Hi Eliezer,

My clients simply login via browser, squid just ask them for http auth.
Your are right squid is not a NAS hence it does not respect radius
protocols other then simple authentication request. Btw I can achieve
the multi-user login check without external_acl by using "max_user_ip
-s 1" but this is also not working for me because I have Stunnel in
between so all requests finally forwarded to squid via stunnel (instead
of client original ip) and squid feels all users are coming from single
ip (stunnel ip), also ultimately I will have multiple squid servers so
this trick even without stunnel will not gonna work for me accurately as
user will still be able to login from same username on different servers.
