Hi Brina

This question is most definitely inappropriate for SuSE-Security, you really should try one of TIS's or NAI's mailinglists.
Having said that.
I have not used TIS FWTK for along time, but I do know Gauntlet fairly well, which is based on TIS.
In Gauntlet, although it does have a proxy label as "SSL Proxy" it is infact just a copy of the Plug Proxy. Therefore, I would suggest that you will need to use the Plug Proxy on TIS as well. Assuming that by SSL, you infact mean HTTPS, you simply need to configure a copy of the Plug Proxy to Listen and forward requests on port 443.

If you would prefer to run something with a better (GNU) Liscense than TIS, you might want to take a look at the Obtuse FWTK from

I Hope that Helps
