SquidGuard vs. DansGuardian



  • Dear all,

    Could somebody advise me about SquidGuard vs. DansGuardian regarding to performance and stability?
    Which one is 'better' to use. When using Squid-Reverse as the proxy I assume SquidGuard is smoothly integrated, is it not?

    Thanks in advance,
    Canefield



  • Both are stable and used toghether with squid.

    Squidguard has a time based acls and dansguardian has content filtering.

    If you need acl wih dansguardian, you can do this on squid.



  • Hi marcelloc ,Squid +Dansguardian provide content filtering in addition to acl.Is there  performans losing ?

    Not at all. I'm using it in production with more levels without issues.

    dansguaridan + squid works fine

    A complex setup I could get working was:

    squid_with_kerberos_auth_and_no_cache  –> dansguardian ---> varnish ---> squid_cache
