OK. fair enough.

Project: I have been awarded a project in which I am changing out an 
entire cities infrastructure to be based upon FreeBSD. They will have 
their ISP demark, which then gets fed into a physical firewall appliance 
bolted to the wall, which then feeds the FreeBSD server containing the 
proxy server into NIC #0.

NIC #1 (on a different subnet) will then feed the attached devices of 
the city, PC's, smart devices, printers via a 16 port switch.

The purpose of the proxy servers is to put a configurable layer of proxy 
between the average city user, and the internet at large. Currently the 
city is infected with a lot of Windows virus', mainly do to the users 
(at this time) having unmanaged, unfiltered access to the Internet.....


Sincerely and respectfully,
