- netfence firmware versions 4.2.x


In some proxy constellations need a customized port which should be forwarded.

e.g. http://www.intranet.com:81 or https://www.intranet.com:81


It's possible to allow this ports via a ACL in the proxy but the proxy does not accept http requests on port 81.


The squid proxy only accept http / https requests on this ports as default.
  443 563 # https
  80      # http
  21      # ftp
  70      # gopher
  210     # wais
  280     # http-mgmt
  488     # gss-http
  591     # confFilemaker
  777     # multiling http



It is possible to add customizied ports to the default list. Just add a ACL in the "Config" > "Box" > "Virtual Servers" > "<Servername>" > "Assigned Services" > "<Servicename>" > "HTTP Proxy Settings" > "Advanced" at last line.


for HTTP ports

  acl Safe_ports port <portnumber>


for HTTPS ports
  acl SSL_ports port <portnumber>



In this example, the port 81 will be granted as http and https port with a comment after the hash.

  acl SSL_ports port 81  # https custmized
  acl Safe_ports port 81 # http customized



For more information about the generic squid configuration, the options and the syntax, please refer the squid home ( http://www.squid-cache.org ).
