HAVP and Squid -Version 2.0 stable release



  • how to setup HAVP and Squid proxy + port ? - version 2.0 stable release.

    Scheme: {inet}->[HAVP]->[Squid cache]->{clients}
    my configuration:- int - HAVP(8080) transparent - Squid (3128) Transparent - client.

    1.parent for squid - configure HAVP as parent for Squid proxy;
    2.transparent - all 'http' requests on interface(s) will be translated to the HAVP proxy server without any client(s) additional configuration necessary (worked as 'parent for squid' with 'transparent' Squid proxy);

    1 and 2 is the same configuration? if i apply for squid(transparent proxy) .
    the hapv will trigger the http traffic for virus scanning ?

    OR i need to configure HAVP (3125) - Squid (3125).

    please guide.

    many thanks . pfsense really a rock !

    please check my configuration






  • You have to choose only one package in trasparent mode, never both.

    Also understand that transparent proxy does not work with https, just http.

    To use squid to filter/cache http and https you need to setup a proxy server on clients browser.

    so that mean i only need to disable
    http proxy -> (uncheck or disable) Check this for enable proxy.

    am i right?  :)




  • Enable the service and change the proxy mode for something different from transparent.

    what will be the different if i use havp as proxy instead of squid ?

    please guide marc. which one is better?

    if i check with what is my ip . they will know what proxy i using.

    many thanks




  • Always depend on what you need.

    Squid has more options, havp has antivirus.

    they can work together.
