Squid on Windows, Dansguardian on Linux will this work?
For the last few days I have been trying to setup Squid authentication on Ubuntu but i cant get my around all the Kerberos/Samba setup. I had Squid on Windows working fine, but wanted to use Dansguardian as well, so thats when i moved to Ubuntu.
What I am now wondering is can i have Squid installed on Windows and Dansguardian installed on Linux and them working together ok, as I am about to throw my toys out of the pram with this?
Edit -- I have realised that this isn't going to work as I will have to have Samba/Kerberos setup for Dansguardian. So does anyone have or know of a good step by step guide to get this to work?

I don't see any reason you can't have both DG and Squid on separate boxes; just change the config to point to the correct address and port in the DG config. I do have Squid working with Kerberos in a 2008R2 AD running on Debian though. It's a bit convoluted, but with this guide you should be able to do it.

We have this. Squid on a windows VM, Dansgardian on the pfsense box. We originally had squid there was well, but authentication was funny at times.
I didn't do the setup, so can't help there, but it is possible

Thanks guys. I have started again as I was getting into a right mess. I have found this guide that I am currently working through DansGuardian and NTLM from Active Directory | Pete's PC blog if this doesn't work ill probably go the way MordyT suggested.
What is PFSense like I have never used it?

I could not get Squid authentication on Ubuntu working, it seems very flakey. So I have reinstalled squid on Windows 7 with sarg and it is working brilliantly, already caught a student on something he shouldn't. I want to setup a Dansguardian box on Ubuntu now, how would I go about linking the 2 together and can I get Dansguardian to use squid authentication so that I can apply different filters to different group?
Any advice would be appreciated.
