    overriding squid block


    hai to all,
    in the recent days in my office we configured a proxyblocking for sites such as facebook&orcut . for a few days it was gone fine, but then we find someone still using these blocked sites.after a detailed look we find out the simple trick those people used.
    ie they simply add facebook.com in the proxy configuration of firefox browser located under edit>preference>advanced>network>settings>manual proxy
    and it look like

    no proxy for :127.0.0.1,facebook.com
    it simply connected to face book.com

    my squid configuration is just by creating a blocklist.acl file and put the
    needed entries there
    what i have to do to solve this issue?
    expecting your valuable replies soon....

    Perhaps something at this site will help with that.

    You can also screw w/them by resolving facebook.com to 127.0.0.1 in their hosts file.
