Squid3+ squidGuard transparent https and facebook (unblock)



  • ok, So I did set everything up and working perfectly facebook blocked! for most users among many other sites.
    and now I got a letter from the chairmen to Unblock facebook for our marketing guy because he needs it for work.
    I did add him to ACL group that alowed socialnet and now he can access facebook.com but…
    it looks like this...

    and I tried everything but I can't seem to find a fix.
    any help?



  • I'm still having this issue I cleared cache on squid and on firefox/chrome/IE its happening on every browser even mobile safari.



  • You mention ACLs and socialnet, but you don't say if you're actually using squidguard.  Is this guy part of any other ACLs?  Do you have the facebook.com domain blocked some other way, like DNS?

    I am using squidguard.
    and I'm only blocking facebook.com through socialnet option in squidguard.(no DNS or any other kind of blocking)
    and the way I tried unblocking it for him is by giving him a static IP then adding that to a group ACL in squidguard.
    facebook is working fine if I bypass his IP from proxy.



  • Nvm I found the fix.
    I blocked akamaihd.net in squid3 ACL because it was using so much bandwith and its aprently very important to facebook.
    after removing it everything is now back to normal



  • Yeah, you can't go around blocking CDNs or you will have problems with lots of popular sites.
