SquidGuard and URLBlacklist



  • Hi There

    I originally set up the squidGuard with Shalla's blacklist, and it seemed to work fine, I got some categories shown in the 'default' page (attached below).
    Unfortunately it didn't hit the pages I wanted it to hit, so I wanted to use the URLblacklist.com list.
    I've entered the download link:
    HTTP://urlblacklist.com/cgi-bin/commercialdownload.pl?type=download&file=bigblacklist
    yesterday.

    But I don't see any change in the categoriez list, shouldn't it do that?




  • I will be looking structure you blacklist from you url in next week.



  • Thanks, let me know if I can be of assistance  ;D

    Hi DVSerg

    Ahh, user error…

    Well, I had the impression that it would automagically fetch the blacklist, but I can see that that is a misunderstanding on my part.
    I experimented a bit further, and after pressing Upload URL it populated the list perfectly.
    Very misleading label IMNSHO.

    It has the URLBlacklist now, and geeez, that's effective, only a few danish sites slipped through (but I'll put a plug in that soon enough :-D).

    Now, while I'm on the subject of bad labels, what does the Blacklist proxy do?
    Is it a way to add to my own blacklist, or how is that to be understood?

    Oh, and does the default work as a baseline, and then all the rest is added on top of it (cumulative)?
    So that if I choose gaming in default, if I don't select it in an ACL it will still have effect for the users in the ACL?
    And again, if I choose gaming in an ACL I will override the default, no matter if it's set to allow or disallow?

    Thanks again
    Kenneth

    You blacklist site have restrictions(limits) for downloading. Yestaday i have messages 'try later...try tomorrow, very mach connections from you ip..'. Now i downloading manually this blacklist and testing him(ploading to pfSense from local ftp server) - all beautiful updated and worked.

    'Blacklist proxy - Blacklist upload proxy' Option for uploading proxy only. You can use any external proxy (public or private) for uploading blacklist.

    So that if I choose gaming in default, if I don't select it in an ACL it will still have >effect for the users in the ACL?
    Eachl ACL's have only self rules. Default - also ACL, but for any users, who is not processed other ACLs.
