    Erm, wow, this is a weird one. I can't really find any information on this, not surprising really as Proxy Server 2.0 is increadibly old now and to be honest will have more holes than is worth it. With Server 2003 you should be looking at ISA server at least! In fact, the end of life for PS 2.0 was December 2004, so it is not supported in any way shape or form any more.

    I haven't installed it on anything after NT4 and i'm not sure it will work on 2003. As DB says it's been out of support for a very long time.

    Are you trying to use it because you've got it and you can't afford anything new? If so, you might be better off looking at Squid which is free and will run happily on Server 2003.

    this is some stuff I wrote a while ago about setting up Squid on a Windows server and it might help get started.

    You could run it inside a virtual server. Then it would be running in it's native operating system. Pretty yucky though.

    I've tried and failed at this one. MS Proxy server is pretty crappy. It isn't supported to run on anything more than NT4, although you could try forcing it to run in a compatability mode (dont think this will work/or even if there is one for NT4).

    Squid is alot better; more stable, more support, runs on almost any hardware/OS, FREE!

    Running a proxy for caching inside a virtual box? Is this a good idea? Agreed it would solve the problem, but you woulnd't get the performance of running on a dedicated box. Depending on your network size, squid will hapily run under ubuntu on a 1.1GHz machine with 256 RAM, for say 1000 users.

    What is your goal by having a proxy?

    as DOS_BOX stated .. Microsoft ISA Server is the way to go... IT can be used as an firewall and/or proxy server... If you want to use it as an proxy server only, you need to configure it with just 1 network card.
