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.

Several people have mentioned the tamper alert previously, and in at least one case it was traced to the user placing squidman into a folder with a "?" character in folder name. Other similar unix special characters may also result in false tamper alerts. Be sure to place the .app file in a folder (and path) with no special characters, and you should no longer see the tamper alert.

This is a very useful tool for people interested in learning more about squid. In addition for those who would like a basic proxy server you should quickly be up and running with SquidMan. An optional demon mode would be quite, but then again, you could install squid. Great Job. Note : By default most settings and caches are stored within the users library folder.

this works a treat though I did need to turn off "enable stealth mode' in the firewall for this to work :? Great software, now I can use my ibook (connected to this mac via firewire - dead screen) on the internet. Excellent!!

this is great and in conjunction with DansGuardian makes the perfect internet filter and speed cache. Using macs at home and want to filter what your kids can see, or maybe at a school or college then this and DansGuardian are perfect for you.

Very nice installer routine. Double click and off you go. I was upgrading from ealier version. Smooth as anything. Now if only the DG maintainer did his updates, I would be fully Squid / DG current.

Great App! Smooth interface which complies(generally) with the AHIG - lightweight, and seemless installation and configuration. Installation and operation is stable under 10.3.6(21 days so far). It'd be even better with a preference pane.

Squid kindly updated my installation, has a GUI for all the basic options ones needs, then refused to start up at all, having hosed the cache directories. Fantastic idea, but totally useless.
