Squidguard and https

  • I have Pfsense 2.3.4-RELEASE (amd64) running with Squid 3.5.26 + ClamAV 0.99.2_3  + Squidguard 1.16.2, everything working fine with HTTP (pfsense listening on port 80 only), but I would like to use HTTPS instead. So I have the webConfigurator only on HTTPS.

    I have a certificate issued by GoDaddy installed, but when I set pfsense to listen for HTTPS/443, the squidguard error/block pages do not work as they redirect to the error page by IP address, which does not match the cert.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what can/should be done here?


  • I read that I should edit "/usr/local/pkg/squidguard_configurator.inc" if so, which is the line that needs to be edited?

    Could it be line 1246:
    $rdr_path = "http://$guiip:$guiport" . REDIRECT_BASE_URL;

    You do not need to edit anything in the code/files. Just the GUI settings.

    Set the redirect type to "Ext URL Found" and then drop the full URL into your "Redirect Info" box.


    That setting might be on your Common ACL or other ACL configurations.
