Proxy Question
« on: January 17, 2008, 06:17:57 pm »
Wow my third question about the proxy services.

First id like to say your product is awesome.

I have a suggestion/question

How could I make it so during a certain time of the day the proxy would be turned off so users can access any website they would like?

I was thinking doing a cron job would probably be the best but not sure what command to run.

Could someone please help me out ?

Thank you very much

We don't have this feature implemented.
As you say, you can implement a script that changes the active status of the proxy module.

You can use this as start point (warning: not tested!):
Code: [Select]
use strict;
use warnings;

use EBox;
use EBox::Global;

my ($service) = @ARGV;
if (not defined $service) {
   die 'you must supply a value for the new proxy service status';


my $proxy = EBox::Global->modInstance('squid');
