Configuring proxy server on a Synology NAS

Written by Ingmar Verheij on January 2nd, 2013. Posted in Synology

A proxy server can be useful to reduce the number of requests and data when browsing over the internet. Especially when files are downloaded repeatedly, like opening facebook multiple times a day or downloading the same file frequently (updating multiple vm’s).

Since I have a Synology NAS I wanted to experiment with a squid proxy and a zero-touch configuration for my clients using WPAD.
