Squish: Users over their quota are not denied

Posted on 2009-07-06

I am trying to use Squish with Squid and NCSA authentication. Squish is not denying users that are over quota. I think it might me the order of the ACLs in my squid.conf file.

Thank you for your help!
#Recommended minimum configuration:


# Only allow cachemgr access from localhost

http_access allow manager localhost

http_access deny manager

# Deny requests to unknown ports

http_access deny !Safe_ports

# Deny CONNECT to other than SSL ports

http_access allow CONNECT !SSL_ports


# We strongly recommend the following be uncommented to protect innocent

# web applications running on the proxy server who think the only

# one who can access services on "localhost" is a local user

#http_access deny to_localhost




acl ncsa_users proxy_auth REQUIRED

http_access allow ncsa_users

### added by squish (begin)

# acl's for squish - autodetected, sometimes


acl SQUISHED1 proxy_auth -i "/etc/squid/squished"

acl password proxy_auth REQUIRED

acl SQUISHED2 ident    "/etc/squid/squished"

acl SQUISHED3 src        "/etc/squid/squished"

# Error info that says you're squished

deny_info SQUISHED1

deny_info SQUISHED2

deny_info SQUISHED3

# HTTP access controls for squish

http_access allow SQUISHLOC

http_access allow password !SQUISHED1

http_access deny SQUISHED1

http_access deny SQUISHED2

http_access deny SQUISHED3

### added by squish (end)

# Example rule allowing access from your local networks. Adapt   

# to list your (internal) IP networks from where browsing should

# be allowed

# And finally deny all other access to this proxy

http_access allow localhost

http_access deny all

I figure it out. I need to remove or comment out line 20:

http_access allow ncsa_users


#http_access allow ncsa_users
