Allowing Certain Ports to Pass Through Squid

I have set up a squid proxy server. It seems to be working OK except for when people try to go to a site through a certain port (ex: www.greencastle.com:8383). I assume this is because they are not going through to the squid server on 3128? How can I tell squid to allow certain ports through?

HI there

Add an ACL , open the squid configuration file

#vim /etc/squid/squid.conf

look for acl safeports in the file, you will find a group of ports , just add a new similar line with the port you want, 8383 is for Windows IMAIL

Best Regards

A very good tool to use to manage your server is Webmin. This gives up a GUI interface for apps like squid and other Linux apps.

I'll check into that webmin tool. I did add port 8383 in to the Safe_ports acl but it still gives me an error. Is it because the computer is trying to go to a site without going through proxy port? I worked around this for now by defining a group policy on my server that puts an exception in for websites with ports like that.

Is it an internal site, I mean within your LAN , if so from your Browser settings check the box that says bypass for or NO proxy for and put the IP address of the server

Can you post the error please

It isn't, it's external. But if the browser settings are the best way to go (that is what I am doing now) then that is fine.
