Squid3 availible in 2.0-BETA4?

  • I would like to install Squid3 if possible but it isn't listed in the available packages. Is it working at all in 2.0? I wasn't sure how up to date the spreadsheet in the sticky was. If it's not possible to be installed. Is it possible to get the older squid package working with gateway load balancing. I would like to have both setup but with squid enabled the data only seems to go out one WAN port. Any help would be great.

    It may be there, but the package itself hasn't seen any work in quite some time.

    It needs someone who knows quite a bit more about how the squid config format works to step up and get it finished.

    It should be possible to get squid to balance with floating rules, but I haven't yet tried it.

  • Thanks for the info on squid3.

    I have read about creating those rules but was not sure how exactly to set them up in the GUI, and had also noticed people posting that the rules did not work for them. That info may not be current though.

    EDIT: I think I may have this working, by adding a floating rule

    pass out quick route-to { ($WAN $WANIP), ($WAN2 $WAN2IP) } round-robin inet proto tcp from $WANIP to any port = http flags any keep state label "USER_RULE"

    However, I am unable to determine a way to properly test it.

    From the console, try:

    curl http://pfsense.org/ip.php

    If you try that a few times in a row, you should get both IPs returned if it's working.

    I tried this earlier and it didn't work, and ermal and I were testing a few things and couldn't get it quite right. It may take some other NAT tricks to make it happen.

  • yep doesn't seem to be working. It seems like the combination of these two features would be pretty common. I would like to help test and figure out how to make them work together.
