12. Chapter - Proxy

12.1. Overview

The Intra2net system has an HTTP proxy. The proxy can be used for the following functions:

  • Acceleration of Access (Cache)

  • Filtering unwanted content

  • Filtering of dangerous content (viruses, trojans, etc.)

  • Logging of all Accesses

The proxy is internally comprised of different modules providing these functions. Since these modules work separately, it is not always possible to configure settings across all modules (e.g. for whitelists).
