Squid is a pretty cool Linux proxy server but there are 2 things you
need to do once it is installed before you can use it.
1. Creat the swap directories by typing on the command line
2. By default Squid denies all access. You need to enable access for
your network. You do this by editing the /etc/squid/squid.conf file.
Scroll through the file until you come to a point that says:
# ACCESS CONTROLS
Then look for this section:
"# INSERT YOUR OWN RULE(S) HERE TO ALLOW ACCESS FROM YOUR CLIENTS"
At this point add something to the file like:
acl my_network 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
http_access allow my_network
The acl command creates an access control list and the http_access
grants access based on the acl rule. You can insert anything you want
where you see the my_network. Of course the IP address and subnet mask
define the network you are granting access to.
I hope this helps.
