    Squid and an "I agree" page

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of a way I can make it so that before anyone can access the internet through our squid proxy, they have to click I agree on a button on the website? I'm sure I've seen similiar things around but I dont know how to do it myself.

    Thanks in advance

    Rob Emery

    Although thinking about it, It doesn't have to be a squid proxy; anything will do! its purely as a passthrough anyway. All our filtering etc is done at county level.

    Yeah just setup a page with a "i agree" button which forwards you to google or whereever.

    Simpley setup the users homepages to goto your "i agree" page.

    Thing is though it's not enforcing it. You might want to consider using a captive portal or network access control system.

    Does a captive portal HAVE to be the router? or can I do it from a HTTP proxy on the wired network?

    Re: Squid and an "I agree" page

    So if i'm reading that correctly it means that users go through the proxy, even though their settings are setup for a direct connection?

    Thats more extreme than I wanted, our proxy information is distributed by WPAD at the moment, all I wanted to be able to do was make it so the proxy would direct all traffic to an I Agree page until that user clicks it, I sware I've seen something similiar at a university somewhere but I cant remember how they set it up.

    Any thoughts on that?

    AFAIK, I've never seen anything like that for squid.
