I recently purchased a VPS and am wanting to use it as a VPN server. However, it has bandwidth limitations. So, I figured since I already have a local Squid proxy caching things for me, I could have users connect to the proxy and the proxy connect to the VPN.
I've configured squid with squid with squidguard and when using proxy in browser it works fine.
But I want to enforce using proxy (probably in iptables) in all browsers. Now it can be disabled in the browser settings by user.
My setup is: one standalone pc with ubuntu running the squid and squidguard and on this very same device I want to somehow enforce using the proxy.
I'm mon webmaster/developer and I'm new in Linux. Our office suddenly needs to setup a proxy server. Ubuntu Squid proxy server immediately came as an option for us. The question is: does transparent squid proxy configuration using Ubuntu will have no problem with computers running on Windows OS?
Thanks in advance.. Sorry if this is a very noob question.
I have configured squid for anonymous search and cache proxy. Initially it was working well, after two weeks it becomes slow(loading web page become slow) then again I had to looked into squid. I saw there was updated standard version of squid then I did update squid from 3.1.19 to 3.2.4. Now squid is running all the traffic from our network going through squid proxy server only.
I want to hide our internal LAN IP's(static IPs) behind squid proxy. I have done configuration, now all the traffic are going through squid proxy only. What I assume that after I configure squid no one from outside of our LAN could not able to remote desktop to any local LAN systems, but it is not working as I thought of.
