acl quick questionJim,

You will have to restart squid to capture the ACL changes.
Just create a cronscript that issues the command squid -k reconfigure every 15 minutes....or whatever interval you feel is appropriate.

  Will this work?
  I want to limit access to certain resources via squid by source IP address. I have defined acl thusly:

  acl LIMITED_OK src "/etc/squid/limited"
  acl LIMITED_URL url_regex -i <This is defined appropriately>

  http_access allow LIMITED_OK LIMITED_URL

  This all works.

  My question is will this work if I have an external process the lines in /etc/squid/limited ?

  So initially, /etc/squid/limited will be empty and an external process will add lines to this file and delete lines from this file. Will squid pick up these changes dynamically or will I have to "reload" squid to pick up the changes?

  thanks in advance,

  jim drash
