Slackware Current Repository by Conraid ====================================================================== Squid (a popular free and open source Web proxy server and web cache) Squid is a high-performance proxy caching server for web clients, supporting FTP, gopher, and HTTP data objects. HOME: http://www.squid-cache.org ====================================================================== NOTE: If you need to start squid at boot, make sure /etc/rc.d/rc.squid is executable and add the following to /etc/rc.d/rc.local: if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.squid ]; then /etc/rc.d/rc.squid start fi ============================ Uncomment and edit the following lines in /etc/squid.conf: http_port <port> <option> Set <port> to the port you want Squid to listen on, default is 3128 Set <option> to 'transparent' if you want to make Squid a transparent proxy through the use of IPTables DNAT/REDIRECT rules. Note that this now replaces the older method of using httpd_accel. Leave blank otherwise. cache_peer, never_direct/always_direct If you have a parent cache, put it here. The administrators of the parent cache typically provided you with instructions. You should always ask permission before adding a parent cache. See also the never_direct/always_direct directives. Note, if you don't have a cache_peer, you'll most likely need to use 'always_direct allow all' cache_dir <storage> /var/log/squid/cache <mem> <L1> <L2> Set <storage> to 'aufs' if you want an asynchronous storage facility that allows Squid to access the disk without blocking; otherwise use 'ufs' here. Set <mem> to the number of megabytes you want Squid to use for its cache, default is '100' Set <L1> to the number of top-level directories to use for the cache, default is '16' Set <L2> to the number of sub-directories to use for the cache, default is '256' acl, http_access, icp_access Access control lists. This is important because it prevents people from stealing your network resources. To fill in the "allowed_hosts" ACL, use your network address (for instance 192.168.10.0 and your network mask. acl manager proto cache_object acl localhost src 127.0.0.1/32 acl localnet src 192.168.10.0/24 http_access allow manager localhost http_access deny manager http_access allow localnet http_access deny all icp_access allow localnet icp_access deny all cache_mgr Put here the e-mail address of the manager: cache_effective_user If you must start Squid as root, find a safe user and group to run as after startup (typically "nobody" and "nogroup"). Do not use "root", for security reasons. visible_hostname The host name you advertise for the cache. ============================== After editing squid.conf to your liking, run Squid from the command line TWICE: % /usr/sbin/squid -z % /usr/sbin/squid Check in the cache.log (/var/log/squid/cache.log) that everything is all right. ======================
