Seems like I'm missing something here. Why have a proxy outside the
firewall? What does that gain you? Are you utilizing it as just a cache?
CERN's proxy will proxy all info (ftp,gopher,wais,and http) if you have
sockd running on the bastion host.

I disagree. The proxy should go outside the firewall: Cern reached
with a simple app gateway or via a bastion allowed IP address works
just fine. I don't want to use socks or a whole bunch of other
proxies for wais, gopher, http, ftp, etc.
