11.6. Proxy HTTP/FTP

Un proxy FTP/HTTP agisce come intermediario per connessioni HTTP o FTP. Il ruolo è duplice:
La Falcot Corporation ha scelto Squid come server proxy.

11.6.1. Installazione

The squid[2] Debian package only contains the modular (caching) proxy. Turning it into a filtering server requires installing the additional squidguard package. In addition, squid-cgi provides a querying and administration interface for a Squid proxy.
Prima dell'installazione bisogna accertarsi di controllare che il sistema possa identificarsi con il proprio nome completo: hostname -f deve restituire un nome pienamente qualificato (che include il dominio). Se così non è allora il file /etc/hosts dev'essere modificato per contenere il nome completo del sistema (per esempio, arrakis.falcot.com). Il nome ufficiale del computer dev'essere verificato con l'amministratore di rete per evitare potenziali conflitti di nome.

11.6.2. Configurare una cache

Enabling the caching server feature is a simple matter of editing the /etc/squid/squid.conf configuration file and allowing machines from the local network to run queries through the proxy. The following example shows the modifications made by the Falcot Corp administrators:

Esempio 11.22. The /etc/squid/squid.conf file (excerpts)

# INSERT YOUR OWN RULE(S) HERE TO ALLOW ACCESS FROM YOUR CLIENTS
#
include /etc/squid/conf.d/*

# Example rule allowing access from your local networks.
# Adapt localnet in the ACL section to list your (internal) IP networks
# from where browsing should be allowed

acl our_networks src 192.168.1.0/24 192.168.2.0/24
http_access allow our_networks
http_access allow localhost
# And finally deny all other access to this proxy
http_access deny all

11.6.3. Configurare un filtro

squid itself does not perform the filtering; this action is delegated to squidGuard. The former must then be configured to interact with the latter. This involves adding the following directive to the /etc/squid/squid.conf file:
url_rewrite_program /usr/bin/squidGuard -c /etc/squid/squidGuard.conf
The /usr/lib/cgi-bin/squidGuard.cgi CGI program also needs to be installed, using /usr/share/doc/squidguard/examples/squidGuard.cgi.gz as a starting point. Required modifications to this script are the $proxy and $proxymaster variables (the name of the proxy and the administrator's contact email, respectively). The $image and $redirect variables should point to existing images representing the rejection of a query.
The filter is enabled with the service squid reload command. However, since the squidguard package does no filtering by default, it is the administrator's task to define the policy. This can be done by creating the /etc/squid/squidGuard.conf file (using /etc/squidguard/squidGuard.conf.default as template if required).
Il database di produzione dev'essere rigenerato con update-squidguard dopo ogni modifica del file di configurazione di squidGuard (oppure di una delle liste di domini o URL che menziona). La sintassi del file di configurazione è documentata nel sito web:
