NAME
       ext_file_userip_acl  -  Restrict users to certain IP addresses, using a
       text file backend.

       Version 1.0

SYNOPSIS
       ext_file_userip_acl [-dh] [-f file name ]

DESCRIPTION
       ext_file_userip_acl is an installed binary. An external helper for  the
       Squid external acl scheme.

       It works by reading a pair composed by an IP address and an username on
       STDIN and matching it against a configuration file.

OPTIONS
       -d          Write debug info to stderr.

       -f file     Configuration file to load.

       -h          Display the binary help and command line syntax info  using
                   stderr.

CONFIGURATION
       The squid.conf configuration for the external ACL should be:
              external_acl_type          type-name         %SRC         %LOGIN
              /path/to/ext_file_userip_acl -f /path/to/config.file

       If the helper program finds a matching username/ip in the configuration
       file, it returns OK , otherwise it returns ERR .

       The configuration file format is as follows:
              ip_addr[/netmask]   username|@group|ALL|NONE

       Where  ip_addr  is a dotted quad format IP address, the netmask must be
       in dotted quad format too.

       When the second parameter is prefixed with an  @  ,  the  program  will
       lookup the /etc/group file entry for the specified username.

       There  are other two directives, ALL and NONE , which mean "any user on
       this IP address may authenticate" or "no user on this  IP  address  may
       authenticate".
