Prepare Squid on network


Hi,

I am new to linux and need your help plz..

I have installed the Debian linux and will install Squid to control and monitor the internet.

My current internet is coming from the ISP to the switch so everyone connected to the switch will be able to get full internet.

My domain control is windows but I want to use squid as proxy for my internet.

so how the setup will look like? is it enough to have two network cards on my squid machine, one will receive the internet and the other one will take the filtered internet to the switch? or what?


Thanks,
Jassim

Yes, two NIC cards should be fine, and your placement is good too...between your internal network and your ISP. There are many how-tos on simple squid configuration you can find on Google, and if you're going for a transparent proxy, that's easily done. It gets more complicated if you want to do AD authentication, of course.

Great if two NIC cards will do the work..

but wait....

what did you say? it gets complicated when trying to authenticate by AD (Windows)? does this means it is possible to authenticate using AD (Windows Server 2008) from the Linux Squid?

Maybe...providing the traffic isn't too large. If you're only going to be using it for 50 folks, fine....but if you're going to do 2,000, you'll need a different solution.

Yes, it is, and there's no need to ask what I said, when you can re-read it easily. Google has lots of examples on this, and you can also use LDAP, or other methods of authentication.

Then let me install it first as basic installation and I am sure I will get back here again for the experts

Thank you

No....and again, you can check Google and the squid website for such things.
