Web Safety 4.6 Beta 1 is available

We are happy to present the Beta 1 of Web Safety 4.6 ICAP web filter for Squid proxy. This version is a lot of new functionality including:

  • new Web UI to integrate your Squid proxy with Active Directory, with support for Kerberos, NTLM and LDAP (basic) authentication schemes. NTLM authenticator does not require Samba to be installed and transparently redirects NTLM requests to LDAP protocol on domain controllers.
  • advanced policy schedules. It is now possible to specify several schedules for a given policy with granular time intervals.
