Subject [users@httpd] Writing ProxyBlock dynamically...anybody doing it?
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2003 14:09:18 GMT
I intrigued by the potential of the ProxyBlock directive.

ProxyBlock can block individual addresses. Or ProxyBlock can block *all* 

No in-between. I just tried experimenting with an Include directive

Include conf/proxy-block.txt

and found that it works great in Apache2. Now, how about dynamically 
writing domains to the text file that don't match a given set? Is 
anybody doing it? Aware of projects that are attempting this?

Sort of a filter. I would like to see ProxyBloxy except negated 
arguments, e.g.

ProxyBlock * !

Maybe it's not the intention of an Apache Proxy Server to do this.

The reason I'm looking for this capability is that I have an environment 
where I only want clients to hit a proxy and the proxy should only allow 
access to a strict set of sites. It's not "filtering" or porn 
prevention. It's more of a "kiosk" environment.

Thanks for any tips or suggestions,
