Hi, does somebody know if it is possible to assign users to a specific group for a cache_peer so that the following proxy can decide which domains are accessible for a particular user based on his group? i know this can be easily done with one proxy but here the scenario requires two proxies (the one that our software uses and the customer's one). thanks a lot!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think probably the best option not knowing your complete proxy infrastructure would be for one proxy to “forward” those requests to other proxy for further “filtering/content analysis” per say. On the one proxy, have a rule setup to match your requirement and have it forward to the other one. As such, this would require that both proxies are able to talk to each other. I would reach out the proxy vendors for assistance on “proxy forwarding”.

    thanks for the quick response! well, the "how to" is exactly the point. i'm using squid (3.0 stable) and i defined acls to handle authentication, http access and so forth... What i need to do now is the exact opposite: i need to kind of mask the original user name for the following proxy (company owned). here's an example: Request from within intranet from a user named "Tim Miller" --> Squid (doing authentication, logging,...ASSIGNS THIS USER TO A GROUP "DEVELOPER" and forwards the request)-------> following company proxy decides if the requested domain is accessible for a user named "developer" Hope i could make the problem a bit more comprehensible.
