binding, this program packs a remarkable set of tools. You can take that toolbox and get creative with it – create any kind of proxy server you want. This time, nothing is impossible.
