    so just like the title, what exactly the different between the two? and how to instal it

    because i heard freebsd is good for setting up, proxy server.

    so please help me how to install and configure it, to become a blazing fast proxy server (btw i will use it for my Internet caffe, around 15 client)

    I never saw this post?

    Not a lot of difference, mostly philosophy.

    Installation is straight forward for both, it's better to "just do it"
    and if you have any problems, just post.

    You should understand how the package manager and/or ports works.
    Read a little and you will have no problem.
    wahdangun says thanks.

    PF should be able to do what you ask and run on either
    FreeBSD or OpenBSD which is it's native platform.

    I'm not currently doing anything like that, so I'm
    not of much help... sorry :eek:
