Basic Squid setup help


Hiya,

I'm running a fedora core 3 box on my DMZ. I have an option on my firewall (Watchguard Firebox II) to pass my http traffic through a cache server.

All i have to do is add the cache server's IP and port to my Firewall and any traffic from my clients that hits the Firewalls gateway with a destination of port 80 gets directed through the cache. Are you all with me so far?!

So i've been looking at my squid.conf file and i'm like whoe!!! this is way over my head. All I want is for squid to listen on port 3128 or something and cache websites and then proxy through itself. I dont want anything fancy, no authentication etc. I've been looking through the file and I do not want it to query other caches either......just use itself.

I've applied all the common defaults like, port number, size of cache, how long to keep the objects cached for and who is allowed to access the minty highway (web!) but i havent applied anything yet nor started squid.

does anyone here reading this have a basic squid 2 conf file that does what i want?

thank you!!!

Re: Basic Squid setup help

Hi there,

what u want is simple enough for starting a squid. As u r want a basic default squid .conf file for making ur setup complete, u can easily start squid by just checking out a HOWTO for squid in tldp.org or u can get me off list as i can mail u my squid.conf file which is very basic file . what it does is listen at port 3128 and give access to all which are allowed in ACL's.

Hope this helps u !
