I need to configure 3proxy server to allow IP based authentication, and / or username / password authentication.

When I use the IP based authentication it works fine.

With username / password authentication it does work, but 3proxy is asking for the username / password on every page load.

This is a snippet from my 3proxy server config file:

auth strong
users jsmcm:CL:mypassword

allow jsmcm
proxy -p802 -a -i1.2.3.4 -e1.2.3.4

Is there anything that I need to do to make it ask for the password only once per session? I tried adding the cache auth type but either I did that incorrectly, or it doesn't do what I thought it would do!

  • This question is about a proxy server.. Seems quite on topic for SERVERfault.com. Its not about end user computing nor about development. I did make the mortal sin of mentioning the development of a module in my initial post, but anyone who ACTUALLY read the question would understand that its about a proxy SERVER config... – John Mc Murray Mar 19 '17 at 15:28
