We run EMSS 8.3 and have the caching proxy in out dmz running on Windows. Mobile users can be off-network and their agents will use the proxy address to contact our EMSS server on our inside network. It is working fine except I would like to enable authentication. The Heat caching proxy is just squid running on Windows and I know squid on Linux supports authentication. I was told that there were no resources on how to do this with the caching proxy. There is also no way other than squid.conf to configure the proxy while on Linux there are command line settings to do things like configuring local users.
Anyone figure out how to get the caching proxy to require authentication for agents that are remote from the network and are trying to communicate with the EMSS server on the inside network? I did try to get regular squid on Linux to work using the same squid.conf file that the caching proxy used but couldn't get it going. I'm not a Linux expert.
Thanks in advance.
