View Full Version : [ubuntu] Authenticate in Squid using system username and password

January 8th, 2011, 03:51 AM
Perhaps I am missing something here. I am trying to configure Squid to authenticate users using system username and password. But in the relevant documents I find only instructions for creating an external file. How can I use the usernames and passwords in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow to authenticate the proxy users?

Thanks in advance.
