I have installed squid on a mac mini and would like to configure it to be used as a proxy

Any ideas where i would start, especially setting up the ACLs, am using webmin as the GUI tool for configuring squid



nothing better and this !!!for squid GUI

  • up-point for pointing out that Redhat has a GUI admin for Squid. will Redhat work "out of the box" with this admin tool or is it tough to get the admin tool configured? – djangofan Apr 6 '10 at 15:28
