Dear Admins,


I had an issue with regex statements on SquidGuard-1.4_4 which I addressed
with SquidGuard people, as per my embedded message below, and the solution
for that issue was to use a better version of SquidGuard.


As I found squidGuard-1.5_b, it was in the format that I wouldn't be able to
install on my pfSense box, as I do with SquidGuard-1.4_4. For one and half
months I have been looking around for someone to help producing the suitable
squidGuard package, until I was given your email address in the hope that
you would help me.


The required file is found at: 


I shall be more than grateful if you could help me with this request.


Hope to hear from you very soon.


Best regards.

   Which version of squidGuard are you using? My current installation runs

   1.5-alpha and the following expressionlist seems to work correctly:




   This block all searches for anal and cum but not canal or circumstance.

   Can you please try this version?


   Kind Regards,
