Incomplete information in IPFire Wiki about Squid Web Proxy

I’m talking about this link: - Squid Web-Proxy

In the “Common Settings” section of the page, nowhere does it explain how exactly one goes about setting the proxy in the client’s machine. In the webUI of the web proxy, it shows port number but not the IP address of the Squid Web Proxy, so how can anyone configure the network settings or browser settings to use the web proxy?

Depending on how many interfaces they have, would they have to use the blue interfaces IP, red interfaces IP or firewall’s IP?

You have IPFire Wiki in this state and you expect people to consult it and behave as if all of the users problems with IPFire will be solved by using Wiki.

Well, I set up the proxy for the green network by reading the man pages in ipfire. I can assure you it works.
On the clients you can configure the proxy on your OS, or in the browser (use proxy) or via a script (proxy.pan, firefox). The Script alternative I use for laptops which use the blue network (without proxy) or the green one (with Proxy). The use of proxy.pan is described in the manual.
There is nothing incomplete. I confess sometimes one need e little search to find the appropriate information :slight_smile:

Do you mean proxy.pac?

Sorry for the noise…

If I don’t want to use the script file, what IP must I type in the proxy configuration? Where in the Wiki says which IP to use. Not mentioning this information makes it incomplete.

Thank you for the “noise”.
pac - proxy auto-config - I was intended to write in deed.

I use port 800 in the proxy config and as well as in the manual proxy configuration in Firefox and in the proxy configuration in Opensuse Linux.
Port 800 an non transparent mode.
For the outgoing firewall rules I defined a service group “web-proxy” where http, https and ftp ports are in.
Source: Firewall (red) to destination standard network (red) protocol: service group “web-proxy”.
No foreward rule for http, etc.
