MCP200 used Ask the Experts™
Hi There,

I need assistance with Dansguardian /Squid.
I'm running  Dansugrdian module on squid , ever since deplying squid i cannot seem to do windows update via proxy , Mcafee antivirus updates. It works fine when not going through proxy

Also I get promoted for my windows password when doing updates for java , Also i get promopted for my windows authentication when accessing word documents.

I have tried adding the exceptions  through exceptions  list and no success. Any luck please?

Squid is setup on  Ubuntu Server

Do you require a login for the proxy server or does it work without login?


I use windows authentication so i can monitor user activity
I have tried adding exceptions in ie doesn't seem to help?
If you haven't already; have a look at the exceptionfilesitelist list. This list allows clients to download from the sites listed. Add the following to the list and restart Dan's Guardian.

Hope this helps!
check the following in your dansguardian.conf
# OPTION: virusscanexceptions
# If off, antivirus scanner will ignore exception sites and urls.
virusscanexceptions = on

Hi madunix.

Windows update still prompting for proxy authentication.
I have setup the exceptions in proxy settings and still same issue.
