I want to setup squid proxy server to be used without manually configuring the browser to use a proxy. For example I should be able to do this in the browser address bar:
htttp://squidserverip:3128/www.serverfault.com. It did not work for me with my basic squid configuration.
What I want is a basic http proxy server with some authentication feature. When the users put the url of the proxy server in the browser address bar (e.g. www.proxyserver.net), on getting authenticated, it will display a list of urls that can be accessed through the proxy. Clicking on those urls will fetch those sites through the proxy.
