Proxy Server


[link to this post]
 
With the exception of Squid, are there any other Proxy Servers with authentication, about? This is to run on Raspbian on my Pi

TIA

It seems there are none. frown

Different question: Anyone have any idea why ncsa_auth or pam refuse to actually authenticate? I know I'm using the correct username/password combo but it just refuses. frown

Searching the Debian package list turned up a number of proxy servers.

Also, I managed to get squid working with authentication - seems the username is case sensitive even if you turn case sensitivity off. Setting to all lower case username works fine.

There are normally a lot of ways to achieve most things in Linux. At a push Apache's httpd can be used as a proxy (I wouldn't recommend trying that though, it's proxy features are designed as a reverse proxy for hosting)

What is it that you are trying to achieve?

Different proxy packages may be better at different things, and there are a number of reasons for installing a proxy. Without more detail you may not get much help as the answers are likely to depend on the details.

Achieve: a proxy server with authentication on my Raspberry Pi.

I'd previously had squid running just fine, but was having an issue with the authentication but that's fixed now
