Allowing Mails thru Squid Proxy?


Hi there,

I have configured squid as a HTTP proxy. The web browsers in my local network have been configured to go thru this at port number 3128 and that is fine. Most of my people are using Microsoft Outlook on windows and Ximian Evolution on Linux. They are not able to send and receive messages. Whenever I try to send/receive, I get an error message as follows :-

Error Fetching Mail
Could not connect to POP Server on <IP Address of mail server> (port 110)
Network is unreachable

Mail server is being hosted at a different location across the internet.

Please help

Not quite sure what you mean ... squid is an application
proxy, and will only handle requests to HTTP ports, unless
you change the ports... if you DID include pop and/or
smtp Squid won't know what to do with them - you need
a firewall that does NAT/masquerading for you for that,
not squid.


Cheers,
Tink

Hi Tink,

Thanks for the reply. I need to have squid as I am restricting specific IPs in my local network to visit only a couple of domains for them to access. rest have full access. If I also include NAT on the same machine, what would happen? am sure NAT will work for email clients pretty well, but what about the regular browsing? would that go thru the squid or the nat?

Well ... you can always suppress given IPs or even MAC
addresses using iptables, not a biggie ... :) I limit our kids
online times by locking their MAC out via crontab ;)


Cheers,
Tink
