Since I posted my original request re Junkbuster, I've been reading the
posts re same (Thanks to those people who replied directly via email -
still no success - see below).
Regarding filtering web pages, there is a great free program (closed
source) for windows caled The Proxomitron (http://proxomitron.cjb.net/)
which filters the web to an extremely high degree and allows user creation
of filters. Much of the filter code is available, so could possibly be
applied in some way to Junkbuster, I also believe that the program is
written in Delphi, and if so, is a prime candidate for conversion with Kylix.
RE my problems with Junkbuster, I cannot connect to it with either Opera,
Konqueror or Galeon when these programs have their proxy settings pointed
to localhost:8000 (Junkbuster's default), however, without the proxy
setting (bypassing Junkbuster) I can connect to the web. Therefore my
problem is with Junkbuster.
I am also running Bastille (Mandrake 8.0).
My Junkbuster settings are as follows:-
In "aclfile" I have uncommented:-
in "forward" I have added:-
* proxy.viper.net.au:8080 . .
viper.net.au . .
( these are correct - the proxy ine is what I use in my Windows browser and
my ISP has verified that its correct - he also stated that he has an
autoproxy, so in fact I don't need to enter a proxy setting in my Browser
and therefore I assume the same applies to the "forward" file).
in "config" I have uncommented:-
When I set my browser proxy to localhost:8000 I get the error message "
could not connect to proxy server:access denied (or similar, depending on
Junkbuster is running (ps ax | grep junkbuster).
As I CAN connect to the web with my browser if I leave the proxy setting
blank, then the browser must be getting its proxy setting from viper's
autoproxy, and accessing via Bastille, therefore maybe Junkbuster's
"forward" file should point to Bastille and not to "proxy.viper.net.au:8080"?.
Any help or operational acl/forward/config files appreciated.
