Script to automatically turn your CentOS 5.2 installation into a Router with Squid Caching

Script to automatically turn your CentOS 5.2 installation into a Router with Squid Caching

I’ve put a lot of time into this guy! And I’m proud to share it with you. This script and configuration files, when configured correctly for your network will turn your CentOS 5.2 installation into a network router with dhcp, dns, squid, samba, iptables and webmin. I’ve also provided all of these files tarballed together so that you can just untar them and use my configuration. Make sure you change the admin password in the first section of install.sh

NOTE: This script is missing one function. You must change net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0 to 1 inside of/etc/sysctl.conf 

To run my script automatically just login as root and run the following commands:

wget http://greenwireit.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/install.tar
tar xf install.tar
./install.sh

Notes: For this configuration eth0 is your WAN interface and eth1 is LAN. I actually have no method of testing this configuration because I had to sanitise it to get rid of my own network variables. If you have any problems PLEASE post them in the comments and I will adjust them.
