Last updated on NOVEMBER 13, 2017

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 13.1.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The Squid Proxy Server comes out of the box with Redhat 7 and EL 7. This document discusses use of the Squid proxy server with Enterprise Manager 13c Cloud Control.

Squid is a caching and forwarding HTTP web proxy. It has a wide variety of uses, including speeding up a web server by caching repeated requests, caching web, DNS and other computer network lookups for a group of people sharing network resources, and aiding security by filtering traffic. Although primarily used for HTTP and FTP, Squid includes limited support for several other protocols including Internet Gopher, SSL,[6] TLS and HTTPS. Squid does not support the SOCKS protocol.

Squid was originally designed to run as a daemon on Unix-like systems.
