    squid proxy

    hey im trying to set up squid for content filtering on my network. what i want to do is to filter all out going traffic so people are not using proxies to by pass my settings other than my self to have unblocked access. i have open dns setup but you can by pass it by changing the dns and every user is an admin on their own pcs so its not possible to lock them down

    iv tried to setup squid but it gives me an error when i run initialize the cache
    this the error
    Initializing the Squid cache with the command squid3 -f /etc/squid3/squid.conf -z ..

    Re: squid proxy

    You know it's not really an error...
    Squid is a caching service and in most cases there is a need for a caching directory.
    In anyway since squid is pretty smart it's better to have a small cache directory just to make the internet surfing faster in some cases.
    squid -z is not in use for you so just start squid.
    If you have other questions about it just ask..
