Web Shield related question
« on: October 17, 2013, 04:13:18 AM »
I have a small network at home. PC1 (with WinXP) is directly connected to the internet, and at the same time, connected to a home network with 6 more PCs and laptops.

PC1 is running Squid proxy server. All other PCs and laptops that want to access the internet, should connect to PC1's proxy server. I have a slow internet connection at home and that's the reason why I'm using my own local Squid proxy server. Meaning, all internet connections will pass through PC1's proxy server.

Now, what if I have Avast Free on PC1 with Web Shield enabled, and the other PCs access the internet via PC1, does Web Shield scans the web traffic coming in and out from the proxy server? Or it only works on the browser installed on PC1?
