SQUID Software

Currently, I've installed and configure SQUID software (blocking access) in one PC. Ive changed the /etc/squid.conf file. How could I test the whether squid is working or not ? Please explain in details.
THanks.

Re: SQUID Software

Has man pages of squid been installed? Do man squid to find more details or type squid -help at command prompt. Hope that helps.

Re: SQUID Software

Hi,

Try to telnet to squid port (3128 if you didn't change it), and type :
GET http://whatever.you.have/access/to/without/squid/

You should get the HTML source of the desired page.

Regards,

Re: SQUID Software


You can test with :
telnet squid_machine_host_name 3128
(3128 is the default listenning port for SQUID)

If you can connect type an http command like
GET http://www.linux.org
If your squid configuration is good you will
see the HTML source code.

If the first test works well, another way to
test is to configure a browser to use your
proxy (see Netscape or IE documentation.)
With your browser test ftp and http access. You
can also try to connect an unknown host :
squid have to reply with an error message.
