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
