Many times you may want to deny users from downloading huge files
using the proxy server. This blog will help you do that with squid
To Readers: All those starting with # are run by root user and ;'s are comments inside the configuration files
Here we are using reply_body_max_size TAG in squid.conf
acl limitme src 10.0.0.1-10.0.0.50
reply_body_max_size 2097152 allow limitme
reply_body_max_size 0 allow all
By default, there is no restriction on the maximum
file that can be downloaded.
Here limitme acl is allowed only a maximum
of 2 MB download.
2097152 bytes = 2097152/1024 Kbytes => 2048 KB => 2 MB
