manageing bandwidth through squid is not hard but atm I m not strong in it.. Infact I have forgot the concept actually ! Anyways.. you have to use Delay Pools to control bandwidth.

About Authentication.. see my post regarding NCSA athentication --> Squid  NCSA authentication .

error occure in smoothwall while giving NCSA athentication
« Reply #4 on: August 18, 2005, 09:01:56 AM »
Hi Ricky

Thkans for reply....


as per your  post regarding NCSA athentication  Squid NCSA authentication
i gone through that but it is not working in smoothwall squid

 in  smoothwall is there  such NCSA modules  i serach for that but i have not found there ...if there plz tell me how to compile it... and againg whenrver i give command

htpasswd -c /usr/local/squid/etc/passwd

it is generating one error

Usage:
htpasswd [-cmdps] password file username
htpasswd [-cmdps] password file username password

htpasswd -n [mdps]  username
htpasswd -n [mdps]  username password

-c create a new file
-n Force upadate file;display result on stout
-m Force MD5 encryption of the password (default)
-d Force CRYPT encretion of the password (default)
-p do not encreypt the password (plaintext)
-s Force SHA encryption of the password
-b use passwd from the command line rather than promting for it

on windows TPF and netware sstyem '-m' flag is used by degault
on all othere system the '-p' flag will probly not.

and it goes on promt without creating that passwd file
give me solution for that

thanks in advanced

hmm..

I had done that long ago, anyways..

you are missing username in your command .
BTW.. on of our other LS user has suggested me earlier to not use -c in that as then you can only create one user .
So now you have to do is
Code: [Select]
htpasswd /usr/local/squid/etc/passwd <username>
in place of <username> give any username u want.

want to see bandwidth usage with the help of smoothwall
« Reply #10 on: August 23, 2005, 07:25:32 AM »
hello Ricky.....

          I need to monitor the bandwidth usage of my clients. I need a tool that is realtime. So that when ever my link is slow due to high traffic I can easily determine which client is using up most of the bandwidth at that particular time. i am using smoothwall express 2.0

is it possible wth smoothwall....

Any idea how I can set this up?

thanks in advanced........

Smoothwall already have bandwidth monitoring tool, you can refresh its graph to get the current data I think.

BTW.. you should send PM to MUTHU asking the question.

I think there are cron job set . You need to remove them, best is to see "man cron" to know more about it.
