Configuring Squid & HAVP(ClamAV) in Ubuntu : Reviews

March 14, 2010

In this article, I will review the previous articles, entitled

Equation result from the configuration on both the article.

  • When a file that you downloaded or a site that contains a virus can be detected directly, so can not be forwarded to the local workstation.

Differences result from the configuration on both the article.

  • Configuring Squid + HAVP(ClamAV) in Ubuntu : Example #1
    • Squid cache files is through scanning.
    • If in the Squid configuration settings, implement delay-pool & content filtering based on IP/MAC address from the local workstation, will continue to function properly.
    Because, Squid still receive an IP/MAC address is actually from the local workstation.
  • Configuring Squid + HAVP(ClamAV) in Ubuntu : Example #2
    • Squid cache files are not through scanning.
    • If in the Squid configuration settings, implement delay-pool & content filtering based on IP/MAC address from the local workstation, will not work.
    Because, Squid serves as a “parent-proxy” and only accept requests from HAVP as “transparent-proxy”.
    So the IP address received by the Squid is localhost (e.g. 127.0.0.1), and this configuration is more suitable to be applied to delay-pool & content filtering, in general.

Is HAVP + ClamAV is working well on both the configuration examples?

To test whether the configuration is working properly, please download the following test file.
