Squid 0.4.36_# Blocking Transparent Proxy



  • Since I upgraded squid to version 0.4.36_#

    When I enable squid proxy in transparent mode, I can see traffic being forwarded to the Barracuda Cloud Content Filtering service but squid real time information shows Status: TCP_DENIED/403 any internet web site. In the previous version 0.4.36 I did not have this issue.

    Why would squib now be taking this action in the newer package?
    How can I stop this from happenings?
    If I can/t fix it, where do I find squid version 0.4.36?
    How do I install it manually?



  • To go back to a previous working version of squid, I found a firewall with the version and copied down the package file from the cache directory.
    This documentation assumes Putty is installed on a Windows machine.
    To copy the file down from the working firewall use the following command from the directory listed:
    C:\Program Files\PuTTY>pscp RPAdmin@###.###.###.### (working firewall IP):/var/cache/pkg/pfSense-pkg-squid-0.4.36.txz c:\temp
    logged into non working firewall
    Removed newer squid package
    Installed sudo package
    copied file up using the following command correct for firewall IP:
    C:\Program Files\PuTTY>pscp M:\PFSense\Working-packages\pfSense-pkg-squid-0.4.36.txz RPAdmin@<###.###.###.###(target IP of Firewall)>:/home/directory
    Enter Username password when prompted
    Installed the package using the following command: sudo pkg install ./pfSense-pkg-squid-0.4.36.txz

    Bug still exists in new version of squid 0.4.36_#
