Question SQUID - Blocking port 80

Dear All,

I have been doing a fair bit of searching on google for a way to configure squid to stop serving port 80 requests.

I assume its a line that gets added to the squid configuration file, but I am unsure where to start. I've looked at the file with Joe, but still no luck.

Can anyone assist?

Thankyou very much,

Look in the acl section of the squid.conf file
it typically looks like this

acl Safe_ports port 80       # http
acl Safe_ports port 21          # ftp
acl Safe_ports port 443 563     # https, snews
acl Safe_ports port 70          # gopher
acl Safe_ports port 210         # wais
acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535  # unregistered ports
acl Safe_ports port 280         # http-mgmt
acl Safe_ports port 488         # gss-http
acl Safe_ports port 591         # filemaker
acl Safe_ports port 777         # multiling http
This is a list of allowed ports, simply remove the line with port 80 from this list and run 'squid -k reconfigure'
