Full Version: Gatway server for school
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I am trying to set up a Gateway server but failing

Here is my senario

we get our internet access via a local education authority here in the UK , at our end we have a cisco 2600 which plugs into a switch and allows all machine on the network to access the internet by using the proxy address, this access is filtered but it is all controlled of site and we have no access to proxy logs etc.

What I am trying to do (and I have done it at home with a cable connection) is have a gateway machine that sits on my side of the cisco 2600 and all my PCs go to a proxy on my network first then continue through to the internet I know that squid can be a quite powerful tool.

I have followed a squid setup in the guides section on this site but still I can't internet connection even from the linux server.

Here is what i have done

cache_peer 8080 3130  (8080 being the port windows clients are using)

acl schoolname scr 10.2.x.x/

http_access allow schoolname

Is there anything that I'm missing I am really new to linux so I may be missing somthing really simple

The linux distro that I am using is Clarkconnect, mainly because its the first one I ever used and I use it at home and I have never had a problem with it at home.
If you are unable to connect to the internet from the linux machine, that's probably the problem. wink.gif

Please try to 'ping' and see what that shows up.

Ensure that /etc/resolv.conf and ifconfig show the correct information (you may want to set a static IP; I'm unfamilar with your distro, so you'll have to check out any docs they gave you).

Is eth0 even up? Do you have any iptables rules that may be interfering?
