pretty simple question: anyone know of any free proxy servers for windows? I'm currently using squid (which is great, btw) but it doesn't handle http 1.1.

So, anyone know of any other suggestions?

  • HTTP cache
  • Connect to ICQ and MSN easily
  • HTTP 1.1 persistent connections, RFC2616 and RFC2518 compliant. See Compliancy below.
  • Demand Dialling, auto connect/disconnect
  • URL filtering has been replaced by Resource Security which allows username password authentication and access to
  • resources.
  • URL and IP address filtering from imported Ban Lists
  • Remote access to display statistics of users
  • Access controlled by user and calendar
  • Resources include IP addresses, ports, URLs, paths, IP services
  • Comprehensive access logs which are user configurable

  • Run as a service under Win NT/2000/XP/2003 or Win98/Me

+1 - I have done some crazy things with FreeProxy back in the day – Terry May 5 '09 at 14:29
can confirm it works with windows 2008 standard edition. I've made the proxy cache save to a USB drive/disk :) – Pure.Krome May 14 '09 at 2:36

3proxy looks promising. Supports HTTP1.1 according to the release notes.
