NAME

squid_unix_group - Squid UNIX Group external_acl helper  

SYNOPSIS

squid_unix_group [-g groupname] [-g groupname...] [-p] [-s]  

DESCRIPTION

This helper allows Squid to base access controls on users memberships in UNIX groups.
-g groupname
Specifies a group name to match.
-p
Also match the users primary group from /etc/passwd
-s
Strip NT domain name component from user names (/ or \ separated)
 

EXAMPLES

This squid.conf example defines two Squid acls. usergroup1 matches users in group1, and usergroup2 matches users in group2 or group3
