Proxy Gateway Server
MailGate comes with pre-defined proxies for all common protocols. In addition there is a Custom Proxy facility for defining less common proxy requirements which includes a feature-rich scripting facility.

Full local cache to reduce connection load with storage definable by number of days or disk space. Includes a user-definable URL filter to control Website access. Optional user logon and full site access logging.
  • FTP Proxy - for FTP gateway services.
  • SOCKS Proxy - supports both versions 4 and 5.
  • DNS relay - to proxy DNS user requests (required for some Java applets).
    Real™ Audio Visual Proxy
