Transparent Mode with User Validation
Start off with what we got: pfsense 2.2.4 with Squid 4.3.9 and Squidguard 1.9.15. All works with failover and Squid set up as transparent.
there are 4 LAN connections 2x Internet connection with Failover, 1x LAN, 1x WFi
Our question: how can we set that the proxy settings are passed on to all devices, regardless of Device and/or Browser, (transparent works), 1 Internet domain should be available without User Validation, any other Internet sites would require a logon.
Thanks for any support. Just didn't find anything.

Probably because it's complete nonsense.
My question was how can we do what the transparent does, without using the transparent mode? Have tried with WPAD but not working yet.
Is this a proper option, or is there a better way?
BTW Thanks for the links, helpful info for authentication when we get that far.

Once again, no.
WPAD not either?

WPAD will help most clients discover your proxy server on their own. Transparent mode with Squid is crap but seductive so most users flock to it before finding out all the problems with that mode. You should either have your users manually set the proxy on their device, or use WPAD since it's your only other option. Everythint under the Sun seems to work with WPAD with the exception of Android.
Thanks KOM for the info, we had to put the Project on ice for a time, other things :( but Will be starting up again soon. We will be looking for sending Proxy settings automatically or maybe have to set up Website on the Proxy to Redirect.
We just have a WiFi and LAN that we want to provide Internet using a Login with mulitple (2) Internet connections. that was our purpose in choosing pfsense.
Thanks again and any suggestions are appreciated.
The biggest room in the world is the room for improvement.
