Does squid 3, dansguardian work on 2.2?



  • Has anyone test Squid 3 and/or Squid 3-Dev and Dansguardian on 2.2?

    If it works, which platform i386 or AMD64?

    I want to start testing 2.2 but need them to work before I upgrade my box.. The rest I use, I can wait on.

    I really should start to use VMs but dont have the horsepower right now



  • I just tried squid3-dev on x64 and it fails to start.

    pfSense runs fine as a VMware Workstation virtual machine for basic functionality testing like this.  If you have a Windows box with 8GB or more of RAM, you are great.  I did, in the past, also run on Windows workstations with only 4GB of RAM.  That works so long as you limit your VM to 2GB or less and don't fire more up than say 2 of them at the same time.  Obviously you would not run pfSense as a "real firewall" on a VMware Workstation virtual machine, but for testing packages and stuff it works great.

    I want to add to this… vmWare is basically free for home use. I bought a box just like this for $140.00 and can run almost unlimited pfSense VM's (one at a time, of course), Squid 3.4.6 and Plex Media server and anything else I want to play with on it. Not hard, really, and works like you wouldn't believe. :)

    Edited to add: It's loud, not for the living room, works really well in the bed room as white noise… :)



  • Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I've been thinking about building an ESXi server for some time now.. I'm familiar with the setup (use them at work). Funds are an issue right now for hardware. When I built my home server some time ago, low power consumption was my main concern over horsepower since it runs 24/7. I do have VM Workstation on it that I fire up for testing.. Just never got around adding pfSense to it..

    For squid3-dev, I believe those are similar errors i'm seeing on 2.1.x under i386 since the last time the binary was update



  • I fired up a amd64 VM to test install of packages..

    squid-dev3 has starting issues as mattmon pointed out… I'm pretty sure this is due to its last binary update
    squid3 pbi package not even on files.pfsense.org, I started a new thread for that
    squid2 installed and works (which I was expecting it to work out of the box since its maintained by jimp
    dansguardian installed and started up right away. I was able to have it upstream to squid2
