Squid authentication


I use RedHat9

I find the ncsa_auth and the password files by "Search for Files" mail menu program, and I configured the squid authentication like that:

auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth /etc/passwd
auth_param basic children 5
auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server
auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours

acl password proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow password

When I want to use internet by any browser (Internet explorer 6, Konqueror) the authentication program appears. It's ok, but when I type the username and password the authentication program doesn't accept them.

My passwd file is like that:

root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash
user1:x:503:503:user1:/home/user1:/bin/bash
etc.


Did I forget something or my passwd file is incorrect?

It appears you are trying to use the /etc/passwd file - the file that is used to authenticate users before they log on to the linux/unix system.

If you want to use this file, I think you need to use getpwam instead of ncsa,

Check this site if you want to use ncsa auth.

I've red it already, but this is an old version, and my files take place in other destinations.
The problem is still alive!

If you want nsca auth, you will need to create a file as per htpasswd specs. If you have apache installed, then you should find htpasswd utility on your system. Create a password file using htpasswd and assign this password file to ncsa_auth

I've found the htpasswd file, and I've seen its contents by kwrite.
I've seen only unknow characters.

How can I create a password file using htpasswd?

I've made a new pasword file, but the proxy still doesn't allow me to use internet. It seems like authentication program doesn't recognize my password.
Have you any other idea?

I've made it, but I've only reconfigured squid (squid -k reconfigure).
I should reload it?
