Projects / TrustWall HTTP Proxy

TrustWall HTTP Proxy

TrustWall HTTP Proxy protects your internal Web server by acting as an inbound proxy (like a reserve Squid proxy). It can also work as a secure outbound proxy to protect your browser client. It allows you to inspect almost every detail of the HTTP protocol headers, including the URL request line, the server version, user-agent, referrer, cookie, query, etc., in a easy-to-use script-like configuration file. This program is generally considered an "Expert Tool"; you will need knowledge of the HTTP protocol to configure the proxy properly.
