Original Post:


Im trying to use SquidNT (No, I dont have a choice to switch to something else) to prevent access to some domains/sites.
Now Ive added the following into the squid.conf

acl blocked_url url_regex "c:/Squid/etc/squid-block.acl"

The way Ive read things, the above should read in anything inside the acl file and prevent access. But its not working. (yes restarted the service)
What have I missed or doing wrong ? :)



Hi, this is the only forum I've ever been to that locks a post after 30days if there has been no reply. Anyway, firstly you have only completed half of what's required. Firstly make sure your squid-block.acl is a plain txt file containing the relevant words/sites you want blocked.

The line acl blocked_url url_regex "c:/Squid/etc/squid-block.acl" only defines the acl, you have not yet specified how you want squid to treat it. For that you'll need to add the line: http_access deny blocked_url

MrAlan: Hi, this is the only forum I've ever been to that locks a post after 30days if there has been no reply.

Yes, but we implemented that because many times we saw some people that don't understand the concept of "solution was posted case closed" write a reply with words like "My problem is not like this, but can you help me with [insert name of completely unrelated product/service/software]" to an old discussion.

People complained, and we listened.
