squid and squidguard


I was using squidguard but someone told me that you can use squid to create a blacklist and filter your client websitess. If that is possible how would you do so?

You can use the Squid ACL's to point through to text files that hold lists of sites you want blocking, though it's basically doing the same as SquidGuard. The Squid ACL FAQ explains it all in detail - http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-10.html

Whether it saves a great on processing I don't know as it's still having to lookup data within a text file (though this will then be stored in memory depending on it's size). Depending on the number of sites you're wanting to explicitly block, it might be easier leaving SquidGuard handling it, or look at implementing DansGuardian.

I have setup dansguardian but I am stuck on the dansguardian.conf file. My squid is listening on 3128 and I have set it up for tranparenting proxying. I am not sure on how to setup my dansguardian.conf file (filterip,filterport,proxyport,proxip). I also want to use the squidguard blacklist setup. I have uncommented out the bannedurlist file and I have those paths pointing to my blacklist directories(/path/to/blacklist). I have all of my browsers pointing to (ip.to.my.proxy) port 3128. I have setup my iptables rules to redirect and so forth. Can somebody please help in this setup.

Here is my network.
