• I have SquidGuard setup to block certain categories at a couple clients.  Today I use a free blacklist site to pull down the categories, however I want to update these maybe daily or weekly so the categories have the most recent sites.  I know I can go to the url place and do an update, however is there a way to do this in an automated feature?

    Can I setup a cron job to run a command line that updates this.  Does anyone know the command to do an update to the SquidGuard database from the url given?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!


  • Hi Zach,

    I know this is a late reply but thought I'd complete the thread in case someone else is looking for the same info…

    You can set a Cron job to auto update blacklists.
    The process is described here: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,35479.0.html
