Transparent Proxy and HTTPS
I've been searching the forums and have seen various threads relating to this topic but have yet to come across any real solutions.
We've setup a guest wireless network to allow students to bring in laptops/tablets etc from home and access the Internet. To avoid having to configure any settings on the student devices, we've configured a transparent Squid proxy which passes all HTTP traffic from the guest wireless network through to the school network and out to the Internet. The problems occur when a student tries to access an HTTPS page on the guest wireless network, and they getting a response of unable to establish a secure connection.
If the proxy details for the Squid server are manually entered, the HTTPS session works and secure connections are allowed, so it's obviously just the transparent aspect that's causing the issue.
I've read a few articles saying the Squid can be compiled with the --enable-SSL feature to allow transparent HTTPS connections but I'm not really sure what I'm doing regarding this.
There's also been mention of SmoothWall and Dansguardian, but again, I'm not familar with these and whether they could provide a better solution or not?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
