Squid Dansguardian allow user to bypass with password
I have Squid and Dans set up on a passthrough box with 2 nics, filtering port 80 requests. Everything is working great. I need to know if there is a way to set up Dansguardian so that a user can enter a password on a blocked page to access it. Thanks

Install DansGUI
You can install DansGUI that I am working on at sourceforge.

It is designed to work on Ubuntu 10.10 but may work on provides a page that will ask for a password when a blocked site is accessed.

Thank you Nixit, I will check that out, looks to be what I am in search of. Thanks again.

No problem,

Let me know of things that you would like or if you have problems with it. It is a slow development but it will get there. I am preparing to release the version that has a GUI to change your password, by default your password is default and can be changed in the /var/www/password.php file. The next version will allow a GUI to add or remove sites from the the exception lists...right now the overide is permanent and must be manually removed.

I tried to install dansgui and I can not get the pwd function to work. The how-to talks about editing a file to add some parameters but doesn't tell what file to edit. Thanks for any help

Sorry for the late responce here. I bareley got back to working on this project and I'm having problems getting the password to work. However, the file that needs to be edited can be accessed by just typing "visudo" in the terminal.
