Hello, we use coova and recently we started integrating Dansguardian on our
We implemented using HS_POSTAUTH_PROXY/HS_POSTAUTH_PROXYPORT coova-chilli
directives, dansguardian+polipo (a lightweight proxy) as filter/proxy and
shorewall as firewall.
We tested such setup with both Linux and Windows clients without issues, but
we found out that Mac OS (at least Tiger and Leopard, I don't have a Snow
Leopard to try, both with Safari and Firefox 3.5) systems have a strange
behavior: after login client cannot reach some (legitimate) websites with
system waiting forever for the page to appear, while blacklisted websites are
blocked by dansguardian.
I've tried many alternative setup to pinpoint the exact problem (e.g. removing
alternatively chillispot or dansguardian) but i couldn't figure out where the
problem is, except that it appears only when both chillispot and dansguardian
I tried with coova 1.0.14 and 1.2.2.
What strike me most is the fact that only Mac OS is affected.
