Squid Install Question
I new to the world of FreeBSD and pfSense so have a feeling I may get flamed for asking stupid questions.
Anyway, I am testing pfSense to see if it meets a needs of one of our service groups (looks like it will quite well). As part of the test I am looking to install Squid and some of it's other utilities. When I use the package installer from the web interface i get the message:-
_Downloading package configuration file… done.
Saving updated package information... done.
Downloading squid and its dependencies... done.
Checking for successful package installation... failed!
Using the forums I have managed to work out how to do a manual install from the console "pkg_add -r squid" which seemed to go well. I ran "squid -z" to create the cache folders and agaian all seems well.
The main querry I have is shoudl there be a item in the services menu to configure squid? If so I assume that this is not added when you do a manuall install. If so is there a way of adding this or will I need to do all the configuration through config files?
Any help would be appretiated.
I would try re-installing the pkg thru the gui or rebooting your pf and try again. I just re-downloaded Snort a little while ago and that went fine.
Just tried that. Did a reboot and reinstall from Gui and same message. I also tried Snort which again gave me the same error.
You can always reinstall pfsense but this time install only pfsense package.
If you like to Dig. System logs is a good place to start. then try run @ console squid -Nd1 squid will show you the error
Managed to sort it. As this is a test system I have been playing with it plugged into a 2Wire Adsl router. Turns out the 2wires content filter had been switched on and was blocking access to the packages for download.
Cheers for all the help.
