Squid Server and Client

Hi Guys,

I am trying to build a secure websurfing environment on Sugar OLPC. Is it possible to run squid on it and as well as block access of websites on the same machine? If yes, how should it be done?

Yea, install squid on the machine, then set it up to accept all traffic from localhost IP address, once this is done setup the system preferences to use localhost:3128 (3128 is the default squid port) as a proxy this will route all traffic to the squid proxy on the machine and then you can setup wahtever rules you want in squid to block bad things, or just log internet usage. You can even setup user account in squid with different permissions, so for instance your daughter can view one set of web sites and you can have unrestricted access.
