Squid transparent proxy not working

  • Hi,

    I seem to have the same issue as https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=87577.0 .

    • Installed squid

    • Enabled proxy on all my interfaces (including loopback), except WAN

    • Enabled Transparent Proxy

    • Enabled SSL filtering - Splice all, on all interfaces (except WAN)

    When I configure my browser to connect via proxy 3128, both http as well as https connections are logged. However, in transparent mode I expect Squid to work without client configuration. It doesn't. Disabling the manual proxy in my browser makes squid stop logging connections..

    I checked /tmp/rules.debug | grep 3128, but nothing shows up. So I suspect Squid is not creating the redirect rule?

    Running on PFsense 2.3.4-RELEASE and Squid 0.4.37

  • And… it suddenly started working when trying to debug another issue I was having (https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=134872.0). Not a clue what has solved it.

    edit: I'm stumped. The access log shows that it started working 40 minutes ago. I did reload the filter, but I had done that many times before (including restart). Anyway, this is resolved.

  • I assume it also has to do with a blocking shellcmd process, which caused my other problem.
