Squid will block domains, maybe the syntax you are using is wrong


Q. How do I block any website accessing the Internet using squid proxy server?

A. You can simply use squid ACL to block access to any web site. There are 3 steps:

#1. Create a text file with blocked domain name list such as baddomain1.com, mail.yahoo.com, gmail.com and so on

#2. Define Acl

#3. Restart squid

First, create a file called /etc/squid/blocked.domains.acl
# vi /etc/squid/blocked.domains.acl

Append domain names,
gmail.com
baddomain.com
sex.com
mail.yahoo.com

Save and close the file. Open squid.conf file:
# vi /etc/squid/squid.conf

Create acl called blockeddomain:
acl blockeddomain dstdomain "/etc/squid/blocked.domains.acl"

Deny http access, enter:
http_access deny blockeddomain

Close and save the file. Restart squid proxy server:
# /etc/init.d/squid restart

iptables doesn't know about domains, on ip addresses.

You might try something like OpenDNS (www.opendns.com) to block "social networking" sites.

MySQL 5.7 has a lot of new features. If you've dabbled with an older version of MySQL, it is definitely worth learning.

Use squid acl to block instead of IPTABLE
create a text file using any editor named block.txt in /etc/squid/


####Create acl called block:
acl block url_regx -i "/etc/squid/block.txt"

#Do the following in appropriate place
http_access deny block

#Reconfigure squid proxy server:
squid -k reconfigure

Hello daniluv,

Try this to block facebook using iptables for both 443(SSL) and 80 port:

sudo /sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -m tcp -p tcp -m iprange --dst-range 66.220.144.0-66.220.159.255 --dport 443 -j REJECT
sudo /sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -m tcp -p tcp -m iprange --dst-range 69.63.176.0-69.63.191.255 --dport 443 -j REJECT
sudo /sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -m tcp -p tcp -m iprange --dst-range 204.15.20.0-204.15.23.255 --dport 443 -j REJECT
sudo /sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -m tcp -p tcp -m iprange --dst-range 66.220.144.0-66.220.159.255 --dport 80 -j REJECT
sudo /sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -m tcp -p tcp -m iprange --dst-range 69.63.176.0-69.63.191.255 --dport 80 -j REJECT
sudo /sbin/iptables -I FORWARD -m tcp -p tcp -m iprange --dst-range 204.15.20.0-204.15.23.255 --dport 80 -j REJECT

because squid does not judge the https traffic
