[squid-users] "Access denied" pages for HTTPS requests

Hello all

I have the following setup:

- Windows client with Internet Explorer and configured squid proxy for
- Squid 3.1.8 as proxy
- Squid access rule:
  acl facebook url_regex facebook.com
  http_access deny facebook

If the client is trying to connect to https://www.facebook.com, the IE
cannot display the squid "access denied" page (IE displays the default
message "Cannot display the website"). It makes sense, because squid
cannot send the error page back via HTTP, if the client is sending a
CONNECT request.

But is there any possiblility to do this anyway?

I did some tests with ssl_bump, deny_info, url_rewrite but wasn't
successful. I wonder if I am the only person with this problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any help.

Best regards
