Squidguard error page?

  • When I block a site with Squidguard I get this error message:

    The requested URL could not be retrieved

    The following error was encountered:

    Squid did  not receive any data for his request.

    I tried to set a custom error message and using a blank page but neither work. Why?

    Pfsense 2.0.1

  • Are you using squid as a transparent proxy?

    If so, you have to set it up specifically like it says on the common acl page of the squidguard config.

    Under "Redirect Mode" choose one of the approved choices. (see text below)

    Select redirect mode here.
    Note: if you use 'transparent proxy', then 'int' redirect mode will not accessible.
    Options: ext url err page , ext url redirect , ext url as 'move' , ext url as 'found'.

    I chose "ext url redirect (enter url)"

    Then In the redirect info box right below it put the full url of the redirect page.

    Works great on several different 2.0.1-RELEASE (amd64)
    boxes I've just built for clients.

  • Thank you I'll try that out.
