I am looking to set up squid proxy for my lan, and think I have a correct config to make sure the proxy is not open. I am asking the list as opposed to the squid lists, as I prefer to ask the FBSD list first when it is somewhat FBSD related. I will be running this on a FBSD 4.9 box. This box has two NICs in it, one connected to the router and one to the lan.
After looking through the docs, I think I am correct in listing the internal network 10.1.1.x 255.0.0.0 as such: acl internal src 10.1.1.0/24 http_access deny !internal I placed the above at the start of the file to jump right in and get this set. And further into the squid.conf file the following: #Recommended minimum configuration: acl all src 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 acl manager proto cache_object acl localhost src 10.1.1.5/255.0.0.0 acl SSL_ports port 443 563 acl Safe_ports port 80 # http acl Safe_ports port 21 # ftp acl Safe_ports port 443 563 # https, snews acl Safe_ports port 70 # gopher acl Safe_ports port 210 # wais acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535 # unregistered ports acl Safe_ports port 280 # http-mgmt acl Safe_ports port 488 # gss-http acl Safe_ports port 591 # filemaker acl Safe_ports port 777 # multiling http acl CONNECT method CONNECT Here the squid server will be IP 10.1.1.5 255.0.0.0. I have no references to localhost as 127.0.0.1r, and no references to the external IP in this file anywhere. I am assuming, perhaps incorrectly which is often the case for me :-), that this should be sufficient and safe from being open to the world. Thank you very much for your time and patience with this. And yes I did RTFM, but I want to be sure as sometimes the FM is beyond me. -- Bob "Play is the work of children. It's very serious stuff.
