Readers will learn how the web proxy service can be configured via EdgeRouter's CLI. A web proxy is useful for blocking, allowing or redirecting web traffic. There are a number of options associated with the web proxy service:
[email protected]# set service webproxy ? administrator domain-noncache minimum-object-size append-domain enable-access-log proxy-bypass cache-size listen-address reply-block-mime default-port maximum-object-size reply-body-max-size domain-block mem-cache-size url-filtering
The basic configuration of the webproxy is the address to listen on (typically the LAN IP address of the router).
[email protected]# set service webproxy listen-address 192.168.50.193 
After which, web filtering can be left up to squidguard (options when running squidguard are listed below):
[email protected]# set service webproxy url-filtering squidguard Possible completions: allow-ipaddr-url Allow option to allow IP address URLs default-action Default action enable-safe-search Enable safe-mode search on popular search engines local-block Local site to block local-block-keyword Local keyword to block local-block-url Local URL to block local-ok Local site to allow local-ok-url Local URL to allow log Log block category redirect-url Redirect URL for filtered websites rule URL filter rule for a source-group source-group Source group name time-period Time period name
