Your experiences with transparent squid proxy+embedded?

  • hello,

    I'm setting up an embedded 512M pfsense box, has 512MB ram currently, no other local storage.

    The goal is to serve 5-8 devices via LAN, and a few wireless via OPT1, nothing major (home use/browsing).

    Has anybody attempted to use a similarly-sized box and ran a transparent squid proxy using just available RAM?  Is this a classic case of asking too much from too little hardware?

    It's hard to quantify a benefit without hindsight, which is why I was asking here.  Or maybe the coolness of a full-on router is clouding my judgement (this is WAY nicer than configuring a PIX!!!)
