I'm attempting to run a squid3 proxy server with authentication for any user that has a login to the server.
I've followed these instructions, and I am prompted for a username and password when I enter the proxy details. Problem is it won't accept my root username and password or another account that I have. I am sure I'm entering the password correctly. I checked the log and I see :
1359436167.010 1281 174.XX.XX.XX TCP_DENIED/407 5219 GET http://abechik.wordpress.com/2008/12/26/ubuntu-810-squid3-with-pam_auth-revisited/ root NONE/- text/html
Also just to ensure I understand this right: I have a local user 'BOMEz' with password 'password'. I can log into the system via putty over SSH. When Firefox I am prompted for the password I enter BOMEz and password and it just asks for the password again. I'd like to be able to just make Linux user accounts which will automatically have proxy access.
