The old squid that you say 'old' is gold for me.
Whatever you need can be nicely done using squid. You can get the latest stable release of squid and configure it according to your need. I am running it and never had problems with asp sites as well.
If you need a graphical interface, I will suggest you try webmin. Other graphical interfaces that you can usr are proxymin and squid manager.

Or build in your firewall and proxy with IPCop and Squid. But as mentioned already, squid is very capable.
