Squid3 or Squid2 … Your thoughts...



  • Hello,

    I am about to install the Squid package and Squidguard package.

    The setup already has HAVP installed.

    I am looking for a setup that I can use to install at my customers locations as a way to scan for virus / malware and to do web content filtering.

    I want to know what your thoughts are on installing packages that are "beta" or "experimental" in a production environment. I must tell you that it makes me a little nervous…

    Is the "stable" versions of these packages proven? Squid and Squidguard v2 ...

    Thank you for your insight and advice.
    Kell



  • I used both squid2 and squid3-dev, I liked squid3-dev more for it's built in antivirus and https filtering capabilities



  • Thank you for your input. I will test with v3 and see.
    If it has antivirus, maybe I can skip having HAVP installed…
