Squid combo authorisation?

hi all,

am wondering if it's possible to set up squid to

* allow unauthorised access by using the fake_auth parameter, so that members in my ad domain will have their names appearing in the logs


* restrict the odd user or two to one site only

anyone know if this can be done?

yeah you could setup up to authorize via ntlm ad and then they would have to type in the ad user/pass to access the internet
and you could setup squidguard to divert a few ip address to go somewhere else im sure squid could be setup to do it on a user basis.

thanks for your help, zatriz!

problem though is that i'm not sure where the restricted user is going to log in. i think i may have to do that bit via win 2000 group policy.

i didn't want to have to authenticate to make it easier for installations of quicktime, real, and a couple of proprietary applications which only allow use of anon proxy. :-)

been looking at dans guardian too, but it looks like i need two squid boxes to log user names for access on that setup, which i think is a little messy (the first for logging, the second for dans filtering).

anyone know if it's possible to put two proxy servers on one box for convenience? (such as, say, squid for logging users, then to dans for filtering, then to e.g. oops for proxying)
