Squid Guard basic setup

  • Hi all,

    I've done a bit of research on Squid Guard and it seems like a good solution for what I am looking for:

    Basic "NSFW" website blocking. Some of the tutorials online showed how to set up cache, to optimize downloads across the LAN for others when exact data has been previously downloaded - but that's not a feature I really need at the moment.

    Could I simply install the Squid Guard package, and add the "shalla secure services"

    And deny the categories I want to block?

    We have a DNS server and I thought I saw in one of the guides that DNS resolver has to be enabled with as the IP so that devices look to the firewall for what traffic is allowed / denied but I am hesitant to do this without having a better understanding of what each change entails.

    Can someone point me to the direction of a noob guide or provide barebones instructions / advise for simply blacklisting the categories in the "shalla" list once it is added?
