use only one. webproxy is old and based on squid, which has bugs. ip proxy is new, made by mikrotik, and will eventually replace webproxy. it is also faster and will have more features.

I'm confused Normis ... when I go here: http://www.mikrotik.com/testdocs/ros/2.9/
I see HTTP Proxy and Web Proxy. Which one is the Mikrotik version?

'web-proxy' package provides two options,
'ip web-proxy' that is based on squid,
'ip proxy' MikroTik proxy that does not support caching.

however the NEW 'web-proxy test' package provide one option,
'ip proxy' that is MikroTik proxy and supports caching.

So what proxy prefered? IP PROXY or IP WEB-PROXY?

I have problem using (maybe bugs) this Mikrotik Proxy, because when someone accessed the web using Mikrotik Proxy for the first time, the page displayed will "Mikrotik Http Proxy Error 404: File Not Found". Then if I pressed 'refresh (F5)' again and again and the real page will be shown eventually. So what could it be?

If I upgrade the Mikrotik (my Mikrotik version is 2.9.6) will it resolve the problem?

Thx

the new "webproxy test" in 2.9.44 is preferred. it has caching, is faster, and more reliable. made by mikrotik.

When enabled on the gateway, non of my clients can access pop3 or smtp.
This is simply enabling proxy.
No Nat rules or anything like that.

Happens with 2.9.43, 2.9.44, V3beta9, and 3beta10.

I tried set about web-proxy. But I still think some problem. And could I ask you a question?

Doesn’t web-proxy support dynamic web? How does I set that I can dynamic web storage on web-proxy cache?

Could you give a favor? Thank you so much…

My command of web-proxy’s setup….

Exam:

/ ip web-proxy

set enabled=yes src-address=0.0.0.0 port=8080 hostname="proxy" \

transparent-proxy=yes parent-proxy=0.0.0.0:0 \

cache-administrator="webmaster" max-object-size=500KiB \

cache-drive=secondary-master max-cache-size=1000KiB \

max-ram-cache-size=1000KiB



/ ip firewall nat

add chain=dstnat action=redirect to-ports=8080 src-address=192.168.1.0/24 \

dst-address=!192.168.1.1 dst-port=80 protocol=tcp comment="" disabled=no

Proxy is caching HTTP and FTP, transparent proxy is caching only HTTP.

kiwi0428, what do you have in 'ip web-proxy print' for status ?
http://www.mikrotik.com/testdocs/ros/2. ... 4212475922
Make sure that DNS servers are configured on 'ip dns' menu.
