Block specific HTTPS website

The URL Redirect feature of SafeSquidâ„¢ is a very popular feature and should be used with some imagination and logic to get the best results.

Block specific HTTPS website

Postby lmsmartins » Thu Apr 09, 2009 3:01 am


I configured the iptables on Ubuntu with the following rule:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport http -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080

I blocked the domain by selecting its category to be blocked on safesquid and it blocks requests on as well on when I configure the browser to use the proxy server.

However in transparent proxy, safesquid only blocks requests on allowing on

What can I do to make this work on transparent proxy?

You can not transparently redirect HTTPS connections.
You will have to allow them direct access.

For setting up transparent proxy, see -
