    The SRX is not a forward or reverse proxy server.


    For some of the screen functions it can behave like a proxy by responding to intial syn to prevent syn flood attacks by verifying the end host does intend to complete the handshake.  But if the host responds the SRX closes the connection then allows th full connection through to the end server.


    The SRX can cache DNS responses and act as a DNS proxy for future requests of the same name.


    And the SRX will proxy arp for addresses that use NAT within interfaces subnets.
