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.

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.
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.
WebScan for Linux   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.
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.
3Dhierarchy.pl 500 Internal Server Error
A perl script by Kenichi Matsui that generates a 3D hierarchy map in VRML from squid.conf files.
squish 403 Forbidden
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)
squidpurge 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
