I need to setup up Squid password authentication on a Squid 2.5 box,. It
worked fine for me on 2.4, but not on this release. I have following lines in
# configuration for basic password control
auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth /etc/squid.passwd
auth_param basic children 5
auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server
auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours
# set up an ACL for users who will use password
acl external_users proxy_auth REQUIRED
# allow access to that acl
http_access allow external_users
and like that, the squid doesn't work at all - no client can connect to it. If
I remove the above leaving all other ACLs etc. alone it just works nicely.
Any ideas ?
P.S. Apologies if you got this twice. Second time (if it were) was because of
a mail client crash, with no record of the item being sent .
