Strange problem with Squid (pfSense_Lusca packages by Chudy)
After install and configure the package (pfSense Lusca) in pfSense 1.2.2 I discover that,
non-Transparent => Browser with Manual Proxy (3128) => Internet Surfing OK
non-Transparent => Browser with no Proxy (direct) => Internet Surfing OK
Transparent => Browser with Manual Proxy (3128) => Internet Surfing OK
Transparent => Browser with no Proxy (direct) => No Internet Connection (Connecting to www…....)
the only way I can make Transparent mode running is to add a Rules in firewall,
Proto Source Port Destination Port Gateway Schedule Description
TCP LAN Net * 127.0.0.1 80 (HTTP) *
Last time when I was using Squid 2.7.7 packages it wasn't necessary to do this.
1. Is it a bug in pfSense Lusca packages?
2. Is it OK for me to just continue using the above setting?
check enable transparent proxy at webgui,
check at console :
pfctl -sn |grep http
and check :
squidclient -p port-squid cache_object://your-ip-squid-box/config |grep transparent
how to check if the Lusca package works perfectly? i just see url changes in proxy report..
use squidclient command
e.g @ console type
#squidclient -p 3128 cache_object://localhost/info
you can change 3128 with your squid listen port and localhost with your proxy ip
use only squidclient mgr:info
