Squid Explicit Mode Cannot Logged HTTPS Domain With Chrome and Firefox



  • Hi all

    I want to try implement logged clients https (domain only like www.facebook.com:443) traffic with Pfsense 2.3.2-RELEASE (amd64) and Squid 3.5.19. I turned off HTTPS/SSL Interception and unchecked transparent mode.

    Once i have configured proxy configuration for the browsers, i can only see https domain with explorer. I cant see https domain with chrome and firefox.

    Thing which i dont understand is when i close chrome or firefox, https domains are logged succesfully.

    I googled but havent found usefull information. Is there any documentation how to install and configure squid with explicit mode in order to logged https domain that is running succesfully with chrome and firefox ?

    How can i fix this ? Any help would be greatly appreciated ?

    Best regards



  • If it works with IE then it should work with Chrome since Chrome uses the standard Windows proxy definition.  Firefox does not, so you must either configure WPAD for it to autodiscover your proxy, or manually configure it.



  • Thank you for your reply

    I tried two methods which are manually configuration and WPAD but neither chrome nor firefox don't works as expected although i was sure that chrome or firefox used proxy configuration. I captured traffic and could see the CONNECT www.facebook.com but squid didn't logged domain in log file.

    Strange thing which i don't understand is if i close chrome or firefox, it works as expected.

    Best regards
