Didn't notice that you're running Slackware, sorry.
Anyway also Slackware has package managers, like pkgtool, slackpkg, slapt-get etc.

Cheers

Code:
LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.5/lib CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.5/include ./configure --enable-external-acl-helpers=session
Don't forget to run "make distclean" before running ./configure

Hi bathory,

I tried the above command you suggested, it came back with errors and didn't install correctly. This is a older machine that wasn't installed with all the packages from the slackware installation disk. So I decided to download Slackware 13.1 and install on a new machine, and installed every package, I installed Squid. Configured it with the --enable-external-acl-helpers=session, and it installed fine. I see squid_session in the /usr/local/squid/libexec/ directory. I see how it installs correctly now, I would to get this to work on the original machine, (installing squid_session) After using pkgtool, I see that I can reinstall a package from the slackware disc. Which package would I need to install from my Slackware disc, so that my Berkeley DB error will go away when I reconfigure Squid?

thanks

Hi,

Looks like Slackware 12.2 comes with both libdb-4.2 and libdb-4.4 libraries.
You can install any of them, as they both provide the missing header file. IMHO better install the newer one (libdb-4.4.20-i486-2.tgz)

not sure if its possible with apache per-se but i would imagine some sort of authentication type server like a radius server could do this, that sort of thing is done in hotels and airport internet kiosks quite often where until a mac address is authenticated it redirects all traffic from that machine to a site for them to enter payment information and then expires the authentication once they amount of time paid for is up,

Hi bathory,

I followed your link you provided, looking through packages, I don't see (libdb-4.4.20-i486-2.tgz). Is the package I need, named something else or am I blind?

Thanks

Hi,

You're not blind
The package name is actually db44-4.4.20-i486-2.tgz. Get it

Hi bathory,

I am running Slackware 12.0, I downloaded (db44-4.4.20-i486-2.tgz) using wget. I tried to untar it, to install it, but it didn't work. Then I tried to use pkgtool to install it, the package shows up and click yes to install it. Waits for 20 sec., seems like it is installing it. But when I go to reconfigure Squid, it error missing header files. Am I missing on how to install this?

Thanks

Re: the configuration, in squid.conf, use:
Code:
external_acl_type session ttl=300 negative_ttl=0 children=1 concurrency=200 %SRC /usr/local/squid/libexec/squid_session -t 600
acl session external session
http_access deny !session
deny_info banner session
To create the banner to the end user, I've used the ERR_ACCESS_DENIED template:
Code:
cp /usr/local/squid/share/errors/templates/ERR_ACCESS_DENIED /usr/local/squid/share/errors/templates/banner
and modified it to my needs. After the agreement text I've just added:
Code:
<p>Click <a href="%U">here</a> to continue</p>
so the user can click on this link and continue to the requested page.

Hi bathory,

I successfully installed Berkeley db package using installpkg. I reconfigured Squid with squid_session, after looking through the directories I don't have /usr/local/squid/share/errors/templates/banner. Did you create the directories /templates/banner.

I have /usr/local/squid/share/errors/English/ERR_ACCESS_DENIED that is where I found the templates. Do I need to create those directories?

Thanks

Hi,

banner is the file with the agreement you want to use for your users.

so the user can click on this link and continue to the requested page.
Using %U, allows squid to redirect the user in his destination page after reading the banner page.

Hi bathory,

I see what you did with this command: cp /usr/local/squid/share/errors/templates/ERR_ACCESS_DENIED /usr/local/squid/share/errors/templates/banner, you copied the ERR_ACCESS_DENIED template and renamed banner, right? My directory location is located in /usr/local/squid/share/errors/English. I copied that Error template and renamed to banner in that directory. I rebooted the my server, opened a webpage on a client machine and seen that the squid error template was displayed. However when I did a reload of the webpage it went to google, and when I closed the browser and reopened it, I was never given that squid error webpage again. I thought the webpage was suppose to come up everytime the browser was reopened.

Thanks

Hi bathory,

I got it to work, I see now how it is working. I want the agreement page to come up everytime the browser is opened though.

Thanks

This is how squid_session works if I can understand well the manpage.

Looking at squid.conf, I think you can try %SRCPORT instead of %SRC to see if it does what you're trying to do. Because everytime you close and reopen your browser, it uses a different source port to connect to squid.

Other things to try if the above does not work:
You can use a smaller timeout (e.g. -t 60), so the session timeouts sooner (every minute). But in this case if the user stays idle for a min. it will be presented with the agreement page, when he tries to use the browser again.
Or you can change %SRC, with %LOGIN, so the session lasts as long as the user stays logged in. Of course you need to authenticate users in squid in this case. Note also that if the user closes its browser without logging out first and then re-opens it, he won't see the agreement page if the session hasn't timeout.

Hi,

I tried using %SRCPORT instead of %SRC, when I open a browser the webpage comes up, but I cannot navigate away from it. I don't want to authenticate users to login. I just want the webpage to come up every 30 minutes, I tried changing the -t 60, but when I was surfing, it seemed to never go back to agreement page. After a certain amount of just leaving the computer, I get the agreement page. Does this mean the computer needs to be idle for 1 minute before squid will show the webpage? I keep looking at the manpage, but just not getting it.

Thanks

From what I can understand from the squid_session manpage, this is what the timeout is. If the user stays idle for the timeout period the session expires and he will be presented with the agreement page. Else if he uses his browser continuously, he won't see the agreement page again, because the session is not expiring.

If you want the page to come up every 30min, I guess you have to reload squid through a cronjob every 30min. Nasty solution but I cannot see another alternative.

Regards
