Squid3 Proxy for Yunohost with LDAP
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.
- The app will not ask anything while installation.
- There is no update script.
- The app can not be multi-instance(can't be installed many times on same server).
- LDAP is there(Registered users can use there login username and password to browse internet through the proxy)
- Port number to be used will be sent to the admin mail of the Yunohost server.
- The username and password is asked twice first time you start the browser(I have no idea why this happens).
Configure Squid3 for Firefox
- Go to Preferences -> General -> network proxy
- Select Manual proxy configuration
