I'm attempting to setup a public squid3 server but I'm running into roadblocks at every turn.
This server I've installed squid on has a public IP address and I'd like to use it as a proxy server wherever I am. I'm attempting to just get the basic open proxy server open and then from there lock it down, but I can't even get that far.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 and I've installed squid3 via apt-get.
Here is my config file below without the comments (yes I was over zealous with the allows):
acl allIP src all acl alldstIP dst all acl manager proto cache_object acl localhost src 127.0.0.1/32 ::1 acl to_localhost dst 127.0.0.0/8 0.0.0.0/32 ::1 acl SSL_ports port 443 acl Safe_ports port 80 # http acl Safe_ports port 21 # ftp acl Safe_ports port 443 # https acl Safe_ports port 70 # gopher acl Safe_ports port 210 # wais acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535 # unregistered ports acl Safe_ports port 280 # http-mgmt acl Safe_ports port 488 # gss-http acl Safe_ports port 591 # filemaker acl Safe_ports port 777 # multiling http acl CONNECT method CONNECT http_access allow all http_access allow allIP http_access allow alldstIP http_access allow localhost http_access allow to_localhost http_port 3128 hierarchy_stoplist cgi-bin ? cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid3 100 16 256 coredump_dir /var/spool/squid3 refresh_pattern ^ftp: 1440 20% 10080 refresh_pattern ^gopher: 1440 0% 1440 refresh_pattern -i (/cgi-bin/|\?) 0 0% 0 refresh_pattern . 0 20% 4320 cache_effective_user MYUSER cache_effective_group root
top tells me squid3 is running, but I can't telnet to my server on the proxy port (another question said that was a good debugging step)
