I have Squid Proxy installed on a windows machine. I want the users to authenticate themeselves when ever they access the net, i.e: An html page is displayed prompting for a username and password before continuing. From my research I have found plenty help setting it up on a Linux machine, but nothing on a windows machine.
My config looks like such:
auth_param basic program c:/squid/libexec/ncsa_auth c:/squid/etc/passwd auth_param basic children 5 auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours auth_param basic casesensitive off acl ncsa_users proxy_auth REQUIRED http_access allow ncsa_users
This doesnt do anything. All users still get access to the net without a prompt. I checked the folders I'm pointing to for my basic auth program(c:/squid/libexec/ncsa_auth and c:/squid/etc/passwd) and they are both empty. I'm guessing something is supposed to be in there but I dont know what. Could someone please shed some light on the matter?
