Question Squid - missing squid_ldap_conf on OEL distro

Hi all,

I'm fairly new to Linux and very new to Squid and am having authentication issues!

I am using Oracle Enterprise Linux (which is basically Red Hat without the branding) and wanting to use Squid Proxy Server for web access with authentication to Active Directory.

I've found a number of articles about this online and all of them say to use auth program squid_ldap_conf which should be in /usr/lib/squid/

I don't have a squid directory in /usr/lib for starters and my squid binaries are in /etc/squid but there is no squid_ldap_conf in there either.

I have installed the latest version of Squid (3.0) to see if that helped but I still cannot find the authorisation program.

Please can anybody help or advise?

Are you using 32bit or 64bit ? ... squid_ldap_auth is included in the squid-2.6.STABLE21-3.el5.x86_64.rpm on RHEL5.3 - located under /usr/lib64/squid

Thanks - I think I've been a bit silly in not spotting the /usr/lib64 directory! I've found it and it contains the squid files that I've been looking for.

Now I just need to figure out how to get the AD authentication bit working....

Thanks again

Getting it to work is not that hard. Here's an example from the Squid Wiki:

Kind regards,
