LightSquid report configuration (User RealName)



  • I installed and configured lightsquid in pfsense and its working fine and able to generate report…

    But I want more detailed report if it is possible.

    So the reports looks like this

    Top Sites Report

    Big Files Report

    Time   User         Real Name   Connect Bytes %     Group

    1 192.168.1.102     ?             1021 19.8 M 91.4% ?
    2         192.168.1.150       ?             139 1.9 M 8.5%  ?

    So my concern is the REAL NAME (?)

    Can you help me how could I generate a report that reveal the name/username of the computer/user?

    it should be like this

    Time   User         Real Name   Connect Bytes %     Group

    1 192.168.1.102     NORIEL      1021 19.8 M 91.4% ?
    2         192.168.1.150     James        139 1.9 M 8.5%  ?

    Thanks in advance!



  • I'm not even sure it would know the user unless you're using some type of authentication to allow access to the proxy.  Without that, I suspect the best you can do is an IP address or resolved DNS name.

    I have captive portal enabled sir…



  • OK, so in Lightsquid config, have you tried the alternate IP Resolve methods like Demo or Simple or Squidauth?



  • I found something here http://lightsquid.sourceforge.net/How%20It%20Work.html

    but I dont know where to enter those commands

    Yes I tried. Nothing change



  • It doesn't change any historical data, so you would have to make the change and then wait and run a new report.  I don't know if this works as I don't have a captive portal.  Just thinking up suggestions.

    That is immensely useful to everyone else here… NOT!  ::) >:(

    Would you be nice and share your result(s) with us all, because it could be also interesting
    for us too? An forum is living from those entries and fixed or solved out problems by naming
    or showing a dedicated method.

    I didn't post the solution YET because Im currently testing it on my setup..and it sometimes work sometimes not..that't why… I always love to share my solutions,my way of giving back and saying thanks to the community...  I can prove that...

    anyway, I'm trying the method and instructions from this link http://lightsquid.sourceforge.net/How It Work.html

    I'll post the guide here or how I did it once I tested that it really works. Thanks
