NTLM Authentication Helper for Squid without Samba

Greetings all,

We have now made available next 4.6 build of Diladele Web Safety with additional NTLM authenticating helper for Squid that allows to do the Negotiate/NTLM and pure NTLM authentication on your proxy without need to install and manage Samba and/or join machine to the Active Directory domain. It is now possible to use the proxy not only from domain joined machines but from all your network as long as the user knows his AD credentials.

Build is at http://quintolabs.com/soon.php, docs with rewritten Active Directory integration tutorial at http://docs.diladele.com/administrator_guide_4_6/active_directory/index.html.

Please take a look and share your experience – hope it will make the life of the network admin a little easier.

Best regards,
Diladele Dev Team

  • Monitoring and reporting subsystem is further improved. It is now possible to store more monitoring events in the database before it reaches its limits. It is possible to store generated reports as PDF files.
  • Fixed several minor bugs in Web UI when deploying on pfSense 2.3 and FreeBSD 10.

It is recommended to update to the latest version when time permits. The following links may be helpful.

Web Safety ICAP in Docker

See https://github.com/diladele/docker-cluster

This project is the first attempt to run Web Safety ICAP server in a number of docker containers managed by Docker Compose. Currently the following containers are present:

  1. ICAP server
  2. Monitoring server
  3. Web UI
  4. Updater (runs, checks for updated definition files and exits)

You should have Docker and Docker Compose installed. First you need to bootstrap the project by running bash bootstrap.sh in src folder. Then docker-compose up and access the Web UI of Web Safety through your browser with IP address of the host, port 80.

Please note: you MUST set the ICAP server address to in Web UI / Web Safety / Settings / Network right after starting for the first time!
