squidGuard and URLBlacklist
« on: March 22, 2008, 05:49:25 am »
Hi There

I originally set up the squidGuard with Shalla's blacklist, and it seemed to work fine, I got some categories shown in the 'default' page (attached below).
Unfortunately it didn't hit the pages I wanted it to hit, so I wanted to use the URLblacklist.com list.
I've entered the download link:
http://HTTP://urlblacklist.com/cgi-bin/commercialdownload.pl?type=download&file=bigblacklist
yesterday.

But I don't see any change in the categoriez list, shouldn't it do that?

Hi DVSerg

Ahh, user error...

Well, I had the impression that it would automagically fetch the blacklist, but I can see that that is a misunderstanding on my part.
I experimented a bit further, and after pressing Upload URL it populated the list perfectly.
Very misleading label IMNSHO.

It has the URLBlacklist now, and geeez, that's effective, only a few danish sites slipped through (but I'll put a plug in that soon enough :-D).

Now, while I'm on the subject of bad labels, what does the Blacklist proxy do?
Is it a way to add to my own blacklist, or how is that to be understood?

Oh, and does the default work as a baseline, and then all the rest is added on top of it (cumulative)?
So that if I choose gaming in default, if I don't select it in an ACL it will still have effect for the users in the ACL?
And again, if I choose gaming in an ACL I will override the default, no matter if it's set to allow or disallow?

Thanks again
Kenneth

You blacklist site have restrictions(limits) for downloading. Yestaday i have messages 'try later...try tomorrow, very mach connections from you ip..'. Now i downloading manually this blacklist and testing him(ploading to pfSense from local ftp server) - all beautiful updated and worked.

'Blacklist proxy - Blacklist upload proxy' Option for uploading proxy only. You can use any external proxy (public or private) for uploading blacklist.

Eachl ACL's have only self rules. Default - also ACL, but for any users, who is not processed other ACLs.
