• Hi, I just setup my first pfsense 1.2.2 and all is working great except for squidGuard. I successfully installed squid 2.6.21_08 and squidGuard 1.3-2. and tried to configure it by following the video tutorial from here. But my squidGuard is not blocking any sites. I search this forum and google but I couldn't find a resolution for my issue. Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance!

    Here is my squidGuard log:

  • The errors seem to indicate it doesn't like your redirector stuff.
    I have my redirector set to int with a message that says "DENIED" to my users. What do you have this set to?


  • Thanks for the quick reply, I have mine set to– Error: You are prohibited to access this website.

    Does the message makes a difference?

    BTW - I edited my message to "DENIED" and still won't block any website. Any suggestions please? Thanks in advance!

    Here's my latest logs:

    /var/squidGuard/log/sg_configurator.log

    I don't quite understand the line that says "error" then "sg_redirector_base_url…."  - in my log.


  •         # log
            sg_addlog("sg_create_config: add rewrites: \n success $log_entr_added \n error $log_entr_err", 1);
    

    Small non-critical bug.
    If after 'error' message any msg not exists - then all correct in you config.


  • Thanks for all the information.

    I was able to solve my issue by reinstalling squid and made sure that the service is stable. All is working fine now.

    Again, thank for all the help. PFSense rocks!!!
