Hey guys! I got a VPS with some IPS which I'd like to password protect for private use. So I SSH'd into the vps, and did this: sudo apt-get update (PRESS ENTER) sudo apt-get install nano (PRESS ENTER) Installed nano to edit text files through the terminal then installed squid: apt-get install squid Everything went smoothly and after that I followed the steps as shown here: http://www.dodyweb.com/your-own-high-anonymous-private-proxy-with-squid-on-ubuntu/ The problems I now face are: 1. I don't know how to ACL an IP range, I would use an IP range because I have dynamic IP...and Even if I knew how to establish the range I would feel a lot better If I could somehow password protect the proxies, that way I could go into Proxyfirewall and enter the proxies along with the password and do my thing like that. 2. I followed all the steps as shown here: http://www.dodyweb.com/your-own-high-anonymous-private-proxy-with-squid-on-ubuntu/ I also used the IP I currently have assigned (for the ACL settings) but when I tried to enter that proxy into ProxyFirewall to route all the firefox traffic through it, nothing happened, I was still being detected with my regular IP... and then I entered the IP on Firefox's foxyproxy to test one more time but the pages wouldn't load, all I would see is a message saying: "SSL something.. If your browser doesn't redirect you automatically click here" And then the browser would redirect me to the site I was trying to reach but again nothing would load on the browser, all I got was a white page. SO... Anyone knows of a better guide to turn a VPS into a password protected proxy server using squid? or is there any1 out there who could help me set this thing up????
