HAVP Setup Questions



  • Hi all,

    I decided to install this package but not quite understanding it

    1.  Can I use transparent proxy mode without Squid package?

    I want to have all http traffic scanned but I don't want to have to setup my clients for this and transparent mode sounds like what I want but I am confused by some of the comments in the settings such as "works as parent for squid…etc."

    1 Yes, you can.
    2 This option for use with Squid package.



  • thanks, it seems to be working the way I intended.

    my pfsense box is a dell poweredge 1750 with dual xeon and 4 GB of RAM and Intel Pro/1000 GT nics.

    right now my plans are for only HAVP and Snort packages.

    Cable broadband ISP with 40 Mb down 5 Mb up.

    Will that box be sufficient?



  • I think enough.
