We are developing a gateway product. As a part of
our gateway we want to implement the transparent proxy for the TCP
based protocols FTP, HTTP, TELENET, HTTPS and SSH. There are couple of

3. Also, we would like to support the Caching for the HTTP and FTP

4. Also, we are running our gateway on Brdige mode (by

software in our gateway product. Hope you will answer my questions as
soon as possible. So our company can make a decision to choose

available which provides these functionalities?
Looking forward to your kind support.
