Hi all...

I have a linux server acting as gateway and Squid Proxy.

If a client has correctly configured its browser to user proxy at myserverip port 3128 he needs to fill authentication: no problem.

However if he disables proxy in his internet explorer he can surf without authenticatin.

Which is the correct way to force users to authenticate and how can I implement it (Debian)?

Block port 80?

Redirect port 80 traffic to 3128?

How can I achieve this?
