Squid2 does not allow passthru to allowed hosts defined in captive portal



  • Hi,
    i'm running pfsense 2.2 on a hp proliant g160. I configured a captive portal with radius authentication and/or vouchers. Everything worked fine (pfsense is a really fine Piece of software) 'till i would boost our slow internet link using squid2 in transparent mode on the same box (using more or less the default Settings of squid2).
    Every time from now when i wanted to browse one of the allowed hosts (bypassing the captive Portal authentication) i get presented the captive portal login page.
    any ideas?

    regards sumartho

    Do you mean that when squid isn't activated the "allowed hosts" (IP and/or MAC) list works - and when squid is installed and activated, the "allow hosts" list isn't working ?

    This boils down to a "package (== squid) is broken / has bugs".

    squid2 is something that just should not be used on pfS 2.2



  • What should be used as a proxy server
