    DansGuard Help

    I've downloaded and installed DanGuard
    But not sure how to set it up along with Squid

    I've setup the dansguard.conf file with the filterip set to the IP of my Linux box on port 8080

    Do i set the proxyip to connect to squid (same ip on port 81) or to the ISA server at my LEA?

    I'm using SuSE 9.3 and there seems to be 3 services in YaST

    dansguard, squid, and squid_DG

    Which do i need to enable?

    IIRC squid_dg is the init.d script to restart squid and dansguardian simultaneously

    Do i set the proxyip to connect to squid (same ip on port 81) or to the ISA server at my LEA?
    connect it to squid, then tell squid about the upstream proxy

    thanks cybernerd will try it all out tomorrow - might trash squid & dansguard and reinstall them so the .conf files are fresh again.

    Was getting a strange problem with Samba & CUPS on the system too but gonna concentrate on the proxy for now and sort out the file/print server side out another time.

    That's backwards. Dansguardian can't handle client requests directly. This is my setup:

    Client -> Squid (Internal IP:8080) -> Dansguardian (localhost:3128) -> your LEA's proxy (whatever).

    It can work in either configuration, Squid just treats DansGuardian as another browser. I guess that flexibility makes it more colplex :?

    I have stuff for doing NTLM auth and things scattered about my config. It'd likely just confuse you more.
