Are there any decent proxy programs out there that will filter domains and forward them to specific ip addresses and ports? I'm looking for a proxy that can be configured to take a request, examine the domain it is going to and then forward it to be proxied through other machines on the network (to a specific port on the machine).

I'm running Solaris 8. Preferrably, if anyone knows of a free or cheap program (or open source).

I am using and loving Squid as my Proxy. Its very powerful and easy to set up. I currently have it to block Microsoft sites and block a lot of adds and counters.

Are you using AdZapper for your ad blocking?

I use AdZapper with my Squid proxy server at the house and it simply rocks. Love it!
