Hi all,

I ma trying to set-up proxy authentication for users which are
currently outsode of our network. I have a small program which
recognizes who is allowed to connect and who is not:


$server = "a.b.c.d";

while (!feof(STDIN)) {
$str = fgets(STDIN,1024);
$str = trim($str);
$arguments = split('(\ )+',$str);
if (!(isset($arguments['0'])) || (!isset($arguments['1']))) {
echo "$EXIT_ERROR";
echo "\n";
$username = $arguments['0'];
$password = $arguments['1'];
$conn = @imap_open("{" . $server .
":993/imap/ssl/novalidate-cert/norsh}INBOX", "$username", "$password",
if ($conn == false) {
echo "\n";
} else {
echo "\n";



This program works fine from commandline. Squids starts 5 instances of
it but this is the last thing it does with it - the scripts never get
anything to their standard input fro squid process (I verified this by
intercepting mail() commands into the body of the while-loop). Here is
my squid configuration excerpt:

auth_param basic program /scripts/auth/squid_auth_imap.php
auth_param basic children 5
auth_param basic realm Squid proxy-caching web server
auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours
acl vnejsi_autorizace proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow vnejsi_autorizace

>From the point of view of the web client: it gets the appropriate

Proxy-Authenticate: Basic realm="Squid proxy-caching web server"
client sends new request with usenameassowrd but squid everytime
denies the request.

This is on FreeBSD with squid installed from ports collection:
Squid Cache: Version 2.5.STABLE12
configure options: --bindir=/usr/local/sbin
--sysconfdir=/usr/local/etc/squid --datadir=/usr/local/etc/squid

What should I do now to get auth data passed to my script ?

Thanks in advance,
