Summary0000071: Squid/DansGuardian not functioning together for "Standard" users.
DescriptionWhen enabling Squid, HAVP, and DansGuardian with "Local Authentication", the following screen is shown everytime a "Standard" user authenticates:

The requested URL could not be retrieved
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://<>/ [^]

The following error was encountered:

Unable to forward this request at this time.

Sorry, you are not currently allowed to request:
http://<>/ [^]
from this cache until you have authenticated yourself.

This request could not be forwarded to the origin server or to any
parent caches. The most likely cause for this error is that:
The cache administrator does not allow this cache to make direct connections to origin servers, and
All configured parent caches are currently unreachable.

Your cache administrator is <xxx>


This only happens to the "Standard" user accounts as the "Extended" users are allowed access to all sites. The only way Squid would proxy the traffic with these options enabled is by removing the following lines from the /etc/squid.conf, it did work for "Standard" users as well; however, I believe this disables DansGuardian (or HAVP) at this point.

cache_peer parent 9999 0 no-query no-digest no-netdb-exchange
cache_peer_access deny for_extended_users
cache_peer_access deny !HAVP_ALLOWED_PROTOS
cache_peer_access allow all
always_direct allow EFW_ips
never_direct deny for_extended_users
never_direct deny !HAVP_ALLOWED_PROTOS
never_direct allow all !localhost
Additional InformationUnchecking DansGuardian allows the "Standard" users to work. Also, even with receiving the above, if a site is explicitly blocked within the Content Filter, it does block it with the appropriate error message.
