Setting up Squid 2.5 for Internet Cafe
I am opening up a internet cafe and I am setting up a Squid Server (v2.5) for about 50 Computers. I am only using a aDSL connection @ 1024k, and I am trying to find ways to cheat on bandwidth.

Other than Squid what tools would be needed so that Squid works great and I can monitor it easily.

If possibile I would love to have some sort of Intrusion system that can also handle wifi (future expansion)

Lastly what would be the lightest OS I can run this on? BSD?

Any tutorials anyOne Can Recommend or helpful tips?

My Server:
2.8 Intel Xeon
50 GB 10k RPM Hard Drives (3)
Dual 10/100/1000 Nic Cards

Thank in Advance

Download the latest rpm of Squid and install. make the swap directories. add "hosts allow" in squid.conf. restart squid and your all set. Dont forget to edit ipforward to 1.

A stripped-down Kernel would be the lightest OS. Check DSL (DAMN-SMALL-LINUX). FYI, I was able to share a SDSL line good for 5 users to 75 Workstations using a P4 1.7 GHz with 40 Gig HDD. Fedora core and Squid and it worked.

I recommend that you visit for the complete info in squid.:D
