New to Squid so have questions
« on: July 07, 2016, 10:50:57 pm »
I installed fpsense on a machine to have good control over my internet access.

I have read up a few things on squid.

What I want to do is:

have a very restrictive web access for the standard transparent proxy. I want it restricted to some very specific sites, such as the antivirus update.

As for web browsing want a unrestricted web access through my computer with password protection.

The third, I guess specifically for skype. MS owns it so are weary of what the application contacts.

Is this doable?
I am guessing it is.

I am fairly familiar with pfsense but not squid.
Any pointers appreciated.

Yes, it is possible.

BUT you cannot use transparent proxy and authenticated (password protected) proxy at the same time.
