Of cource Squid does cache files and as long as you modify the paramete=
r
maximum_object_size you can allow very large files to be cached (of cou=
rse
you must arrange cache_dir size accordingly), even MS serivice packs.
This might reduce the cache hit ratio, since the cache could be rapidly=

filled with large files.

Hello,

I manager wants us to look at a ISA server to to replace o=
ur
existing linux
firewall with squid. God only knows why since the box is running great =
and
we
have had NO problems with squid or the firewall features.

Anyways ... so I was reading up the ISA server and so far have only fou=
nd
very
vague technical descriptions and think we will stay with squid.

Anyways the ISA web cache is supposed to be able to cache files that ar=
e
downloaded. I have never noticed if squid does this, but is there a lim=
it
on the
size of a cache file. For example if I download a M$ service pack --- c=
ould
it
stay in cache for everyone else to download ?
