I have been running the Netscape proxy server on NT for about a month and
have been pretty satisfied with it. There are a few things that are not
real intuitive about their configuration screens, but it makes
administration allot easier. We have been using CERN for a couple of years
now and I have been looking at Netscape and Apache as possible
replacements. I have been tasked with applying quite a few restrictions on
users prior to going out of our firewall and Netscape seems to handle this
better than the others. I will be done testing by the end of this week and
will let you know in more detail what I came up with if you want.
