Ummm ... what were you expecting?

Or, what are you trying to achieve by shutting DG down?


Cheers,

Flexibility

Hi ,

Actually i just wanted some flexibility in the sense that im able to switch off DG, leaving squid on. And this will reduce the amount of controls if the I think that the users do not need DG's controls. However, now im not able to do this. Is there anyway where i can achieve this?

Haven't used DG in ~ 5 years, but you should be able to just
have a set of iptables rules that goes directly to squid and
one that goes to squid via DG. Just use those as appropriate.



Cheers,
Tink
