SQUID + TOR

C. L. Martinez
Hi all,

 As Squid's wiki shows: https://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigExamples/Strange/TorifiedSquid, is it really needed to install privoxy to use squid as a proxy to access .onion domains? Is not possible to install only squid+tor an put the following:

cache_peer   localhost    parent   9040   7   no-query default

in squid.conf (9040 port is the port configured as a transportport in torrc)?

Thanks.

Looks like the ssl certs expired or revoked for the official squid wiki.

Or some other HTTP<->TOR gateway proxy.

Unless something has changed TOR only presents a SOCKS interface which
privoxy uses, not an HTTP one. So Squid will need *at least* working
SOCKS support on peer connections before the above behaviour can happen.

The current state of SOCKS support in Squid is detailed at
<https://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/Socks> that project is still
blocked by the testing issues mentioned at the bottom of the page.
Mostly due to lack of time availability from myself and some others who
showed interest over the years.
