how do i go about configuring squid guard can any one share their configs with me so that i can use it and work from there i had problems configuring it the first time
If your're talking about Squidguard..this tutorial will get you started.
nice tutorial is there a way that i can block certain sites eg WWW.jump.com or restrict access to the internet to all computer except for a few, i'm using transparent proxy since it seemed to be the fastest way to implement squid
You can add a blacklist or Whitelist in the destinations tab. Just add the sites you want to block or allow.
ok i dont think any traffic is passing through the proxy server because the sites i blocked can still be accessed i used transparent proxy since it seemed like the fastest way to setup only way it seems that computers are forwarded is if i enter the proxy server address into the web browser
You and i have the same problem then, i THINK that transparent proxy only filters normal port 80 ie HTTP
and not 443 HTTPS. Ill have to test this tonight.
I dont want to configure the proxy settings on each computer either, because I have to install DHCP on
the network next week, which will defeat the purpose of "not having to go to each computer and configure
network settings manually" :/
https does not work with transparent mode. It can't, due to the way SSL security works.
As for configuring the proxy settings, have a look here:
