Hi all, some one here must have had this issues before!

I have a school that is having issues with Apple Mac gear connecting to PFsense box running proxy.

PFsense needs a log in (each student has a log in).

The Mac's and having massive issues with the PFsense box and you can log in after that you will get a long lag time (compared to windows pc's) and may be a error.

Any thing would be of a lot of help.




In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

What version of Mac OS are the client machines running. I haven't used a proxy in about 5 years with a Mac as I am now using A Sonicwall for my content filtering.

Also are the macs point at an internal or external DNS server and what are you putting in the proxy field i.e. a FQDN or a IP address.

How is the proxy presented to the user?  Is it a webpage that pops up where you have to put in your details?  Or are you entering the proxy information (including username/pass) in the Proxies section of the Networking System Preferences pane?

sorry been out of nz for the last week, I'm trying to put a radius server in as well.

I dont know why i feel sorry for them but yes.

The MAC's have the proxy setup under the network settings (name and password + Address of proxy)
