    Our LEA Websense servers have Squid proxy on them - no complaints to say about them.

    Web filtering is provided by the ISD here, and they're using McAfee Smart Filter I think. From the inside I have a Squid proxy that authenticates against the Active Directory for student traffic logging. The internal Squid proxy uses the external ISD proxy as a cache peer. After some kinks were worked out it works remarkably well.

    Main proxy is provided by YHGfL which I think uses squid (don't quote me). For student traffic monitoring and blocking the ocasional website we use Smoothwall Express in house.

    internally we have isa2006 for pupils & squid proxy on debian netinstall for staff

    the isa has a bespoke room access management system tacked on the side, the staff don't need restrictions or authentication so theirs is a minimal install and config. our proxies forward to the LEA proxies that use netsweeper.

    We are using the Palo Alto PA-500. absolutely brilliant firewall as it is application aware. Great as you do not have to worry about opening ports or lots of rules. Just allow the program access and that is it.

    We used to have an RM SmartCrash, but now it's only used as a door stop.

    Squid/Dansguardian/Samba on Gentoo linux here. NTLM authentication means that everything is logged. I've had various companies ring me up trying to flog us stuff in the past, but usually quote stupid money to do pretty much the same thing we do now, with only a nicer interface.
