    I need help with Squid Proxy Caching Software.

    I have reviewed the official Squid documents and searched the web extensively for it but couldn't find a simple configuration guide.

    Here is my problem:

    1- I installed FREEBSD release 7 [ Full Installation ]

    2- I installed SQUID 3
    make install

    3. added only
    visible_hostname myhost

    4. run the command
    ./squid -z

    5. ./squid start

    but ./squid -k check
    gives me:
    Squid: error: could not send signal 0 to process 15456: (3) no such process

    my question:
    what is the minimum configuration i can do to start using squid just ?

    why are you buiding your own squid when bsd ships with squid ?

    I didn't know that. I am new windows-to-linux user.

    ANyway, i have installed squid

    here is the log
    in squid.conf
    i have added
    visible_hostname mylinux
    http_access allow all
    icp_access allow all
    cache_dir ufs /usr/local/squid/var/cache/ 100 16 256

    never mind, it works after little tuning up in the squid.conf

    Now a quick question for the Squid Guru

    How I can I add user authentication for the proxy

    Anyone who connects to the proxy should get a username and password for verification..

    how can I enable this on squid.
