NAME
squidclient - A simple HTTP web client tool SYNOPSIS
squidclient [ -aknNrsv ] [ -A string ] [ -g count ] [ -h remote host ] [ -H ' string ' ] [ -i IMS ] [ -I ping interval ] [ -j ' Host header ' ] [ -l local host ] [ -m method ] [ -p port ] [ -P file ] [ -t count ] [ -T timeout ] [ -u user ] [ -U user ] [ -V version ] [ -w pass- word ] [ -W password ] url DESCRIPTION
squidclient is a tool providing a command line interface for retrieving URLs. Designed for testing any HTTP 0.9, 1.0, or 1.1 web server or proxy. This tool can be combined with scripts to perform any basic HTTP operation. Some additional features for access to the squid proxy object cache and management information are provided. OPTIONS
-a Do NOT include Accept: header. -A 'string' Send string as User-Agent: header. To omit the header completely set string to empty (''). -g count Ping mode, perform count iterations (0 to loop until interrupted). -h host Retrieve URL from cache on hostname. Default is localhost -H 'string' Extra headers to send. Use '0 for new lines. -i time If-Modified-Since time (in Epoch seconds). -I interval Ping interval in seconds (default 1 second). -j hosthdr Host header content -k Keep the connection active. Default is to do only one request then close. -l host Specify a local IP address to bind to. Default is none. -m method Request method, default is GET. Squid also supports a non-standard method called PURGE. You can use that to purge a specific URL from the cache. You need to have purge access setup in squid.conf similar to manager access. Here is an example: acl purge method PURGE http_access deny purge !localhost -n Proxy Negotiate(Kerberos) authentication. Use kinit username@DOMAIN first to get initial TGS. -N WWW Negotiate(Kerberos) authentication. Use kinit username@DOMAIN first to get initial TGS. -p port Port number of cache. Default is 3128. -P file Request body. Using the named file as data. -r Force cache to reload URL. -s Silent. Do not print data to stdout. -t count Trace count HTTP relay or proxy hops -T timeout Timeout value (seconds) for read/write operations. -u user Proxy authentication username -U user WWW authentication username -v Verbose. Print outgoing message to stderr. -V version HTTP Version. Use '-' for HTTP/0.9 omitted case -w password Proxy authentication password -W password WWW authentication password AUTHOR

NAME
basic_ncsa_auth - NCSA httpd-style password file authentication helper for Squid SYNOPSIS
basic_ncsa_auth passwd file DESCRIPTION
basic_ncsa_auth allows Squid to read and authenticate user and password information from an NCSA/Apache httpd-style password file when using basic HTTP authentication. This password file can be manipulated using htpasswd. This authenticator accepts: * Blowfish - for passwords 72 characters or less in length * SHA256 - with salting and magic strings * SHA512 - with salting and magic strings * MD5 - with optional salt and magic strings * DES - for passwords 8 characters or less in length NOTE: Blowfish and SHA algorithms require system-specific support. OPTIONS
The only parameter is the password file. It must have permissions to be read by the user that Squid is running as. CONFIGURATION
basic_ncsa_auth /etc/squid/squid.pass basic_ncsa_auth must have access to the password file to be executed. KNOWN ISSUES
DES functionality (used by htpasswd by default) silently truncates passwords to 8 characters. Allowing login with password values shorter than the one desired. This authenticator will reject login with long passwords when using DES. AUTHOR
