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?

Did you enable Trasnparent proxy and SSL Filtering?
