Before Installing and configuring SQUID as reverse proxy I just want to add the below point(s). Don’t install SQUID from package installations such as rpm in Redhat and apt-get/deb in Debain.

In order to SQUID run perfectly please change the ownership of the installation folder to squid. By default SQUID will not create cache directory in the installation directory, so we have to create it manually with ownership as squid user and we have to execute squid –z in order to SQUID work properly which will create. Don’t worry about all these points. I will explain these points once we start configuring SQUID.

Now it will ask for a password to access the Linux server through VNC viewer and this password is for root user to login from any machine through VNC.2. If you want to access GUI for a particular user, first login to that user account and execute vncserver command. When you execute this command in the user login it will ask for a password, and this password is for the user to login from remote host through VNC to the Linux server.3. For security reasons please give different password for accessing Linux through VNC other than your password to login to the Linux machine. If you remember and understand these points your goal is almost completed.Step3 : Make sure that your Linux server is running in run level 5/GUI.
