I am using SQUID Proxy with "iptables" NAT firewall rules since 5 years & very happy to have a nice,customizable configuration.

Now, I want to implement "Endian Community Firewall" in between "Squid Proxy Firewall & Gateway" segment. The requirement is as given below expectations from EFW.

* Squid like ACL management & configuration in GUI mode. End User should be able to make own rules as per the need.

* NAT from WAN to LAN segment

* Squid like "content filtering" in GUI mode.

* Bandwidth control for individual IP Address or User wise.

* "User Name & Password" Authentication to access internet.

* Internet access report in GUI mode. (Like SARG , Squid Analysis Report Generator)

Endian has all but two of these things (that I have been able to figure out that is).  The reporting on the community edition is almost non-existent in terms of users and I know of no way to control bandwith per user.  I dont know if anyone else here know how.  AD authentication is relatively straight forward.

I have configured "endian" in my network environment & want to implement below stuff on endian.

1) Overall blocking of porn and bad website
2) Block all kinds of torrents &
3) 1st RULE to block all bad website + facebook + orkut
4) 2nd RULE to only block all bad website but "facebook & orkut" should be accessible.

Is it possible ?  Can i use "squidguard/dansguardian" with "endian"? If yes, then it would be great if someone can provide proper documentation of the same.

Right Now, I am able to create single rule to block all porn & "facebook" type websites. Only first rule is working for a particular IP or IP Set. But, 2nd rule don't work... What is the reason behind that?

Hello EFW Community,

I am glad to announce that "endian firewall" started working properly as per my expectations. Below is the list of configured features,which is rarely available in other open source community firewalls & if available, then it is difficult to configure.

Endian has provided me a nice GUI environment to configure everything. It can be configured without using any official documentation.

1) Squid with Dansguardian
2) Strong Access Control List
3) IPS (Snort)
4 ) Allow SSH & other services to specific IP's address from outside.
5) Strong MIME type content filetring like MP#,MP4 & TORRENTs....
6) QoS is still needs to be improved.
7) Only "Single Site" accessible for a range of IP or for a single client IP.

But, Still there should be "read only" user facility available, so that un experienced user can at least monitor everything.

Thanks Endian.....
