Cool Proxy Server for Linux something like wingate


Hi,

I am very new to the linux , i got fascinated with the performance and the output that i got from linux.

I have a simple question which everyone might have asked here.

I have just installed ubuntu server 9.10

Now i wish to make it my mail server and proxy server along with my web server can i.

The config of the macgine is PIV 512MB ram, 80Gb HDD.

The enviroment that we have is.

We have 2 diff isp in the workplace, 1 is the main link and the other is a failover link.

At present we use wingate which has the facility for the same.

My question is because i am not so used to command is there a GUI based proxy server for linux which is same or similar like wingate or winproxy.

can anyone please guide me on how to setup all these so that i can learn and then start spreading the linux into everyones mind so that we are not bugged i with ms....

I went through many sites but got confused where people where talking about dsguardian or squid etc etc

Awaiting your response

Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Have a look at Webmin. It provides a webinterface to configure a lot of things in Linux. There also are modules for Squid and SquidGuard. The installation is pretty easy and should be up and running in no time. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric

Thanks eric for your quick response.

I have done the following. if you can help and teach me would be very grateful

I have installed Ubuntu server edition 9.10 done the installation as per the following http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...10-ispconfig-3

But while installation i have selected the following
lamp server
mail server
tomcat server
open ssh server

Should i install the GUI for linux i.e xfce (xUbuntu)

or should i follow this steps
http://www.ubuntugeek.com/3171.html to install webadmin.

Also like i mentioned i we already have a linux mail server based in canada, which will remain but would like to have a copy here means all my mails sent and recd would be stored here as well as on the main server is that possible, if yes should i install the satelitte or something else in the configration ?

I guess more questions would turn up and i hope ur not bugged with my lack of knowledge.

Regards,

Ganapathy

Hello,

If you're learning Linux and really want to learn then I would not install the GUI, you learn a lot more working on the command line. If you don't feel at comfort with the command line then you can install the GUI, but it will take up resources and disk space. Webmin will give you plenty of GUI functionality for your means. I don't have a GUI installed on any of our servers.

So just go ahead with installation of webmin.

The mail server is a problem for further down the road, just take it one step at the time to avoid confusion. And nobody here at LQ will be 'bugged' for 'lack of knowledge'. We're here to help you so that you acquire knowledge.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

No problem. You don't have to be scared of the command line. Just read the man pages
Code:
man <command>
carefully when in doubt and you should be good. I you really have questions about a command you can look it up on the internet or ask here at LQ.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Can you try with the following? First export the http_proxy variable and next run the wget command:
Code:
export HTTP_PROXY=http://198.168.0.8:80
wget http://www.webmin.com/download/deb/webmin-current.deb
Let us know if it works out.

Kind regards,

Eric

eric once again thank you.

i have sucessfully installed webmin on my new ubuntu server

what i did was downloaded the tz package manually to my windows machine, webserver and used the wget command to transfer the file and then i unziped the same into a directory and installed.

i have also now installed samba server and still not able to share the files and directory in order to support the same.

what next should i do. ??

Regards

Ganapathy
