The basic example uses %SRC (visitor IP address), but any reliable
identifier can be used.

To pass EUI/MAC address to the external ACL helper you will need
Squid-3.2 or later. Older Squid versions do not permit use of EUI/MAC
outside of the ACL testing. Please also be aware that MAC address only
identify machines directly plugged into the Squid machine.

To get the allow/deny behaviour based on clicked accept/reject buttons
you will need a slightly different ACL helper than the bundled session one.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.6
   Beta testers wanted for
