    Re: Web Filter

    Dont know if its been mentioned but Endian Firewall is an all in one solution hitting all of your criteria, with a nice web GUI meaning you dont even have to look at a single script or config file if you dont want to.

    The other way, like said, is Ubuntu and then build on top of that exactly what you want, leaving oput what you dont.

    BTW im a linux newbie and i have absolutely no problem with Ubuntu. Everything is just so easy to do. Want an app? type "apt-get install appname" and thats it, it downloads and installs all by itself

    If the particular app you want isnt avalible as a package you will have to mess around with sourcecode, but atleast your 90% there

    Thanks for the input and i may just check that out, and yes it is easy to install software the question is which ones do you install. Ive found that there are associated software/packages/libs that could also be installed that isnt installed with the main software/package, and Ive had difficulties in finding out what they all do.

    Anyway, I was just tweaking and generally playing around with my new web filter and it would seem that my dansguardian access logs arent showing usernames even after setting usernameidmethodntlm = on. Any ideas?

    Is NTLM authentication working in Squid?

    Yes if I went direct to squid (ie port 3128) but when I switch it to dansguardian (ie port 8080) it will only show ip.

    Check the permissions on the winbind privileged pipe. If you've rebooted the PC and not fixed the init scripts winbind will reset them.

    Re: Web Filter

    Ok that was it, so how do i fix the init scripts then?

    Oh and I rechecked dansguardian and it still doesnt show username so i had another look at dansguardian config. I changed the proxyip to the ip of the server (from the loopback) and it now asks for user credentials (annoying). I put it in and it allows be to browse but in the logs it still doesnt show usernames.

    You need to alter the init script for squid. Add a line to alter the group ownership of the winbind pipe just before squid is started.

    I changed the proxyip to the ip of the server (from the loopback) and it now asks for user credentials (annoying). I put it in and it allows be to browse but in the logs it still doesnt show usernames.
    The version of dansguardian you have cannot pick up user credentials in the configuration you have. Either use a sandwich configuration or upgrade to the beta version.

    Re: Web Filter

    Oh right... whats a 'sandwich configuration'? I didnt you the beta cause i wasnt sure how stable it was.. cant really cope with normal errors, let alone funny ones generated by the program itself.

    Sandwich config is the following

    Internet <-> Squid 1 <-> Dansguardian <-> Squid 2 <-> Clients

    Squid 1 - connects to external sites

    Dansguardian - Content filtering.

    Squid 2 - Handles authentication.

    Re: Web Filter

    Ah right get ya now... I've set it up like this:

    Internet <-> Lea Proxy <-> Dansguardian <-> Squid <-> Clients

    Which i believe is effectively the same. Anyway, yes now i can get the right info if i combine the squid and dansguardian logs ie use dansguardian logs to identify access violation and then use the squid logs to see who did it. Im gonna try the Beta version now and see how i get on.
