Squid blocking external visitors to our websites (Solved)



  • I'm running pfSense 2.2.4 with Squid 3.4.10.

    Squid is working but it would block external visitors to our websites (displays the standard squid error page).

    How to I let visitors in? (I don't want to use reverse proxy now if possible, I just hope to get one thing working at a time)

    I have googled for several hours to no avail.

    Thank you!



  • BY default, squid will only act as a web cache of the public Internet for your LAN users.  In that scenario, I don't know how squid would be blocking external users on WAN from accessing your web site.  Did you enable the reverse mode settings?

    I cannot see how on earth is Squid involved here unless you produced some giant PEBKAC such as transparent Squid on WAN.



  • Thank you all! Much much appreciated!

    Yup, that's it, I selected my WAN's in my proxy interface setting which is wrong.

    OK, good that it works now. :)
