MikroTik Web Proxy Simple Configuration
Web Proxy is one of the features in mikrotik router. By using this web proxy feature, you can save internet bandwidth and speed up the connection, because when you and your users accessing a website, some of the content of the website will be cache in memory or disk mikrotik. And when you open a website that is stored in the cache mikrotik, access to the website will be faster.
MikroTik RouterOS performs proxying of HTTP and HTTP-proxy (for FTP and HTTP protocols) requests. Proxy server performs Internet object cache function by storing requested Internet objects, i.e., data available via HTTP and FTP protocols on a system positioned closer to the recipient in the form of speeding up customer browsing by delivering them requested file copies from proxy cache at local network speed. MikroTik RouterOS implements the following proxy server features.
Regular HTTP proxy – customer (itself) specify what is proxy server for him
Transparent proxy – customer does not know about the proxy being enabled and there isn’t need any additional configuration for web browser of client.
Access list by source, destination, URL and requested method (HTTP firewall)
Cache access list to specify which objects to cache, and which not.
Direct Access List – to specify which resources should be accessed directly, and which – through another proxy server
Logging facility – allows to get and to store information about proxy operation
Parent proxy support – allows to specify other proxy server, (‘if they don’t have the requested object ask their parents, or to the original server.)
