I have a server with 10 ip's that I want to give access to some friends via authentication but I'm stuck on squid's config file.

Let's say I have these ip's available on my server:


And I want to allocate each one of them to a different user like so:

  • goes to user manilodisan using password 123456
  • goes to user manilodisan1 using password 123456
  • goes to user manilodisan2 using password 123456

I managed to add the passwords and authentication works ok but how do I do to restrict one user to one of the available ip's?

I have a basic setup from different bits I found over the internet but nothing seems to work. Here's my squid.conf (all comments are removed to make it lighter):

acl ip1 myip
acl ip2 myip
tcp_outgoing_address ip1
tcp_outgoing_address ip2

Try adding the following

acl manilodisan proxy_auth manilodisan
acl manilodisan1 proxy_auth manilodisan1
http_access allow ip1 manilodisan
http_access allow ip2 manilodisan1
