SquidRestrict is a Web-based tool that allows multiple time restrictions to be placed on Internet usage for firewalls that use Squid.
Primarily, the focus of SquidRestrict is on the Linux-based firewalls IPCop and Smoothwall.
SmoothWall Express is an open source firewall distribution based on the GNU/Linux operating system. Linux is the ideal choice for security systems; it is well proven, secure, highly configurable and freely available as open source code.
SmoothWall includes a hardened subset of the GNU/Linux operating system, so there is no separate OS to install. Designed for ease of use, SmoothWall is configured via a web-based GUI, and requires absolutely no knowledge of Linux to install or use.
What's New in This Release:
· This release updates the writeacls() and restorebackup() functions to backup the squid 'acl' file when saving time restrictions, in order to prevent the restrictions being lost when proxy changes are made.
