May I know if anyone here have a DansGuardian success story with puppy? I wanted to put up a dedicated box for web filtering and at the same proxy server. Squid, maybe. Any alternatives, please.

TIA
Jeff

I have attempted both, you require a proxy to use DansGuardian, and squid can't create it's cache so it doesnt work, therefore DansGuardian doesn't work.

I might give it a shot sometime. I know from reading that dansgaurdian can use other proxies besides squid, and one howto suggested using tiniproxy.

Dansgaurdian is an interesting project, but I think the implementation is a bit too complicated for most users to install. It would be simpler to have just done the filtering right through iptables as a firewall I think. At the very least if it were going to use a proxy they might have thought about just supplying one with the filter.

I'd be very keen to install some method of restricting URLs so that my children can only go to a limited set of Web sites. I've implemented it using iptables by restricting on IP address but that's very tortuous to set up.
Is there anything out there taht Puppy can use?

I don't know if it will work in Puppy, but I used to use Privoxy on PCLinuxOS. It was very easy to use and setup. I could never understand how to use Dansguardian. Had it installed once on PCLinuxOS, but Privoxy was much better IMHO. Privoxy can be made to use with another proxy server like SQUID or Tor, but they aren't necessary to run Privoxy. Privoxy's home page is here:

http://www.privoxy.org/

I'm no developer. Just a Linux newbie. If someone could make a .pet of Privoxy it would be great.

I have dansguardian working in puppy. It uses squid as a proxy somehow but I didn't set it up so can't help.

Squid doesnt initialise it's folders, you have to do it yourself. If you can initialize 255 hexcoded folders 255 times inside themselves 255 times, then you win.

There was a Firefox extension called BlockXXX but then they changed the name to ProCon, you could find the extension here: http://procon.mozdev.org/

Anyone have this working with SeaMonkey under Puppy, please?

I am running 2.14 at the moment.

Is there a DotPet or a PETget or is it implemented in Slackware and thus available as soon as Puppy 2.20BETA and 3.00FINAL are released?

I really really need this to protect our children from the
tireless efforts of perverts and predators to invade what should be safe search topics and seemingly safe URL's.

Holy thread revival batman!!!


It has long been my intention to install squid and squidguard on a small linux system.

so far I have found puppy an absolute breeze to set up for everything else...

What's this about squid not being able to intialize folders? surely the squid install shellscript should be capable of dealing with this?? if not, it should be possible to create a shellscript to do it.

I'm still really new to puppy so I haven't got a clue about compiling software and making pets... If someone would be willing to work alongside me or just offer advice etc we could bundle the results up in a nice easy to use pet for all to share Smile

please pm, reply or email i_am_ben_ward at hotmail dot com if you feel like a challenge Very Happy

thanks,
Ben

I done it!

I got squidguard running on a puppy machine Smile

http://www.pcbypaul.com/software/squid.html

this guy made some TGZ files for slackware. using tgz2pet I was able to install it Smile

you don't need the apache install as you can use the hiawatha one. there was a little playing around needed to get squid to start though.

first of all you need to create a user called squid:

Code:
#adduser squid


the system will prompt you for a password, set it to squid

next thing to do is set the hostname

in squid.conf (located in /etc/squid) add the line
Code:
visible_host puppypc

where puppypc is your machine's hostname

then you need to allow the squid user to access the cache directory:

Code:
#cd /var/spool
#chown squid squid

if that don't work you can just
Code:
#cd /var/spool
#chmod 777 squid


then you need to tell squid to create the caching directories
Code:

#cd /usr/sbin
#./squid -z


once you have got the directories set you should be able to start squid.

first off in order to get squid to run at startup you need to move the rc.squid file
Code:
 #mv /etc/rc.d/rc.squid /etc/rc.d/init.d/


you can start squid with the following (or just reboot)
Code:

#cd /etc/rc.d/init.d
#./rc.squid start


this proceedure worked like magic for me Smile squidGuard isn't perfect and the files on pcbypaul.com are really out of date. see the squidguard website for getting a hold of updated lists.

if you go to images.google then you will still be able to search for porn and get thumbnails of it but provided the lists are up to date if you click on the images squidguard should block most of the websites that hold the actual photos/videos etc. There are also lists blocking out violece, warez drugs and more.

Please let me know how you get on![/code]
