NAME

       ext_file_userip_acl - Restrict users to certain IP addresses, using a text file backend.

       Version 1.0

SYNOPSIS

       ext_file_userip_acl [-dh] [-f file name ]

DESCRIPTION

       ext_file_userip_acl  is an installed binary. An external helper for the Squid external acl
       scheme.

       It works by reading a pair composed by an IP address and an username on STDIN and matching
       it against a configuration file.

OPTIONS

       -d          Write debug info to stderr.

       -f file     Configuration file to load.

       -h          Display the binary help and command line syntax info using stderr.

CONFIGURATION

       The squid.conf configuration for the external ACL should be:
              external_acl_type    type-name    %SRC   %LOGIN   /path/to/ext_file_userip_acl   -f
              /path/to/config.file

       If the helper program finds a matching username/ip in the configuration file,  it  returns
       OK , otherwise it returns ERR .

       The configuration file format is as follows:
              ip_addr[/netmask]   username|@group|ALL|NONE

       Where  ip_addr  is  a  dotted  quad  format IP address, the netmask must be in dotted quad
       format too.

       When the second parameter is prefixed with an @ , the program will lookup  the  /etc/group
       file entry for the specified username.

       There are other two directives, ALL and NONE , which mean "any user on this IP address may
       authenticate" or "no user on this IP address may authenticate".
