Squid as a proxt for SSH connections

  • Now that I have pfsense, squid works great for all my HTTP/S stuff, but just cannot figure out how to proxy my putty SSH sessions through it.  I tried adding 22 under "ACL SafePorts", that didnt help.  Also tried adding 22 under "ACL SSLPorts"

    I used to use openwrt, and it had this ultralight proxy that worked really well.  it was a regular port 3128 proxy that handled all my HTTP/S and also allowed me to use my local putty SSH connections to connect out through this proxy.  So I just cant see squid not supporting this.  But cant figure it out???

    I tried setting my putty client as HTTP SOCKS4 and SOCK5 5 proxy client, no help
    I also tried adding the proxy client, and remote SSH server IPs in the unrestricted list, no help.  at this point im out of ideas as to what to try

    squid is http proxy, while I am guessing you were using Srelay on openwrt which is socks - completely different.

    There is a Srelay for freebsd - if you really want support you could install the freebsd package - ask to get it added to the pfsense repo.
