I set up iptables and squid successfully, now I try to get the proxy authentication running. My squi.conf look the following way:
auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth /etc/squid/proxy_users auth_param basic children 5 auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours acl all src all acl manager proto cache_object acl localhost src 127.0.0.1/32 acl to_localhost dst 127.0.0.0/8 0.0.0.0/32 acl localnet src 10.0.0.0/8 # RFC1918 possible internal network acl localnet src 172.16.0.0/12 # RFC1918 possible internal network acl localnet src 192.168.7.0/24 acl passwd proxy_auth REQUIRED http_access allow localnet passwd http_access allow localhost http_access deny all
So. Its according to the book. It works in so far as that when i start the browser, it hands me on request an "Access denied" page. But I get not chance to authenticate myself! I heard it could be that firefox automatically hands over an anynomous user, which, of course gets denied.
How can I force the browser to pop up an authentication box?
