How to enable Whatsapp through the proxy server
I have just installed squid and dansguardian. I can access the internet via http and https. Unfortunately, whatsapp is not working. How do I enable use of whatsapp on the network?
WhatsApp uses ports:
If u want to filter on destination:
Thank you but how do I set up the firewall rules?
Create a alias for all the ports/destinations.
I have created the alias. What's the next step?
Create a firewall rules. With your alias as destination ports.
I have created the rule as shown in the attached. Also see the rest of my rules. The funny thing is messages do seem to come in now. I can see them flash on the locked screen on my iphone but when I unlock the phone and go to whatsapp, nothing appears. Whatsapp seems to be continuously processing.

Your rules are not gonna work like this. You have a allow all rule at the top. That rule allows all traffic.
The firewall works on a first match principal. All your traffic matches your first rule at the moment.
Hi, i have crated alias with the ports, than added the rules on firewall to pass out - this seems to work fine - could anyone check for me if it's safe doing it like this?
