AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)

Warning: Any example presented here is provided "as-is" with no support or guarantee of suitability. If you have any further questions about these examples please email the squid-users mailing list.


AIM natively uses TCP port 5190 and bypasses the Squid proxy. When configured to use an explicit proxy, it will use CONNECT tunneling to go through squid.

Squid Configuration File

# Permit AOL Instant Messenger to connect to the OSCAR service
acl AIM_ports port 5190 443

acl AIM_domains dstdomain
acl AIM_domains dstdomain

acl AIM_nets dst
