I have a box with 3.0 cpu 2Gb ram dedicated for ubuntu server and filtering about 6 users only in my home network. I tried both squid and tinyproxy with dansguardian but I am facing slowness problems. Is it possible to use dansguardian without an http proxy !
How can we troubleshoot this issue ?
Not sure if the problem is due to firehol. I have removed firehol from dansguadian GUI, may be you could try below:


Launch dansguardian GUI and choose autoconfigure.

After you should edit:


to suit your need (to share to LAN, make sure you redirect port 80 from the LAN to port 8080).

I hope without firehol it woul be faster.
