Allow HTTPS traffic straight out through WAN with squid?

  • Hi,

    We've got PFSense setup here all is working great in transparent mode, HTTPS works when manually specifying the proxy server but is there not a way of just letting HTTPS traffic straight through the WAN interface, no filtering required. Using a standalone squid install we can get http & https traffic working in transparent mode but can't understand why or how to get this working in PFSense.

    Any help would be great.


    Using PFSense 2.1, Squid 3 (Have tried Squid 2 & Squid 3-Dev)

    By default the firewall won't touch HTTPS with squid in transparent mode. Make sure your firewall rules allow access on the LAN interface from your LAN subnet to anywhere on port 443. So long as the rules pass it and squid doesn't touch it, it will go right out.
