MCSE : Implementing and Supporting Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0
More than a "cram guide," this is a complete, expert guide to planning, implementing, managing, and troubleshooting Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0! Start with a detailed, practical overview of Microsoft Proxy Server, and its role as an extensible firewall and content cache server. Understand Microsoft Proxy Server's architecture and components. Learn how to plan your proxy server implementation -- first in a single environment and then in a complex enterprise network that will utilize multiple proxy server systems. Walk through installing Microsoft Proxy Server, and implementing packet filtering -- with detailed coverage of troubleshooting, monitoring, and tuning. You'll find dozens of exercises and questions to help make sure you've fully mastered the material -- both for the exam and the real world!
