how to attach acl created in squid using webmin to delay pool?


hello all,

i want to deploy squid to manage bandwidth usage in an educational organization. for that purpose i am using webmin for front end management.
i have created acls and delay pools according to the need but i am still not able to attach them together.
i still have doubts as to how to attach an acl to the specific delay pool.
if anyone has had this issue or has deployed the similar kind of infrastructure, please help.

thanks in advance

You should read this howto. Mind that the squid package that comes with most distros does not support delay pools and you have to compile it from source.

well thanks for the suggestion.
but i had my squid installed with delay pools enabled.
still i tried the manual install method given in that tutorial and followed as given.
still the problem persists. i can create delay pools and access control lists both.
but can not attach them together according to the need.
i have delay pools and acls created separately but then the configuration is useless until they are attached.
am not able to manage the usage of bandwidth this way. have couple of days in my hand before it gets too critical.

I think you should read better the documentation to see how to associate acls with specific pools from command line. I don't use webmin, so I don't know if it lets you do what you want.
Take a look also at these examples that might be helpful.

thanks again for your prompt help.
i actually need some graphical tool to do the needful so that in my absence it can be managed.
the deployment site is not my employer and hence i might not be there all the time. this is just a project undertaken.
if there is some another graphical tool that can help can also do. i am not sticking to webmin if its not going to work. though people have done this using webmin and i guess this is possible through it but how i dont have any idea.
though managing delay pools from terminal is possible but for those who have knowledge of linux and squid.
if there is no other option then i will manage it through terminal. also if there is any other option for bandwidth management i am open for that too.

thanks

Searching freshmeat I found this webmin module for squidguard. Perhaps you could install squidguard and give it a try.

squid guard also could not help much.
this could be due to the fact that it also uses the same for the backbone and does nothing different. but i may be wrong but then there are even fewer options to configure squid guard than suid proxy server in webmin and squid seems more flexible in webmin than squid guard
am i right?? i have not found solution to this even on webmin documentation page.
is there any other method to manage usage of bandwidth using linux with some graphical tool?

If you insist in gui frontends for squid, you might take a look at GAdminSquid.
From the site "Featuring: Most options found in squid and advanced ACL-building. Delay pools and logformats are discarded for now but are planned."
Hope that it suits your needs
