    hi! everybody
    i am building the firewall. i want to combine iptables and squid. so iptables manages 2,3,4 layers, iptables can not process application layer. squid proxy can do that.

    IPTABLES is your firewall. You can start by reading here, IPTABLES Tutorial.

    Hi,

    Your could find some useful information on the site linuxhomenetworking.com atleast to help you get started with Squid.

    Controlling Web Access with Squid

    The basic for configuring squid.conf is defining ACL on the basis of ip / network, times etc. and then applying these ACLs through http_access allow | deny acl_name directive

    This is just to have you started with squid, you could then look out for various acl options to suit your imagination
