We installed Microsoft's third version of Proxy Server: Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server. We run ISA Server on a Dell PowerEdge 300, which is Dell's entry level system. The system is equipped with two 20GB IDE-bus hard drives, and two 10/100 NICs. ISA Server sits behind the SonicWall, as the network access point duplicating some of the functions of the firewall and adding many more capabilities of its own. And ISA Server is fast.
