Java Web Apps and Squid Proxy

Many Java Applications have a hard time authenticating with a Squid Proxy server, especially when using Kerberos. There is a handy work around for this.

Add these lines in you Squid.conf

acl Java browser Java/1.4 Java/1.5 Java/1.6
http_access allow localnet Java

Remember order matters with your http_access allow lines, so you should place this just above the http_access allow line that forces authentication. As an added mesure I add localnet ACL which can be set to you local network.
