Did you update your package repository?

Code: Select all

gpkg update
http://lantisproject.com/downloads/gargoyle_ispyisail.php for the latest releases

This may not help :? . I also have problems with this and I fixed it by adding a line to /etc/opkg.conf: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=12138&p=54478#p54478

Right, so in such a case the user needs to compile a custom firmware, as the repository you suggest is not guaranteed (and is often not ever) compatible with Gargoyle because it is kernel dependent.

Gargoyle has its own kernel dependent repository included, but in this case does not include the required library.

You can try adding it, but it is not included because it does not work reliably by default.

I do not see what line you added in that post. Given this may be custom stuff, I may just go with a separate VM running squid instead of on the Gargoyle box.

This should work for all architectures:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf >> /etc/opkg.conf

and now we can install the squid package:

Code: Select all

gpkg update
gpkg install squid

:!: As @Lantis says, this procedure may not work because of a kernel change - my last clean install was three months ago, at that point it worked.

Code: Select all

cat /proc/webmon_recent_domains



This output provides timestamps similar to this: 1582043139. What format is that? and how might I convert that to a regular date/time/timestamp.

I believe that will be seconds since epoch.

Just a count of seconds since 1st Jan 1970 (I think).

thanks. I found that earlier. My issue seemed to be in the script I was processing it with.

In Javascript, I tried to create a new Date(epoch). but you have to create a new Date(0) and then .setUTCSeconds(epoch). so that is working now. thx

I have installed SQuid but it did not log anything by default and was blocking my netflix streams. I would like to not block ANYTHING with squid but just log everything that happens so I can inspect the data in the logs.

@RomanHK, do you have your Gargoyle squid.conf file to share?

Unfortunately, I'm not going to help you with the configuration :( . I only use SQUID as a gateway through Adblock and I use a slightly modified configuration without logging.

You need to ask @Lantis what he means and how to start logging. Maybe to get started manual here: http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/config/

P.S. ;) Congratulations on running the SQUID proxy server has a customized configuration that I use:

Code: Select all

#
# Recommended minimum configuration:
#

# Example rule allowing access from your local networks.
# Adapt to list your (internal) IP networks from where browsing
# should be allowed
acl localnet src 0.0.0.1-0.255.255.255	# RFC 1122 "this" network (LAN)
acl localnet src 10.0.0.0/8		# RFC 1918 local private network (LAN)
acl localnet src 100.64.0.0/10		# RFC 6598 shared address space (CGN)
acl localhet src 169.254.0.0/16 	# RFC 3927 link-local (directly plugged) machines
acl localnet src 172.16.0.0/12		# RFC 1918 local private network (LAN)
acl localnet src 192.168.0.0/16		# RFC 1918 local private network (LAN)
acl localnet src fc00::/7       	# RFC 4193 local private network range
acl localnet src fe80::/10      	# RFC 4291 link-local (directly plugged) machines

acl SSL_ports port 443
acl Safe_ports port 80		# http
acl Safe_ports port 21		# ftp
acl Safe_ports port 443		# https
acl Safe_ports port 70		# gopher
acl Safe_ports port 210		# wais
acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535	# unregistered ports
acl Safe_ports port 280		# http-mgmt
acl Safe_ports port 488		# gss-http
acl Safe_ports port 591		# filemaker
acl Safe_ports port 777		# multiling http
acl CONNECT method CONNECT

#
# Recommended minimum Access Permission configuration:
#
# Deny requests to certain unsafe ports
http_access deny !Safe_ports

# Deny CONNECT to other than secure SSL ports
http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports

# Only allow cachemgr access from localhost
http_access allow localhost manager
http_access deny manager

# We strongly recommend the following be uncommented to protect innocent
# web applications running on the proxy server who think the only
# one who can access services on "localhost" is a local user
#http_access deny to_localhost

#
# INSERT YOUR OWN RULE(S) HERE TO ALLOW ACCESS FROM YOUR CLIENTS
#

# Example rule allowing access from your local networks.
# Adapt localnet in the ACL section to list your (internal) IP networks
# from where browsing should be allowed
http_access allow localnet
http_access allow localhost

# And finally deny all other access to this proxy
http_access deny all

# Uncomment and adjust the following to add a disk cache directory.
#cache_dir ufs /usr/local/squid/var/cache/squid 100 16 256

#
# Add any of your own refresh_pattern entries above these.
