    Setting configuration file for squidGuard


    Hi,

    I am trying to create a transparent filtering proxy server for my organization. However, I have not had much experience with setting configuration files (I configure most programs through webmin) and I was wondering if anybody could give me any ideas on how to correctly set the configuration file for squidGuard. I have tried to set webmin before but with no luck. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    you can configure squid thru webmin right away, to configure squidguard you need to install the module niemueller.de - webmin modules - SquidGuard Configuration

    makes life much easier and when you initially run the module, if you havne't set up squidguard in squid, it will do it for you

    Hi,

    If I have installed the webmin module for squid guard, does this mean that I do not need to do any configuration in the squid Guard webmin file?

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for your help and Webmin has helped me a lot. However, I'm still stuck on configuring squid guard. I have uploaded my squidGuard configuration file for you to have a look at:

    dbhome /usr/local/squidGuard/db/
    logdir /usr/local/squidGuard/log/

    source Users {
    ip 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.100
    }

    destination bl_warez {
    domainlist warez/domains
    urllist warez/urls
    }

    destination bl_audio-video {

    urllist audio-video/urls
    }

    }

    destination bl_aggressive {

    urllist aggressive/urls
    }

    destination bl_hacking {

    }

    destination bl_redirector {

    urllist redirector/urls
    }

    destination bl_violence {
    domainlist violence/domains
    urllist violence/urls
    }

    destination bl_gambling {
    domainlist gambling/domains
    urllist gambling/urls
    }

    destination bl_spyware {
    domainlist spyware/domains
    urllist spyware/urls
    }

    destination bl_suspect {
    domainlist suspect/domains
    urllist suspect/urls
    }

    destination bl_drugs {
    domainlist drugs/domains
    urllist drugs/urls
    }
    acl {

    Users {
    redirect Google
    }
    }

    Note that I have managed to get Squid Proxy Server and SARG installed and they are able to interact, and I have managed to install both squidGuard and the squidGuard webmin module, but I have not got the filtering on squid guard working.
