Cache/Proxy / sound the alarm! squid newbie question
« on: March 03, 2018, 09:04:51 am »
Sorry to be such a noob about this but I tried my best to configure squid
and when I tried to set the https settings it just blocked all my internet access
If I made my browser try to go through the sqid proxy I could only get access if
I disabled squid entirely or told my browser not to use the proxy
I dont want to waste anyones time so I just wondered if
someone could point me in the direction of a howto that will explain things simply
how to enable caching for http so that it will cache the sites i visit and
how to make it so sites using https will work too.
could someone also advise - is it unwise to go through a proxy for sites like paypal and ebay?
is there something wrong with the idea of setting up a proxy server that allows me to access such sites and cache their pages?

Feedback / Just wanted to say thanks

I hope this is the right place to express my thanks to those who have created and contribute to pfsense
I have looked at many router/fireawall solutions that could turn an old PC into a great piece of kit
and pfsense ticks all the right boxes, it really does.
I am amazed at all the features and for so long fell for the features offered by other organisations.
When I finally switched to pfsense it all made pfsense - I am just hoping the PF part of the name
is what I think it means Perfect F sense. Hahahahahaha anyway I am very impressed and thank you very much
