Graphical installer and manager for Squid proxy cache.

Overview

SquidMan is a graphical installer and GUI for the squid proxy cache for OS X. Squid can:

  • act as a proxy server for other computers on your subnet;
  • and restore the operation of many OS X system services that normally fail through authenticated proxy servers, such as Software Update.

What's new in SquidMan

Version 4.1:
  • Upgrades the bundled version of Squid to 4.7
  • Notarized for, and tested on Catalina
  • Includes compatibility from macOS 10.10 Yosemite up to OS X 10.15 Catalina.

This I use on an off but I prefer polipo because it has some ad blocking. If squidman could incorporate some form of ad blocking that would make it number 1

Great job! Download, install, configure - done! I am using squid to cache content behind Glimmerblocker for ad removal. We don't have a super high speed internet connection, but now everyone in the house has an ad free (mostly) accelerated internet browsing experience.

So how does one get them to work together? I'm not having much success at the moment, but I've also got Little Snitch in the mix.

How did you set it up,?

I installed this to run a proxy through a VPN tunnel. It installs Squid for you and has a GUI. Free. Excellent.
