Proxy Server Interfaces - Dual WAN



  • I have successfully got squid, squidguard w/Shallalist & lightsquid installed and working.  Learned how to do a whitelist (thanks dvserg for the how to's). But wondering which interfaces do I bind the proxy server to?  Below are my interfaces.

    WAN1 10.136.31.193
    OPT1 10.136.31.209
    LAN 192.168.150.1

    Below is a portion of the squid.com, currently the proxy server is bound to LAN&OPT1.  Should I bind the WAN&OPT1 or all three?

    /usr/local/etc/squid/squid.conf

    Do not edit manually !

    http_port 192.168.150.1:80
    http_port 10.136.31.210:80
    http_port 127.0.0.1:80 transparent
    icp_port 0

    Thanks.



  • bind it to the interface the proxy should listen to, mostly your LAN…
    if your OPT1 is some VPN-tunnel to your site, you can also bind it to OPT1 if squid should intercept the traffic to port 80 or else on the OPT1 interface...
