Squid Related General Software

This page lists third-party software which is related to or can be integrated with Squid proxy.

For software tools which are packaged by the Squid Project see the helper manuals.

3Dhierarchy.pl   A perl script by Kenichi Matsui that generates a 3D hierarchy map in VRML from squid.conf files.
echoping   A nifty Unix utility that ``pings'' your proxy cache with a test HTTP request. Can be used from cron to warn you if your cache goes down.
Malware Block List   The Malware Block List is a free, automated and user contributed system for checking URLs for the presence of Viruses, Trojans, Worms, or any other software considered Malware. The list of URLs that point to Malware is available and formatted for using on Squid to block users from acessing and downloading these malicious softwares.
proxymin   An easy to use graphical interface to configure commonly needed Squid ACLs. It allows for fine grained permission management based on users, hosts and groups. Protocols HTTP, HTTPS and FTP are currently supported. proxymin has been tested with several hundreds of managed accounts. All major features have been implemented and tested.
REDbot   RED is a robot that checks HTTP resources to see how they'll behave, pointing out common problems and suggesting improvements. Although it is not a HTTP conformance tester, it can find a number of HTTP-related issues.
sqcwa   This program reads squid/access.log on the fly, analyses it and searches inside all text/html objects for some tags, and if found, tells squidclient to purge the page.
squish   Squish maintains a per-user record of proxy traffic and time on-line. (ab)Users exceeding configured quotas are squished (added to a blacklist acl). (Licence GPL)
Unanimated GIFs   Tim Newsome's page has a patch for Squid-2.3 that removes animation codes from GIF images.
Webmin   Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any browser that supports tables and forms (and Java for the File Manager module), you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and so on. Webmin has a module for configuring Squid.
wget   A command-line Web client that supports both HTTP and FTP. Wget can generate proxy-HTTP requests and is useful for mirroring Web sites.
Relais 500 Cant connect to www-sor.inria.fr:80 (connect:
The Relais protocol allows a group of caches distributed world-wide to cooperate in order to improve Web performances. Relais guarantees to its clients a monotonic and rapid progress on the documents' versions. Once a cache learns that some document is stale, Relais takes care of the refreshment of all partners caching this document. For performance reasons, actions required to enforce consistency are performed in background. Relais has been prototyped on top of Squid.
1FD-SQUID 404 Not Found
Y. Nishimura has developed a version of Squid and FreeBSD that fits on a single floppy disk. There are a number of other cool 1FD applications available as well.
BlueCoat WebFilter 404 Not Found
BlueCoat WebFilter (formerly known as Cerberian Content Filter) is a very flexible URL rating system with full Squid integration provided by MARA Systems. The service requires a license (priced by the number of seats), but evaluation licenses are available for free.
WebScan for Linux 404 Not Found
WebScan for Linux brings the awesome Anti Virus and Content Security features of MicroWorld products to protect the internal clients/networks served by Linux based Proxy Servers and stop the threat at the gateway level.
Kraken Config for Squid 403 Forbidden
Kraken Config for Squid is a configuration and monitoring suite for Squid for Windows. Features Include: Wizard based installation, useful for configuring access controls, network parameters, Proxy Auto-Configuration, service montitoring, policy and performance alerts, free access to our database of pornagraphic websites, logfile rotation, automatic updates of new releases.
Accountd 1
A daemon that tracks IP traffic through a system, correlating it with dial-in sessions by users. The end result is a database of users with records for each of the number of dial-in sessions, total time connected and data downloaded. Configuration text files are used to specify users and map serial lines to IP addresses, and the records can be viewed with a web browser.
purge 0
The purge tool is a kind of magnifying glass into your squid-2 cache. You can use purge to have a look at what URLs are stored in which file within your cache. The purge tool can also be used to release objects which URLs match user specified regular expressions. A more troublesome feature is the ability to remove files squid does not seem to know about any longer.
NOTE: purge has been updated and integrated with squid-3.2
The Web-based Proxy Manager is an easy-to-use interface for managing Squid and access to the Internet. It allows you to define different users, with different access levels. You can easily define network segments, allow or deny their Internet activity with a single mouse click, allow or deny single computers' exit to the Internet, and easily remove all the restrictions.
