IP range vs. single IP

If you’re running Squid instances that you share with friends and family (for content filtering, etc…), remember to pay attention to using a combination of IP ranges and single IP address entries with ACLs. Else, your going to be allowing your instances to be open proxies. And that’s not good.

Remind yourself to tail access_log files as often as possible, or setup some type of reporting so you’re fully aware of who’s trying to access the web through your private proxies.
