Squid proxy authentication
I saw this url "http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-unix-squid-proxy-server-authentication.html" which is given step by step to configure basic authentication for internet access. I have to clarify 2 things that if we are created nearly 100 users using
"htpasswd /etc/squid/passwd username"
then should we mention in the squid.conf file as
"auth_param basic children 100"
and otherthing is, if we have mentioned in squid.conf file as
"auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours"
then again will proxy server prompt the user to give his password after 2 hours, even the user has selected to remember the password in the browser? If yes then how to mention in squid.conf file that as apart from first time authentication, it never should ask the password until the user clears the browser history. Please help.
