I'm having some problems configuring my local proxy server so that it would restrict access to certain websites.
The proxy server I'm using is Squid; I edited its configuration file found in
/etc/squid/squid.conf to include the following:
acl wikipedia dstdomain .wikipedia.org http_access deny wikipedia
I tried to redirect elinks to use Squid. According to Squid's config file, it listens to port 3128, so in
/etc/elinks/elinks.conf I added the following:
set protocol.http.proxy.host = "localhost:3128"
I also restarted Squid with
sudo /etc/init.d/squid restart, but I can still access the banned websites using Elinks. What did I do wrong?
