Squid: Proxy with Optimising Web Delivery

Squid is a caching proxy for the Web supporting HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and more. It reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator.


  1. The app will not ask anything while installation.
  2. There is no update script.
  3. The app can not be multi-instance(can't be installed many times on same server).
  4. LDAP is there(Registered users can use there login username and password to browse internet through the proxy)
  5. Port number to be used will be sent to the admin mail of the Yunohost server.
  6. The username and password is asked twice first time you start the browser(I have no idea why this happens).

Configure Squid3 for Firefox

  1. Go to Preferences -> General -> network proxy
  2. Select Manual proxy configuration
  3. In HTTP Proxy enter your domain name or server IP and in Port enter the port sent to your admin email.
  4. Check Use this proxy server for all protocols.
  5. Under No Proxy for enter this localhost,
  6. Save and restart the Firefox.
